Central Region XC Championships Coverage Nov 3, 2012

Kara Dickerson apparently does not need too many races to shake off any rust. After last year missing much of the cross country season due to a stress fracture, Dickerson came back to help her Midlothian squad to state team title with a sixth place state meet finish. This year, Dickerson had the early stages of a stress fracture with a stress reaction to start the season and caused her to sit out of all races until the Manhattan Invitational in mid October. In only her second race of the season, Dickerson won the Central Region title in a 5K PR time of 18:06.

Group AAA Pre-Regional XC Rankings Oct 30, 2012

  Sean McGorty and the Chantilly boys are not slowing down in championship season, but instead taking it up even another notch after steam rolling through invitational season as the top ranked runner and team in Group AAA. Sophie Chase and the Lake Braddock girls are similarly establishing themselves as firm #1's in Group AAA, but West Springfield's Caroline Alcorta was not too far behind Chase at their district meet and the Oakton girls will race head-to-head with Braddock for the first time this week at the Northern Region Championships.
