The Oldham County Haunted Woods Classic has gotten rave reviews from many runners as an almost brand new meet. This week I'd have to say that it's the meet of the week in the state as a few of the top runners and teams in the state travel to Buckner, KY including the O'Shea's. Looking ahead at the weather it looks as if there will be little to no threat of rain, however may be a little sloppy as the day progresses from the steady rain coming down on Friday.

Team-wise it'll be another day where the Oldham County girls attempt come out and show that they're poised to repeat as state champs on their home course. Last weekend they beat the 2nd ranked team in Tennessee, the Brentwood HS girls. One team that I'll be really looking out for are the Sacred Heart girls. Last weekend they went to Cary, NC to the Great American XC Festival and showed out jumping up to the 4th spot in state team projections.
Individuals will be a battle for 2nd place with Ciara O'Shea as the odds on favorite once again. Among a few of those battling it out for #2 will be the Christian Academy of Louisville girls Kaylee Wilson and Addi Dewey with a strong pack of Oldham County girls very close behind including Ella Henage and Grace Wayland, but it seems that Oldham County produces a new #1 runner each week so who knows. Sacred Heart's Sarah Wilkinson will also look to build on an awesome PR performance last weekend and knock down that time once again.
