No results reported so far on the meet in Lenoir Wednesday evening. Only underclassmen competed and some of them were running at training paces. The focus is on Wendy's and the races that count soon after.
UPDATE GoBlueRidge "WHS XC Has 4 Top 10 Runners at Lenoir" "Zack Cole led the men's team with a fifth-place finish."
Here's a look at the schools racing in the faster races. The Watauga Girls will run against West 4A rivals Ardrey Kell, Myers Park, and TC Roberson, plus lots of strong eastern and non-NC schools. The Providence Girls are not in the Invitational race. The line-up is the same for the Boys, except Providence boys are in the Invitational.
Last years results: Girls Invitational, Boys Invitational, Girls Junior/Senior, Boys Junior/Senior, Girls Frosh/Soph, and Boys Frosh/Soph
Map of course. Here's a video run-through also.
Coming from the north on I-77...take Brookshire Freeway (I-277) exit east to
Independence Blvd. Follow Independence Blvd. east (approx. 6 miles)
until Village Lake Drive. Turn right onto Village Lake Drive. Travel on
Village Lake Drive for less than a mile until it dead ends into
Monroe Road. Turn left onto Monroe Road and McAlpine Creek Park will
be less than a mile on your left (just before Railroad overpass).
And this from WendyV (last year): "Usually
if you go past the entrance to the park on your left, you will find
overflow parking on the left at a shopping center just up the road. It
is much easier to get in and out if you park there. Most of the time
volunteers with vests will tell you where you can park - the businesses
that are not open on Saturdays. After you park, you just follow the
others down a bank and go to the right at the bottom. After you pass
the train trestle, you will keep walking and usually see Watauga's tent
on the left. The starting line and finish will be straight ahead."
