If this meet is known for one thing it would be fast times. This meet flat out produced some of the most impressive times of the season and also showed us a lot of the talent our state has going into the post season. Headling this talent were two of our state's biggest stars, Weini Kelati (Heritage) and Andrew Hunter (Loudoun Valley) who ran away with their races in very fast times. Kelati won her race in 17:31 while Hunter made quick work of his race by breaking his own course record by 30 seconds to run 14:54.
With arguably one of the largest invitationals of the year happening this weekend we were bound to have great stories. Aside from all those, we also had some blazing performances at the Third Battle Invitational up in Winchester as well. Check here to see how some of the state's best runners did this past weekend.
