Could it be a year that Mountain Brook wins the boys? Mountain Brook did well with a young team last year and you know what that means.....this year they are older...and faster. To be clear, Mountain Brook, Oak Mountain, and Auburn all return team averages around 16:30. What makes Mountain Brook so strong? They have a 13 second split between their 1st and 5th runner. It's like a knockout punch at the finish line.
Auburn graduated some of their strength last year but return Paul Barlow who took the top spot individually last year and had a strong outdoor season. Auburn will face tough competition from Cole Stidfole and Oak Mountain High School. The two teams look identical on paper each with a strong front runner.
The above three teams will face off early on at the Montevallo Early Bird Invitational.
