Results were posted at the meet, but not online as of yet. Here are a few quick notes.
The Tatnall girls are back to defend their Maymont title from a year ago as the top ranked team within the Southeast region. In the invitational girls division with Tatnall will be many of Virginia’s top ranked teams as well as strong squads from California, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, and North Carolina. Virginia's #1 ranked team Blacksburg will hope to gain a victory at Maymont as a springboard to a Nike Cross Nationals berth, which has been the season end result for many past champions at Maymont.
Jake Hurysz of Eastern Alamance pulled off the biggest victory of his career this past Saturday at the Wolfpack Invitational.
With the season now fully underway, coaches, fans, athletes, & parents have all gotten a better idea of who belongs at the top. With big invitationals being run every weekend from now until the end of the season, look for these to change constantly. I'm sure there are still those sleepers out there who flying under the radar.
Tons of great racing this weekend. Take a look at the recaps from each meet. Fastest time ever by NC girl, Wesley Frazier, 17:05.09!
It's a big weekend ahead with 7 Invitationals all around the state from Wilmington to Cullowee, the Coastal Plain to the Mountain Region. 5 meets listed now!
TCR's girls continue to look good. Definitely the team to beat among NCHSAA 4A teams. Asheville's duo of Presson/Harwell have been leading the way for 4 years now.
One of the most talked about meets in North Carolina every year happens tonight at South View High School.
