Hard to believe but this weekend marks one month until Region meets are contested. Personally, going into the season, I thought we would have a clearer picture of the Cross Country landscape at this point as compared to years past. With most of the larger out of state meets that typically attract some of the best programs from Tennessee being cancelled or limited to in state competitors only, I assumed we would get more in-state match ups week in and week out of some of the premiere programs and runners. However, in turn, most of the larger meets within the state were cancelled or reduced in size as well. Nevertheless, I'll try to project and predict based on my observations so far.
