Victor Ashe Fall Classic
We're going to get some crossover this weekend between
middle and east Tennessee with Independence and Mt. Juliet going to Victor
Ashe. The results between how their teams stack up against the likes of Hardin Valley
and Girls Prep should give us some baseline for how to rank teams moving
forward through transitive comparisons. Here is some of what we'll be looking
for beyond that this weekend.
- Is Andie-Marie Jones back to fall 2020 form?
- How high will Bearden's Freshman Cade Crum finish in his 5k debut?
- Does Girl's Prep look ready to defend their title?
- Will the Hardin Valley Boys get a perfect score?
As for that last one, one of the runners that may spoil the perfect score is Alcoa's Abdul Jaber. The Small Division I 6th place finisher won the Panther Creek Invitational last week and is looking to improve on that finish in the new AA/A classification. He sat down with us this week to help preview the meet this weekend.
Alcoa's Abdul Jaber got 3rd, 6th, and 3rd and secured 15 points for the Tornadoes in May to help them win the Small Division I State Track and Field Team Championship.
