Wellesley is among the favorites in the boys' Championship race at Ocean State.
One of the premier events in the northeast region (and beyond) will be held this weekend with the Ocean State Cross-Country Invitational at Goddard State Park in Warwick, R.I., a two-day meet that will feature middle school and high school races. A total of 84 girls' teams and 88 boys' teams will answer the gun for Saturday's HS races. The middle-schoolers will compete on Friday.
Schedule to compete are schools from the host state as well as Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Virginia and Colorado.
