They have defeated both Exeter Manchester Invite and Pinkerton Pelham Invitational head to head at one point or another this season. Throw in a few brand new varsity runners in Miranda Compton, Amelia Edmonds, Tessa Millette, coupled with the lone senior leader in Autumn Graham, the Bears also have the ingredients to challenge on Saturday and beyond.
Led by their terrific trio in Clare Veverka, Rachel Hurley and Schuyler Michalak, the Cougars will always post the low sticks to be competitive in the large meets. Further, with the development of 4 runner Sarah Newell, one can never count out Con-Val.
With one of the best packs in the state, the Crimson Tide continues to improve as the season progresses. Fortunate to have the potential low-stick in Morgane Orcutt, Concord has a strong chance to hold their ranking and qualify on Saturday. If their supporting cast can continue to improve as they have all season, expect to see the Cardinals competing as a team next weekend.
Talk about racing strong on Mines Falls, last year Souhegan essentially stole the show from Pinkerton with a 5 point victory by running a phenomenal team race. This year, the Lady Sabers have persevered through injuries and still find themselves on the precipice of qualifying once again for New Englands in spite of these challenges.
Meet of Champions Preview – New Hampshire Cross Country
Again, looking at the success of their middle school program, expect Salem, led by freshmen Bethany Graham and Natalie Coryea to have an outside shot this weekend, and to qualify for multiple New Englands Championships in the upcoming years. Because everything is so close, if one or more of these teams catch fire on Saturday, they could surprise! Individually Simply stated, last year was epic with Jackie Gaughan running in the A few variables to consider when looking at First off Cali Coffin looked to join Robitialle as the next potential runner to break Unfortunately she has incurred an injury causing her to miss the rest of the season.
As a sophomore, we will simply hit pause on this particular story because assuredly she will be back next year picking up where she left off.
Robitaille, has been steadily improving as the season has progressed, and one would have to surmise has been biding her time until championship season. What is exciting is she will have company once again in Reynolds, who has to be the favorite this week as she posted the fastest time by 16 seconds last week in the most challenging conditions of the day. Expect these three to take off from the gun and establish a triumverate at the front of the field.
Unfortunately the third variable will again be the weather. With inches of rain in the forecast for Thursday night to Saturday morning, the course will be wet and relatively slow. Quite the return to the top.

If Mother Nature cooperates just a bit, this year could be even faster. If the season was a race, Concord has led gun to tape almost there anyway.
NH 1 all season, the Crimson Tide has everything. They have set their sites on New Englands, but that does not make the MOCs any less important as they like to build momentum to bolster their confidence when attempting to upset favorite and Northeast 1 Bishop Hendricken of Rhode Island next week. While Concord seems to be a possible foregone conclusion, the next several teams might be separated by only 30 or so points.
Based on the Divisional merge, the pack is led by NH 2 Keene, the expected D1 runner-up by 13 points over Pinkerton last weekend. This cushion shrinks to only 5 points on the merge. NH 3 is no stranger to contending for a perennial New England berth. Last week, Pinkerton selected the right time to have their best team performance of to place 3rd by a scant 3 points ahead of 4th place Mack Plaque rival Londonderry.
If Nathan Steiger or Steven Groulx can close the gap to the top 4, they could be 2nd. Londonderry NH 4 has also picked the right time to be racing on all cylinders. The weekly improvement from injury of Will Heenan probably has a lot to do with that. Only thirteen points out of 3rd and 18 points out of 2nd on the merge, the Lancers could very well leapfrog Pinkerton and Keene. Sporting a great pack time of only 25 seconds between their runners, Kerry Daley, Eric Nowak, Matthew Griffin, and Dylan Hotter, if this pack can edge ever closer, they will be at 2.
I admit, though I downplayed her chances in the NHCC preview, after her blitzing of our home course last week I was pretty confident the day would be hers. Once recovered they were off and running.
Schedules: Girls Cross Country
Sophia executed the race strategy out perfectly as usual, gaining psychological and physical advantage throughout, and eventually winning in the fastest time of the day. A PR on that course? Dare we say it? Maddy raced fantastic, running another sub and almost cracking the top As an example of how far both Maddy and Emma have come, Emma ran A summer of running and who knows; top 25 next year Maddy? Maizie capped off her MVXC career with one of her best races ever, an almost minute improvement over last year.
She was so quick that I missed her on the course twice and thought she had dropped out.
Crossing the line was bittersweet, as Maizie has been such a great leader this year and certainly will leave a void, but the team is all the better because of her. While only running one year on the team, she proved her worth by always running in the varsity 7 this year.
Tristan, perhaps affected a bit more than others by the weather and never a big fan of Derryfield anyhow, was the next MV runner to cross the line. Another team stalwart, and a great source of humor as well as inspiration, we have been lucky to have had the last four years with Tristan.
Wrapping up the day for the girls was MacNeill, over a minute faster than she was over the same course a month ago and showing she deserved to be in the race. Overall, the girls placed 8th, achieving the pre-season goal of a top-ten finish and 6 places higher than a year ago.

The plan was derailed before it began by a lack of summer running, but as the season progressed and runners improved it became apparent that it was still a possibility, though like the girls it would require a hero effort. Individually, we once again had a favorite in the race, although when you have such a big favorite as David was it gets a little scary as the target on your back grows. No such courtesy next week, please! That was a little scary. Leading from the gun, DRen never was able to pull away, but set just a quick enough pace that no one was able to muster up a kick good enough to steal victory away.

Matt runs well at Mines Falls, so look out! More on these seniors after their final races. Third for MV was our top returning runner, Ethan.
