PREVIEW
The biggest meet in the history of the George School will feature Jerrica Bauer defending her home turf and make it three wins in as many weeks. She will have strong competition in Gabrielle Wilkinson of Friends Central. These two had the fastest times for PA athletes at last week's Briarwood Invitational. It's the present vs. the future in the first of several matchups this season. A win on Saturday will give the victor a big advantage over their opponent. In the team chase, Council Rock North has three 20:10 or faster runners in their squad, more than any other team in the race. Gwynedd-Mercy Academy have run well thus far, earning a pair of top three finishes in the early going. Archbishop Wood will be looking for the form of their 2013 campaign that saw them finish 3rd at the state meet after a stuttering start at their home invitational in August.

In the boys race, Council Rock North have been led by Brian Arita, who has had a strong start to the season that includes a runner up finish at the John Sharp Invitational on the opening weekend. Arita will look to lead his team to their first win of the season. Holy Ghost Prep finished 6th last week at the Centaur Invitational and they finished in the top five at Abington. With the competition in the District 1 AA division intensifying, Holy Ghost Prep will look for a win to keep them in contention.
