Oscar Smith senior Peter Smith, better known as Sneaky Pete and the 6A State XC Champion, will not be defending his title this year. Peter reached out to MileStat.com to inform us that he will be moving to Gig Harbor (just outside of Seattle) in Washington State.
Though he is a defending state XC champion in Virginia, he will definitely still have a couple chances to take home some titles out in Washington. His 15:15 and 1:52 bests in the 5K and 800 will rank him 3rd and 1st amongst returners in that state.
In Virginia this move will definitely shake things up in the 6A title race where both him and Antonio Lopez will not be. This makes Grant Northcutt the odds on favorite yet again heading into the season and Ahmed Hassan and Tyler Lawson close seconds on paper.
