Nike South Invitational -- The Woodlands, Texas
- - -
Breakdown: Working as a primer for the Nike Cross Nationals South Regional later in the year, this meet typically puts athletes on the region course -- on the Bear Branch Soccer Fields -- for the first time. While the nationally-ranked The Woodlands boys likely won't race their top five -- the program is coming off a big effort at the Desert Twilight Festival last week in Arizona -- the team's depth will continue to shine through. On the girls side, Katy Cinco Ranch's Heidi Nielson will look for a bounce-back race after a seventh-place performance at McNeil last week, and she'll go up against a host of top talent in Texas.
