This weekend’s Clovis Invitational, run on the California State Meet Course at Woodward Park, is always a strong meet, with half of the state’s ranked XC teams taking part, including eights SGV schools. At least ine local schools will run at the Central Park Invitational, another strong meet run over a hilly course in Huntington Beach.
Clovis Invitational – Woodward Park, Fresno
The Arcadia and La Serna boys, along with Audrey Suarez (So, Mayfield) and Joyce Wu (Sr, Arcadia) will contest the big Sweepstakes Race – which will bring together many of the State’s top teams, regardless of division, in one race. Both of the boys teams will be aiming for top 10 finishes and both have ambitions to return here for the State meet.
The rest of the SGV teams will compete in one of the four divisional races. State ranked Flintridge Prep will be looking for a podium in both the boys and girls Small Schools race, as will the South Pasadena boys and the Bishop Amat girls. Likely CIF-SS finalists Rowland and Whittier will be competing in the Large School race.
