Owensboro, Ky. – Kentucky-Indiana Border Clash 2013 typified the beginning to most prep cross country seasons; both races were instigated by crushing tempos from the gun. These blistering paces were matched with equally hot temperatures, as the heat index preceding the 6 pm CT girls race was a stout 99 degrees (88 degrees, 68% humidity). By coupling first race excitement with exotic conditions, western Kentucky and southern Indiana athletes, coaches, and fans experienced or saw performances under humid and oxygen debt filled circumstances.

It’s always a good insight on both sides to be able to see how the races play out and teams stack up in the pecking order when the small schools are separated from the large schools at the Lexington Catholic Invitational. It’s as close as we will get to a preview of the state meet and it makes for great races all day long.

Movers and Shakers from this past week.
Preview of the Fast Cats Classic
This past weekend was strange, there were a ton of meets but nothing was really huge. There were some quality match-ups but even that was hard to decipher as many schools were missing runners. Fall break is part of it, minor injuries, and just simply being tired from all the racing over the last seven weeks. Here are some of the things that stuck out to me from this past week.
The Greater Louisville Classic is held on the same course as the Trinity/Valkyrie Invitational, but they are two totally different meets each year. Trinity/Valkyrie brings an intense team battle that is more regionally based (KY, IN, OH) with most of the top Louisville schools in attendance, whereas Greater Louisville brings in more depth from throughout the state of Kentucky giving teams from the far west (Paducah area) a chance to compete against teams from the north and areas right outside of Louisville.
Example 1 St. Xavier Won Palatine Invitational over many ranked Illinois Teams 2 Trinity Won Franklin County Invitational with 33 points - over AAA #3 Daviess and #4 Apollo..... led by Keegan Raidt in 3rd 21 second gap 1-5
Teams took advantage of their first look at the High School State Cross-Country meet course at Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday, Sept. 22. The state meet will be held at the course on Nov. 10.
Saturday at the Horse Park there will be great racing going on with a set of loaded Kentucky fields. Many of the top ranked runners and teams from across the classes and state will be in attendance.

KYtrackXC.com Power 10 – September 30, 2011 These are the top best teams and individuals in the state of Kentucky regardless of school classification. These are not your typical rankings in the sense because without classes the KY State Meet would have more depth so a team’s 5th place runner in Class AA who normally scores well enough with a 18:00 is suddenly too far back to matter in a one class system. The need for top runner is similar, that is obvious it is just on an exaggerated scale.
The Franklin County Invitational was the big meet of last weekend with several of the top ranked teams competing head to head. Below is a breakdown of who beat whom.

I have been and ran in a lot of cross country meets in my life, but this past Saturday takes the cake as far as hot goes. It was nearly unbearable at 9am when the Varsity Boys Race started in Madisonville on Saturday. The same held true across the state as individual races were cancelled at Madisonville, Shelby County, and the Ryle Invitational’s. Last week I meant to mention a couple performances - Sye Head (Logan County) is the top KY runner at the KY-IN Border Clash - Nicholas Waltman (Sayre) is going to make Jacob Thomson work a little harder than first expected in November Below are some observations from Week 2

The Class AAA Boys competition is always the most fierce individual and team battle in November and 2011 looks to be another year of the same. Last year at the 2010 championship, fans saw the best head to head dual over the last 10 years with Daviess County’s Evan Ehrenheim and Trinity’s Jacob Wildenmann running side by side for three miles with Ehrenheim then pulling away to win. Wildenmann’s second place finish helped lead Trinity to an upset victory which was their 18th state title in school history. That win gave Trinity the record for the most state team titles in Kentucky history.

The Mobile Challenge of Champions is going to be run this Friday and Saturday in Alabama. This event is typically one of the top meets in the Southeast this early in the season. In fact three of Kentucky’s best performances ever have happened at this meet. Owensboro speedster Casey Combest ran a 10.34 100m Dash in 1999, Jonathan Brown former Union County/Western Kentucky jumper leaped 24-03 in 1999 also, and Andy Fryman of Mason County/University of Kentucky threw 62-10 in the Shot Put in 2003. All three of those performances are Mobile Meet Records. This year looks to be no different with several Kentucky athletes making the trip south to compete.

The 2004 National Boys Cross Country Coach of the Year. Seven Kentucky State Championships. Numerous individual state champions. Together they sound like a recipe for success. This success describes the Daviess County Panthers Boys Cross Country program in Owensboro, Kentucky since 1977 and head coach Tony Rowe. After an accident reduced his movement last year, Coach Rowe found himself with some extra time. In this opportunity, he started writing the tale of his program, his successes (many) and failures (few) in this tribute to the Daviess County running tradition. That tale became Tony Rowe’s first book, entitled Trails, Trials, & Triumphs.
