For years it was Loudoun Valley's star runner chasing the pack of Blacksburg stars. This year the script is flipped with Kaitlynn Wolfe chasing Valley teammates Elise Abbe and Ricky Fetterolf. These three girls also went 1-2-3 last year at states.
Last year it was Fetterolf taking home the title but this year Wolfe is coming back for the crown. Abbe is of course also on the up and up and cannot be counted out either. This should make for quite the race where teammates will be rivals and rivals will be teammates as they traverse the Great Meadow course and position themselves for a sprint to the finish.
