With everyone trying to peak at the end of the season, the stage is definitely set this Thursday to end on a high note.”

Marvin Chou, Assistant Director of the AHSAA said, “We are so thankful and excited to be at this point in the season for Cross Country.  We are thrilled that all of our Sectionals should have terrific weather this week. The Sectional Meet Directors have done an outstanding job in securing some of the best facilities to run these meets at. Local communities and fans will hopefully go out and support these students as they try and secure a spot in next week’s State Championships.”
