But, like a Ronco commercial, we didn't stop there. Wednesday also featured the biggest cross country meet of the young GSL season, with the nation's No. 1 boys team, Mead, competing against the No. 4, three-time state champ Ferris, and young North Central. Ferris' David Hickerson ran away with the top spot, the Panthers took the next three places, but the Saxons finished with six in the top 10 to win 27-29. It was just the first of four big showdowns between the schools en route to the state championship. One note that didn't appear in the paper: Mead ran without Taylor Nepon, the Panthers top runner who is just now returning from injury.
UPDATE: Mike has added some more observations about Wednesday's meet on his blog.
On the Idaho side, the main feature was about the eight seniors on the Coeur d'Alene girls soccer team.
