2003 @ Great Meadow...
could we see this in 2009 @ Great Meadow???
You better like some mud or you might as well stay home this weekend. Champions will be crowned in likely very adverse course conditions on Friday at the VISAA State Championships (private schools) and on Saturday at the VHSL State Championships (public schools). The remnants of Tropical Storm Ida, which has developed into a powerful northeaster storm, has pounded the state of Virginia this week with heavy rainfall and wind. Both state meets will be run as scheduled, while many in the state are without power, schools are closed on Friday, and travel is difficult due to severe flooding. MileStat.com will be providing on-site coverage from both meets.
Will be providing text updates from the state meets through facebook
November 14, 2009 @ Great Meadows (State Course) in The Plains, VA
Hosted by Mountain View
Brief Meet Summary (Full summary to come soon) - Very poor and muddy course conditions, which got progressively worse as the day went on. The largest classification Group AAA were the last races of the day. Times slowed by at least 15-20 seconds if not more based off last year's results in ideal course conditions. Temperature was ideal in the 50s with cloud cover, except for the last half of the Group AA girls when the sun came out and several runners struggled to get to the line including two of Blacksburg's key scorers. Course record by Kathleen Stevens (17:34) of Blacksburg.

Brief Meet Summary (Full summary to come soon) - The private school runners on Friday at Woodberry Forest gave a sneak peak of what might be in store for the public school runners on Saturday at Great Meadow. The Division I boys got to break in the course with their spikes as the first race of the day, while the Division II girls had to navigate around the slop and mud in the last race of the day. The champions in the field though were not affected by the conditions as many of last year's winners once again claimed VISAA state cross country titles.

Meet Preview Article - After slow starts to their seasons, the Woodberry Forest boys and Anneka Wilson of The Potomac School are coming on strong in championship season and ready to defend their state titles from a year ago. The Bishop O'Connell girls are expected to stream roll through another state title with no signs of letting up in the near future with no seniors in their top seven, while Fork Union's Josh Morris appears more than fit to join the small list of sub 16 performers at Woodberry Forest.
