Narrows League cross country coaches are producing weekly updates this season. Here’s the first installment:

7 September 2011
Bellarmine Invite
The pre-season No. 1-ranked Bellarmine Lion girls face off with the defending state champions and second-ranked Eisenhower Cadets Saturday at the 13th Annual Bellarmine Invite. The varsity girls race at 11:40 am. Top individuals to watch: Mayra Chavez, Eisenhower; Daryl Phill, Bellarmine Prep, Lily Engelbrekt, Bishop Blanchet, and Jordan McPhee, Mt. Rainier

On the boys’ side, No. 11 Bellarmine, led by Ian Staeheli, No. 13 Puyallup, led by Brett Bertrand, and Central Kitsap, led by Michael Thorsen, will try to close the gap on No. 1-ranked Eisenhower, who is led by Santos Vargas.

Capital Invite
The No. 2 ranked Gig Harbor Tides boys will race at the Capital Invite, which is shaping up to be a showdown with No. 6 Auburn Riverside and No. 10 Jackson. The individual race should be full of early season fireworks with Gig Harbor’s Will Drinkwater taking on Korey Krotzer of Auburn Riverside and Blake Nelson of Jackson in the senior boys’ race.

The Stadium, Olympia, Gig Harbor, Shelton, Lincoln and Timberline will be racing on the girls’ side in an early season battle for Narrows League No. 2.

In other news, South Kitsap will begin its season at the Tahoma Relays. Foss, Mt. Tahoma, Wilson, and Yelm will not be in action this weekend.
