Two principal races happened this weekend - Albemarle and CNU - with L.C. Bird attending Glory Days as well. Maggie Walker was dominant, and we saw impressive induvial efforts out of Burcham, Plummer, and Heinen.
This weekend, we saw two competitive meets - the V.T.C.A. Invitational and Patrick Henry Invitational - as well some impressive individual performances, namely from defending 5A state champion Colby Burcham. Glen Allen's boys also took care of business at the Octoberfest Invitational.
This weekend revolved around a couple of high-octane meets - RVA and Fork Union - both with different formats, giving us a chance to see runners perform in new ways.
