What we are watching: This year will be the reintroduction for many to what Oatlands used to be. Now as the preview for Class 4/5/6 states, this meet is likely to fight for the title as the biggest meet in Va. Not only will it have quantity but expect quality too. This meet draws the best and the best performances from the best. Just think of the meet record holders... Weini Kelati and Drew Hunter.
