BOYS

1. Cheverus: Runner-up the last two years at the Class A state meet. The Stags return a few key seniors, including Jake Dixon in the sprints and Nick White in the throws.

2. Scarborough: Can never be overlooked after winning the last four Class A indoor titles. The Red Storm return 2-mile champion Jacob Terry, and have the depth to cover most events.

3. York: The Wildcats have won two of the last three Class B titles and placed second last year. Top returnees include Tucker Corbett, Jordan Pidgeon and Matt Arsenault.

4. Thornton Academy: The Trojans finished eighth at last year’s Class A state meet but bring back scorers in the sprints and field events, including Dylan Smith and Derek Boissonnault.

5. Falmouth: The Yachtsmen moved to Class A last year after winning three of the previous six Class B state titles. They finished 10th at the Class A state meet but return several underclassmen who scored.

GIRLS

1. Thornton Academy: After two years as runners-up, the Trojans won Class A with ease last year. They return top point-getters Tori Daigle and Alexandra Pettaway, in the jumps and hurdles.

2. Falmouth: Returns a crew of underclassmen who placed or fell just shy of placing at the Class A state meet a year ago. Could be a sleeper in only its second year in Class A.

3. Scarborough: Last won the Class A title in 2012 but brings back a half-dozen point-getters in at least four events.

4. Greely: The runner-up at the Class B meet the last four years, Greely is the only team to challenge four-time state champ Waterville. With senior Sophia McMonagle, and juniors Alyssa Coyne and Emma Egan back, this might be the Rangers’ year.

5. Bonny Eagle: Nearly won the Class A outdoor championship in June, falling just shy after a disqualification in the 1,600-meter relay. With junior distance ace Kialeigh Marston back, the Scots should be a contender.
