Returnees from the 2018 district meet were ranked by finish and then their positions were adjusted based on season best 5k time and 2019 outdoor track season bests. Additional weight was given to athletes who set personal bests in events ranging from 800m-3200m during the 2019 season, with the most weight given to those achieving 3200m and 1600m PRs. Freshman were included if they raced at one of the following XC meets in 2018 – PTXC10, Gettysburg Invite, Carlisle Meet of Champions, Iron Bridge Invitational.
