The Blacksburg girls have had to deal with the Hidden Valley girls as a thorn in their side for much of the past four cross country seasons, but the Blacksburg boys have remained relatively unchallenged in their neck of the woods at the district and regional level during that same time period. That might all change this fall though with Abingdon emerging as a legitimate contender in the Group AA ranks. They will waste no time facing off this season as both squads open up on Saturday at the Clash with the Titans in Roanoke.
41 points was the magic number for both Blacksburg boys and girls to start their 2011 cross country season with team titles at Hidden Valley's Clash with the Titans. Each squad had worth challengers in their season opener, but four boys and five girls in the top 15 individual places proved Blacksburg to have superior depth to the rest of competition on Saturday.
