Preview written as if States was this weekend.
Historically speaking the 1A race at XC States has been the most exciting team wise. This year it looks like that is the case again with both Mathews and Auburn vying for the titles and ranked 1-2 in our pre-meet rankings. Auburn leads the way in girls while Mathews leads on the guys' side. expect some very tough races and close points 3-5 this weekend.
The top three racers in our book heading into the weekend for this race are Dylan May, Jordan Keith, and Peyton Hurd. All guys are sub 17 and performed well at states last year. May and Keith went 2-3 behind Nolan Harris (graduated) so you can expect them to try and take over the race. Hurd however will try and keep up the Auburn winning way.
This race will most certainly be decided just prior to the two mile mark.
