Matchup of The Year: Northcutt vs. Ghiselli

After a long bout of injuries it looks like Rachel Northcutt will be back in action. She last saw the state course at full strength in 2016 and finished as the runner-up that year. Julia Ghiselli though is only a sophomore and ready to break through. 

That makes this potential States matchup between Northcutt and Ghiselli is very likely this year. The classic senior vs underclassman. 

Both have their strengths and that should make for a very impressive race. Entering the season you can almost guarantee that both of these have one thing on their minds, this matchup and winning that first XC state title.
