AAA Boys Feature: Ex Aug 28, 2008

Webster’s defines it as the practical knowledge, skill, or practice derived from direct observation of, or participation in, events or in a particular activity. We can be fairly sure Paul Vandegrift never met this Webster cat personally, but rest assured, the Upper Dublin coach is a huge proponent of the value of said experience after his team’s first-ever trip to the state cross country championships a year ago.

AAA Boys Preview: Upper Dublin could break through. Tarsnane & Miles top returners. Aug 27, 2008

Upper Dublin is the AAA boys best shot at denying North Penn a 2nd straight XC title, but other teams are lurking. Perkiomen Valley senior Jimmy Tarsnane is the top-returner from last year with a 8th place finish. Brad Miles, a North Penn junior, has run a 15:24 5k and should have a shot of finishing in the top-3 as he leads North Penn on another quest to stand atop the podium.

AAA Girls Feature: Latrobe - A winning mix of coaching and talent... Aug 26, 2008

Hard training, a lean racing schedule, and smart coaching are the keys to the consistent success that Latrobe has enjoyed over the past three years. Arguably the most important factor is a group of talented runners coming together behind a common goal that they all aspire to achieve.

AAA Girls Preview: Emmaus may face strong competition. Cygan-Bower headline individuals. Aug 26, 2008

Emmaus girls return their entire top-5 from last year’s State Championship team, making them the clear favorite to be the first AAA girls’ team to win back-to-back titles since Hatboro-Horsham. But Cumberland Valley, Latrobe, Liberty and others may have something to say. Jess Cygan, Liberty, and Natalie Bower, Latrobe, headline returning individuals.

AA Girls Feature: Lewisburg coming together for some unfinished business. Aug 24, 2008

Most cross country teams are made up of athletes who began their athletic careers in other sports. But the Lewisburg girls definitely have those "other sports" very well covered. But despite the various athletic routes they took to reach the sport, each girl on this season's varsity now has one thing in common. They're runners first, and foremost.
