Coach: Jim Buffoni (7th year)

Last year: 3-10

Key Returnees: Kami Norcross, Sr.; Maria Mazzu, Sr.; Tia Brown, Sr.

Coach Buffoni starts 2013 with eight runners, whom "have been hard workers in other sports."

Brown, a former soccer player who joined the cross country squad last year, is looking to build on her 2012 success, which saw her post numerous top-25 finishes in Berkshire County races.

Buffoni also said that there are a number of talented new runners who could help elevate the Blue Devils another step in 2013.
