Photo: From the Seahawk Invitational, by Ben Hovis The Bishop McGuinness girls head into this weekend’s 1A race as the favorites. This is unfamiliar territory for the girls from Bishop, as it is only their 3rd year in the 1A classification. Prior to becoming a member of the NCHSAA, they competed in the NCISAA. Last year Hayesville won their 4th straight title, but only squeaking by a determined Bishop team by 3 points. Coahc Youtz has a great team with talented girls. This team should go down in history as Bishop McGuinness' most successful, not matter what happens on Saturday.
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 & NCRunners.com 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 NCRunners.com 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 NCRunners.com 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.

After the first weekend of XC meets, coaches have changed some of their votes. Enloe & Green Hope looked very good in their meets. Mooresville couldn't move up but looked outstanding at WNC. TC Roberson may be the girl's team to beat in NC this year. Owen . . . 2nd place at WNC, look out. South View is much improved, and the list goes on and on. Check out the newest installment of the NCRUNNERS.com Cross Country Coaches Poll.
