9/8 Abington XC Invitational (Abington, PA)
Haddon Heights, Montgomery, and Pennsauken all traveling out of state to Abington, PA.
9/8 Cherokee Challenge (Marlton, NJ)
This one is always an opening weekend blast, two mile course and grade by grade racing. Plenty of top times from last year are returning for more including the overall returner Michael Keehan of Delaware at 9:47 in the senior division. New Jersey will see Colin Kane, TJ Hillyer, Justin Lopez, and Christopher Spisak leading the way out of the boys returners.
On the girls side the top returner listed in this year's entries is Victoria Vanriele, who is a dominant 800m runner on the track, she ran 11:39 to win the sophomore division last season. Kate Rathman will look to win the senior division on her home turf and Katy Storti also highlights the top returners. Some talented athletes who didn't compete last year at this meet will be attending as well such as Jade Tricomy of Toms River South and Maddy Kopec of Red Bank Catholic
9/8 PTXC 10 (Kutztown, PA)
Heading over the PA/NJ border is NJ#9 Mendham, Montgomery, Montville, and St. Joseph Metuchen. Will be a great first look at the returning 1-2 Jack Attack for Mendham with Jack Stanley and Jack Jennings. Montville Twp's Anna George is also in the entries, after a great freshmen and sophomore season she had a shortened junior year. It will be great to see her on the course once again.
9/8 Roxbury XC Invitational (Roxbury Twp, NJ)
This meet was already looking great and then with the unfortunate cancellation of the Randolph Invite entries became even bigger! For the boys NJ#4 Morris Hills and St. Benedict's Prep is listed among the talent that will be there. On the girls side keep an eye out for the up and coming sophomore Laurel Kurtz of Hunterdon Central, junior Julia Trethaway of West Morris Central, Sydney Bradle of Mount Olive, Jamie Habib of Madison HS.
