OWENSBORO INVITATIONAL

September 08, 2012 @ Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro, KY

Hosted by Owensboro High School    

 

The Owensboro area schools are back at Yellow Creek Park this time for the Owensboro Invitational. The meet is loaded up with the locals but it has a big addition in Class AA Powerhouse South Oldham.

The Varsity Girls race pits the always strong Daviess County, currently ranked #4 in Class against Class AA #1 South Oldham.  Daviess County has one of the best groups of three in the entire state with Claire Payne, Whitney O'Bryan, and Amelia Reynolds.  All three are presently in the KYtrackXC.com AAA Top 10.  Payne and O'Bryan have flip-flopped victories over each other this season, so either of them could win tomorrow.  South Oldham has their own power trio up front with Grace Whitworth, Keightley Dudgeon, and Erin Wilson.  These two squads should fill up the top 10 with Daviess County having the edge. 

The Varsity Boys race is the same story between two old rivals, Class AAA #3 Daviess County vs. #4 Apollo.  Though in a bit of variety, the South Oldham boys #2 in Class AA themselves should wreck some havoc on the party.  Daniel Southard from Daviess County should push to the front with a large group of runners chasing him.  The Apollo front three (Johnson, O'Bryan, Durbin), South Oldham ( Faul, Dowdy, Dowdy), and Daviess County (Quisenberry, Cecil, Carpenter, Baker.)  Don't discount the duo of Zac Garrard or Jeff Keeley from Owensboro as well.  The quality up front is solid in this meet and the battle will come down not to the top threes but instead who has number five in first .
