Washburn Set To Dominate And Polar League Set To Chill - Wednesday Meets

Weather: Mid-50's, partly cloudy, low wind, ever-so-slight chance of rain


Top Teams: Hastings (19 points), Simley (67), North Saint Paul (80), South Saint Paul (80)

Top Individuals: David Nogle (Hastings, 16:43), Eric Howd (Hastings (17:22), Griffin Myers (Hastings (17:23), Cole Ogne (North Saint Paul, 17:28)

The Skinny: It's a smaller meet in which Hastings really stands out, so they should be very well here. Nogle has been running very well recently and is well on his way to a potential spot at State. The hosts from Simley appear to be the best of the rest, with their four top runners having season bests of 18:37 or better.


Top Teams: South Saint Paul (19 points), Hastings (44), North Saint Paul (79)

Top Individuals: Amanda Kelly (South Saint Paul, 19:22), Linnea Urban (Hastings, 19:36), Star Costa (South Saint Paul, 219:48), Nicole Kelly (South Saint Paul, 20:12)

The Skinny: Just as Hastings should own the boys race, South Saint Paul should own the girls race. They own five of the top six season bests coming into the meet, with only Hasting's Linnea Urban expected to stop SSP from projecting towards a perfect score. Expect SSP's top three runners (Kelly, Kelly, and Costa) to work like they did at the Swain Invitational and run together near the front and finish with the top three if Urban doesn't win.
