"The trail that leads to the PIAA cross country championships in Hershey will be a bit more level in the fall.
It will also be tougher in some respects for WPIAL runners ... and easier.
The PIAA Board of Control at its meeting prior to the basketball championships in State College at the end of March voted to expand classifications in cross country from two to three. The change goes into effect this coming season.
Instead of individual and team champions being crowned in Class AAA and AA, there will be champions in Class AAA, AA and A at the PIAA and WPIAL levels."
