The ladies of North Oldham lost a point scoring machine in Brianne Brown, now at the University of Louisville. There is plenty of talent left, check out the event by event performances back from 2013.
Below you will find the 800m times from 2013 scored like an XC race with only 4 scorers from each team. This is not exact science here, but it gives a very good idea of what to look out for in the 4x800m Relay this spring. The scoring part of the far side does not help as much as the Total Time line in the middle.

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.
Movers and Shakers of Week 3
The Rumble Through the Jungle has quickly over the last few seasons developed into one of the largest meets in Kentucky and this year's version is no different. This year's theme is #1 Showdown, for teams and individuals.

With the inland rains of hurricane Isaac looming over the Midwest, and already causing havoc for Cross Country in the Western portion of Kentucky, I was wondering how much of a factor the weather was going to play into today’s race. However, as I stepped out of my car and onto the course, the sun was covered by non-threatening clouds and the temperature was hanging around the upper 70s, a beautiful day for racing.
The Shelby County Invitational is annually one of the best meets of this weekend pulling several Louisville schools. The only question is will these schools actually run their full squads.

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.

In the recent KYtrackXC.com Pre-Season Class AA State Rankings, Edmonson County was ranked #1 with defending champion, North Oldham sitting at #2. Both of these teams could make an early argument that they are #1, but the early edge goes to the Edmonson County. Lexington Catholic looks to be just a piece away from being right there with Edmonson and North Oldham.
