6A State Meet Preview

GIRLS INDIVIDUAL

** Race to Watch**


The 6A girls race is by far the most interesting race of the day. On the individual side, there are a handful of girls who could win this race. Lainey Quandt of Bentonville has the fastest legit time of the year running an incredible 18:36 on the Chile Pepper course. Hailey Day of Rogers has been fighting illness this season but bounced back with a fast 18:26 on a short Huntsville course. Anna Jeffcoat and defending state champ Ali Nachtigal from Rogers just went 1-2 at the Mountie Classic finishing just in front of Quandt(3rd) and Day(4th). 

The word on the street is the course will be very muddy tomorrow, so this race will come down to wants it the most and who is the strongest Mudder. Chile Pepper was muddy and the state meet course is muddy.  Arkansas MileSplit is going with....? Find us on the course for our pick.

GIRL TEAM 

Since 2003, only two other schools (Fayetteville 2013, 2017 & Heritage 2012) have won the state title away from Bentonville or Rogers. These two powerhouses in XC finished the Mountie Classic just 10 days ago in a tie that was broken by Rogers' 6th runner. This team race tomorrow will literally come down to both teams 5th and maybe 6th runners. Throw in a couple of top runners from the 6A central conference and his race gets even more interesting!

Arkansas MileSplit is going with the team with the stronger 5th....Bentonville FTW
