The Nike-Fleet Feet Coach Wood Invitational delivered some classic racing as usual this Saturday at the Gainesville College Course. It was a best of the best fest, especially in the Championship Boys race and the Girls race was no slouch. This race was hyped and talked about the past few weeks and it must have been so great that it drained the energy of everyone there onsite from discussing it afterwards, lol. What ultimately was on display the 6A State is anyone's game and whoever 'has it, and wants it more' will be the State Champ...Austin Sprague focuses on the trail ahead of him.
This year is the 10th edition of the meet, and could be the most competitive one yet. With Nike athlete Shannon Rowbury set to appear, the always popular Fleet Feet/Nike tent, and the Cross Country friendly atmosphere of Gainesville College, the “unofficial All Class State Meet” (as one messageboard poster dubbed it) should be packed with plenty of intrigue. by Coach Andy Christie
