The Lakeville North AppleJack Invitational is back after its absence last year due to the pandemic. 24 boys and girls team will face off against each other for the meet title. This will be a big meet that features ranked teams and runners on both the boy's and girls' sides.
Headlining the list of teams on the boy's side are Minneapolis Southwest, Lakeville North, Lakeville South, and Centennial. If our projected team standings are correct, the boy's team race will be a good race, and we should be looking for those fourth and fifth runners to see who might come away with the win.

On the girl's side, the main attraction will be the team race between Edina, Prior Lake, and Lakeville South. Those teams happen to be the 1st, 4th and 5th ranked teams in the week 2 coaches poll. This will be the Edina girl's first big meet in Minnesota this season, and it will be a good test of their squad against some of their top competitors.
