Bubble: Governor Mifflin, Red Land, Wilson, Exeter

Notes: Twin Valley takes over the #1 spot following their dominant performance at the William Tennant Invite. All 6 runners for Twin Valley went sub 17 min. The team was led by senior Dylan Servis who placed 3rd overall. Manheim Township placed 3rd at the William Tennant Invite and were led by senior’s Evan Dorenkamp and Ian Miller who placed 1st and 2nd overall in 16:07 and 16:12 respectively. Carlisle competed at the Salesianum Invite in Delaware against the host school and lost. Tough to make a call on this since it basically ran as a dual meet. Hershey, Chambersburg, and Cumberland Valley all competed at the Gettysburg Invitational. Hershey beat Chambersburg by 5 to take the team title. Cumberland Valley was 3rd. Twin Valley and Carlisle appear to be positioning themselves as the favorites for the district 3 title. Cedar Crest has made the strongest argument to take the 3rd spot; however, very little seems to separate them from the next 5 places.

Bubble: Cumberland Valley, Hempfield, Warwick

Notes: Cumberland Valley won the Gettysburg Invitational with 126 points. They were led by two freshman, Kate Vonah and Jacqueline Reninger who both finished inside the top 10. Hershey placed 2nd at the Gettysburg Invite, however their number 1 runner for the year, Katie Jones, did not compete. Carlisle bested two other teams at the Salesianum Invite in Delaware. Sophia Toti from Carlisle won by 50 seconds in a race featuring only 20 athletes. Only a few Manheim Township athletes competed at William Tennant with sophomore Chloe Kline finishing 10th individually. They did not field a complete team for this invitational. Cumberland Valley is probably deserving of a top 10 rank, but with so few teams competing this week it is difficult to move anyone down. This is shaping up to be a very competitive race at Districts.
