I know some teams don't run a fast as they can during league meets. But come Saturday watch out. Lakewood is down at the Stanford meet in Cail. this weekend. They won it the last time they ran there. Good luck running today and enjoy your trip. As for league meets we will see who come out on top at the conference final meet. Atm does have 1 good runner that will run fast any time he runs.
Nobody's saying Archbishop Murphy is going to beat Lakewood at Conference or Districts, but I guarantee you that the Thursday meet did a lot for the boys' confidence. Still it didn't matter as much as the Whidbey Invite where they trounced King's. Then again, that really doesn't matter either because King's competes at a 1A level.
Not being a XC guy, I am not sure about this, but don't most coaches train their kids to peak at state? If a meet falls on a day where the kid is running a workout rather than all out would show slower times.
