September 15, 2012 @ Hancock County in Lewisport, KY
Hosted by Hancock County
The Hancock County Hornet Invitational is loaded when it comes to the younger divisions but is pretty small when it comes to the high school races.
The Varsity Boys race is the best of the two with a solid battle between the host school, Hancock County, Henderson County, and Owensboro Catholic. Hancock County and Owensboro Catholic are regional foes who will each be looking for the championship in November. Each of them has a strong #1, so the test will be in the middle pack of race.
Individually, Cody Roach (Hancock County), Kyle Wilson (Henderson County), and Michael Goedde (Owensboro Catholic) are the runners to watch. All three ran last week at Owensboro with Wilson leading with a 17:10 over Roach 17:36 and Goedde 17:58.
The Varsity Girls race is wide open with several girls possibly winning. Morgan Belt of Union County is coming off a strong performance at Owensboro where she finished 21st. Leslie Burns of Apollo should push her in the race. Chrisitin Pool from Henderson County could be in the mix, but she has not run since the first race of the season.
