The second week of the 2008 Cross Country Season had some great performances! We did not get all of the results until late in the week so this weeks top performances are a little late but we did not want to leave it out! REAL MEN WEAR PINK!

It was blistering hot at the May 24th Meet of Champions......no wait.....it was in the 70's and the weather was perfect. It's hard to believe it was May in Arizona and hot chocolate was selling faster than ice cream. Spectators were wearing jackets or wrapped in blankets and the runners were enjoying another unusually cool day at the track. The Meet of Champions is a race where the State Champions and top runners from each division come together and race for one title. Some State Champions finish their season at the State Meet but others come to compete. To see videos of the Meet of Champions (click here) To see the complete article click on the title.
