Altoona Mt. Lion Invitational - Meet Preview
BOYS: The Mifflin County boys will look for a strong race at Altoona on Saturday. Led by Chayce Macknair and Brayden Harris, expect Mifflin to compete for the team title, as those two will be in the mix for the individual win. Altoona and Forest Hills could challenge in the team race.
The field, however, is deep with some of District 6's top boys. Tyrone Area's Zach Kohler, Forest Hills' Mitchell Chunta, Bishop McCort's Michael Hanik, and Bedford's Van May are among the top individuals that could make some noise here.
GIRLS: The individual race will figure to be close here. Somerset Area's Rosie Chan will look for a strong start to her season. Forest Hills' Emily Montag should be a threat for the top spot, too. Bishop McCort's Bridget Barbato, fresh off a good freshman season, will be worth watching for.
Oakland Catholic is entered, but the team will rest its top runners, including PA#3 Hannah Schupansky. OC could still contend in the team race with its 'B' squad here. Tesslyn Helms will be one to watch for the PA#4 squad. Saint Marys Area, Forest Hills, and Mifflin County will also be in the mix for the team title.
