Who is "Going for the Win" and in the "Team Hunt "?
Preview of the Large and Small School Races at Lexington Catholic tomorrow. KYtrackXC.com's Tyler Karnes will live on-site tomorrow at Lexington Catholic.
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.

Movers and Shakers of Week 3
The EG Plummer Invitational is named after EG Plummer, one of Kentucky's earliest distance stars. The miler went on to coach at the school as well. This year's version of the meet looks remarkably like the AJ Special from last week.

Jimmy Goldson is a junior at Pulaski County High School in Somerset. He was 5th in the 1600m Run in Class AAA this past May at the Kentucky State Track Meet. Last year in cross country he was 17th in Class AAA at the Kentucky State Cross Country Meet as well.
Below are the top ten teams statewide based on returning times from the 2011 Cross Country Season. These are not official rankings as these do not take into account variety of course conditions, weather, and/or difficulty. No new runners are taken into account. These are just for fun.
The Greater Louisville Classic will be held on Saturday at Tom Sawyer Park in Louisville. KYtrackXC.com will be live on-site for all the College and High School Action. Check back for Live Updates. This is a preview of the high school action for this Saturday.
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 start of The Cross Country season may have already passed but the looming start of the school year is closing in on the runners faster that Leonel Manzano’s kick. This weekend, at Masterson Station Park in Lexington Kentucky the annual Henry Clay Invitational was held. This year the race featured only four races with over ten teams. The day started out at a pleasant & sunny 70 degrees at 8am and then climbed to a sizzling 92 degrees with a heat index of 96 degrees at 11: 30am forcing the meet officials to cancel the reserves’ races.
Week 1 is in the books and KYtrackXC.com is pleased to announce the first set of Runners of the Week for High School and Middle School races.
