The Main Line boys cross country scene featured a flock of fine runners in the fall of 2021, as reflected in the 2021 All-Main Line boys’ cross country teams. The All-Main Line high school boys cross country teams are selected by the coaches. Because Main Line Media News covers 19 high schools, the Main Line Media News sports staff limits the number of sports available to first team, second team and honorable mention – but follows the priority of the coaches’ selections. What follows are the 2021 All-Main Line high school boys’ cross country teams:
