NCRunners Staff Picks For The NCHSAA State Championships

The NCHSAA State Championships have so many tight races this year that could go many different ways.  NCRunners editor Jason Creasy, former editor and state meet announcer Jeff George, and long time NCRunners Contributor Tommy DeLauney have their picks for each race below.  Out of the 16 state champions to be crowned tomorrow, we only agreed across the board on three of them!  

Good luck to everyone racing tomorrow as it should be an excellent day for North Carolina distance running!
