  • Big Weekend Produces Certain Shakeup in the Polls

    In what is the first true invitational weekend on the calendar, we in Massachusetts now have a much more defined look at the top teams in the state. On the boys side, top-10's Lowell, Pembroke, Brookline, Shrewsbury, and Westfield were all in action in three different states. On the girls side of things, the top four was idle, but Weston, Newton South, Lincoln-Sudbury, Amherst, Wachusett, Needham, Longmeadow, Concord-Carlisle, Haverhill, Notre Dame, Brookline, and Dennis-Yarmouth all took to the races, all except Weston and L-S at Amherst.

Since it isn’t a dual meet, you can bet that Westfield will be looking to develop its middle pack of 4-5-6 to stay on top of the crowd at Northfield. In 2011, the three juniors were all in the top 8, but big gaps to #4 and #5 left the Bombers 3rd, behind perennial powerhouse Amherst and Ludlow. Amherst graduates its top 5 runners, and while they can never be counted out, are also no longer the favorites. Ludlow loses individual champ Daniel Crowley, but brings back a strong team from its runner-up squad. With potential cracks in the Amherst armor showing, it will be up to those two teams, as well as possibly a Northampton or a Holyoke to dethrone the Western Mass. Powerhouse in 2012.
