US #1 Team Loudoun Valley Just Made VA Look Real Good

It was up in the air until just a few weeks before the meet whether the Loudoun Valley Vikings, who are preseason #1 in the entire country, would run their full squads at this awesome Pennsylvania meet and boy are we thankful that they did!

Despite facing sloppy course conditions the Vikings of Loudoun Valley still managed to average a scary 16:02 average on the boys' side and a 19:42 average on the girls' side. Both of these varsity squads also reigned supreme and ran away with the team titles this weekend. The boys did so with a scary 27 points and the girls achieved their win with 84 points. They were not done with just those races though and also brought home the Boys Varsity B team title, the Girls JV team title, and the Boys JV team title. The Girls Varsity B team finished second. 

These times and team finishes are nothing short of jarring for the entire state of Virginia. Yes, they are a long way from winning an NXN title or making it to NXN on the girls side but man are they good. This season opener is just the beginning and that should get every super excited for what could be one of the most epic seasons in VA history. 

Individually things were also a big deal. On the girls' side you had senior Natalie Morris and freshman Ricky Fetterolf finish an impressive 3rd and 4th in 19:12 and 19:22. On the guys' side it was a 1-2-3-4 finish for the top group of Affolder, Bogucki, Hunter, and Morris all between 15:49 and 15:55. To put these times in perspective they are roughly 15-30 seconds slower than what they ended up running at Oatlands last year.
