True cross country weather and course conditions greet runners at Great Meadows Oct 7, 2006

A steady downpour of rain that started yesterday and continued throughout today made Saturday\'s Octoberfest Invitational at Great Meadows a mud slop-fest as two over flowing creek crossings and long stretches of mud and puddles made for tough race conditions for the high school runners throughout the day. Not a day for anyone to run a personal best, but some outstanding performances were recorded throughout the day. Northside senior Catherine White took the \"A\" girls race in a time of 19:08.07, but more impressive was James River junior Kristen Wolfe only finishing nine seconds off the Foot Locker All-American in a time of 19:17.81. Meanwhile, Radford junior Nathan Brame pulled away from the field midway to come away with a 17:10 victory in the \"A\" race with Manchester senior Andrew Duty charging hard into a second place run of 17:16. Maryland\'s best in Quince Orchard (142 pts) as well as NTN Southeast #9 ranked squad knocked off SE #7 Thomas Jefferson (161 pts) for the \"A\" boys team title. The Northern Region took three of the top four team places in the \"A\" girls\' race with James Robinson (151 pts) finishing ahead of higher ranked AAA squads Langley (2nd, 178 pts) and Maggie Walker (3rd, 195 pts). Complete meet summary is posted with photos as well as video clips (clips of runners crossing creeks a MUST SEE) and a photo gallery from Octoberfest!

Weekend Review: Centrowitz to #3 on Milesplit Natl / Lancer, Doc Jones, Octoberfest Invites Oct 8, 2006

In what can be described as (for lack of a better way of putting it), the first weekend in the post-Bull Run regular season, some Maryland teams and athletes scattered to one of four regional invitationals, while other schools took the weekend off to train... >>LANCER - No. 1 Matthew Centrowitz (Broadneck) eclipsed the competition yet again, this time running a new PR in 15:00.50, enough to boost him all the way to #3 on the Milesplit Network-Wide 5K Elite List. >>DOC JONES - No. 9 Liz Mccarter (Mount Hebron), who finished in 19:02.9 taps most impressive time of the meet. >>OCTOBERFEST - The top ranked Quince Orchard boys sent up huge sparks towards the folks at Nike, narrowly defeating Thomas Jefferson, the #3 ranked school in the Southeast region. The win will propel QO into the NTN SE top 5, a great accomplishment. >>INTERSTATE - The River Hill and Severna Park boys and girls teams were a surprise to the Western Maryland meet, as both schools were the top teams of the day in both large schools races.
