The high school season is fast approaching the conference, invitational and major regional and state meets. Here is week numero quatro for high school cross country, from the man who kind of invented cross country (taken in same context of Al Gore inventing the internet), Walt Murphy. Really means that he does a lot for cross country, if one was not to take what I just wrote in a literal fashion, which is hard to determine.
The big news on the high school front is that Edward Cheserek, the #1 prep distance runner in the U.S., will make his 2012 x-country debut on Saturday at the Manhattan College Inv. at New York’s Van Cortlandt Park.
Cheserek became the first prep in history to break 12-minutes on the venerable course at “Vanny” when he ran 11:55.4 at last year’s Manhattan meet.
