National-level competition is whipping into shape as September rolls toward its end.
This weekend will feature a ridiculous boys lineup at the Bowdoin XC Classic, a powerhouse battle between two nationally ranked runners at Chile Pepper and potential for greatness at the Wingfoot XC Classic. Note: Over in Idaho, MileSplit's Bryan Deibel is on the ground ahead of one of the Northwest's best regular season meets in Bob Firman. He'll have a separate preview ready today on the meet.
Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania and Florida, teams will get glimpses of state-level talent. Plus, it will mark the debut of Northern (PA) High School junior Marlee Starliper.
Check back this weekend for the Scoop, and read on for mini-previews for five big meets on tap this weekend.
