PTXC 9 - Boys' Blue Race Preview

  • Virtual Meet
  • 2016 Individual Champion: Joe Cullen (Wyomissing Area) - 16:41
  • 2016 Team Champion: York Suburban (76 points)

The Blue Race should bring some great excitement on Saturday.

PA#18 Tyler Leeser of Milton Area will be one to watch in this race. He was third last season in this race, but Leeser will be favored here. The 11th place finisher in AA last year ended up running 4:16 for 1,600 meters. 

A pair of talented sophomores will toe the line on Saturday in the race. Juniata's Garrett Baublitz and Holy Cross's Andrew Healey are in the field, hoping for strong efforts. Baublitz opened his season with a second place finish at Big Valley last week, while this will be Healey's invite opener.

St. Joseph-Metuchen (NJ)'s Matthew Costello, Montgomery (NJ)'s Harry Gould and Elizabethtown's Christopher and Charles Scharf should also be in the mix on Saturday.

The team race is fairly open, with NJ's St. Joseph-Metuchen and Montgomery, squaring off with Milton Area.
