I really wish we had more data to gon with A Public Cross Country, but this seems to happen every season since A was split up into Public and Private. Its pretty obvious the toughest area is Area 4 as judged by the races held at Athens Academy ( a real XC course) all season and last Thursday. As for the other Areas...no results have been turned in and I don't have much faith in some of the courses being legit that Area 1,2,3 competed on.
