Maymont Festival Preview - Invitational Boys Brandon Miles Sep 26, 2008

The 2008 McDonald's X-Country Festival at Maymont will not only help sort out who will be the favorites for state cross country titles this fall, but also who will be the runners and team seeing themselves racing into December in either Portland or San Diego this season. The Jamestown boys (Williamsburg, VA) have been racing at the Maymont Festival for years and this year's meet could be the most important as the top ranked team in Virginia and #2 ranked team in the Southeast region will be the squad which everyone else in the invitational division will be attempting to measure themselves up against and try to knock off the top ranked school from Williamsburg. The race for first among the top individuals should be even more exciting and wide open with five of the top six ranked runners in Virginia in the field as well as 12 of the top 15. Read more... Pictured left by John Herzog: Andrew Colley of Jamestown is the top individual returnee from the 2007 Maymont Festival as Colley placed 3rd in the invite field behind Peter Dorrell and Jason Witt in a time of 15:39.

One is right here in NC, and the other is in Hoover, Alabama.  Two NC teams decided to race at the first ever NTN Regional in Hoover. Green Hope and Broughton are headed down south in the hopes to shock other SE teams and qualify for NTN Nationals. Should one or both of the teams qualify, they will keep the NC streak alive, as Chapel Hill has attended the National meet the last 2 years. Ryan Hill of Hickory looks to lead a very large NC contingent at this year's Foot Locker meet. He won the Regional last year and has hopes of repeating his victory. Cross Country Coaches Poll-9/11/07 Ben Hovis Sep 11, 2007

 This week's Coaches Poll sees some big changes in all of the classifications. The Adidas Seahawk Invitational really shook things up this past weekend, especially among the 4A schools. The next poll in two weeks will have a new twist. Coaches will also be voting on a North Carolina top 15. So coaches, pay attention to all classes! Next weekend, a brand new feature to Milesplit.US & should help shed some light on the top teams in the state. It is an overall team ranking based on athletes who have met the standard. Speaking of the standard . . . tonight I went back through all the results up to now and and added in many new performances. The new standards are 18:00 and 21:30. I'm trying to include more athletes and you will see how it pays off in the team scoring next week.
