The weather this week had been perfect: clear skies, sunshine, and mid 70’s. However, it wouldn’t be October in Kentucky if Mother Nature didn’t have her way every once in a while and a cold front accompanied by rain came through overnight and made for a chilly, windy Saturday morning.
The Trinity Invitational brought many of the best from Kentucky together along with a ton of other talent from six other states. This is a look at the Kentucky action from Trinity/Valkyrie.
In only its second year of existence, the Bluegrass Cross Country invitational has already earned a reputation. Notable for fast times, strong competition, and hotly debated validity (more on that in a minute) this was a meet I’ve had on my coverage radar for some time. Last year’s meet saw a battle down to the wire between John Spencer of Lafayette and Eric Baugh of Villa Madonna with both PRing in the mid-to-low 15’s. This year was hoping to produce more of the same, adding several more to the “sub-16” club. To ensure legitimacy of the course Coach Hawboldt of Tates Creek confirmed that no less than 3 separate entities measured the course: The University of Kentucky, Lindburgh High School (St. Louis MO), and himself. Each gave measurements within 1% accuracy of 5000m.
Henry Clay has hosted the kickoff meet for the Lexington area for several years now, but this year’s meet ran to a more somber tone. Last January, a member of the Henry Clay cross country team, Tanner Duke, tragically passed away. In honor of his memory, this year’s meet was named the Henry Clay/Tanner Duke Invitational. As cross country season begins I cannot imagine how difficult of a time this must be for the Duke family. So as you read this, take a moment to stop and give a moment of your thoughts and/or prayers to Tanner Duke and his family.

Video Interview with Ben Young
For the second time in a month I found myself at Masterson Station for another meet hosted by Tates Creek. Although it was later in the year this time around, the weather was a bit warmer and the conditions not as optimal as it was for the Bluegrass Invitational. Coming into today, there were key match-ups on both the guys and girls side of racing. Here’s how they played out:

The battle for AAA region 6 got a very telling preview on Tuesday evening with the running of the Fayette County Championships at Masterson Station Park. The cool autumn day with little wind made an ideal scenario for runners to drop fast times in what would be a good tune-up for regionals.
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.

What a meet. In my opinion this has to be the best meet so far this season from a talent stand point. As you read, remember all schools were coming off of spring break or were currently on spring break, so all top efforts need to be praised. In addition, the meet was held under cloudy skies with fallen temperatures as the day progressed.
