1. Brunswick: Despite the loss of distance runner Will Geoghegan to graduation, the Dragons return several scorers from last year’s Class A championship team, including pole vaulter Mike Slovenski, and have a year of development in youngsters such as sprinter Matt Hatke and Liam Cassidy, who is expected to contend in distance events.

2. Falmouth: The Yachtsmen have won four of the last five Class B indoor championships, including the 2010 title, but need to recover from losses to graduation. Will Wegener, a senior sprinter, is expected to pace the Yachtsmen, who typically have high numbers in the program. 

3. Scarborough: In finishing third at last year’s state meet, the Red Storm was able to be competitive by piecing together small points over a range of events. The Red Storm didn’t have an individual state champion and its highest finish was the second-place 3,200 relay team, paced by underclassmen Tom Hague, Nick Morris and Robert Hall.

4. Greely: The Rangers are typically among the top three teams in Class B, and won the 2009 Class B championship. While the Rangers graduated some of their top athletes from last year, they return many of their state competitors, the bulk of whom did not score but gained valuable big-meet experience.

5. Cheverus: The Stags finished second in the state last year but like Falmouth and Greely, the Stags lost many standouts to graduation. Dartmouth-bound distance runner Jack Terwilliger will pace the Stags, who also have an up-and-comer in sprinter Raphael Tshamala.
