A beautiful grove of pecan trees provided an ideal setting for the 33rd Annual Westover Invitational. Heavy storms the night before moved out to leave clear skies for a record number of enthusiastic runners. Comprised of forty-six Varsity Teams and fourteen Middle School Teams, the competitors gathered at the start to test the newly designed, relatively fast course at Robert Cross Middle School in Albany, GA.

The Westover Invitational enters its 33rd Year with another large field of teams making the trip to Albany. There have been some changes to the course that has allowed runners to produce PR times over the years. With the City of Albany selling part of the property last spring, the course has now been completely redone. Saturday's meet will determine how fast this new course will be as 46 high schools and 14 middle school teams will take their shot at winning the 33rd Annual event.
In an effort to 'catch up' for not publishing a MS 'Runner of the Week' we are going to select Co-Runners of the Week for the past 2 weeks of competition to try avoiding overlooking anyone deserving of the honor. Athletes in BOLD print are Ga.MileSplit's selections with MS State looming only 9 days away ending Georgia's MS season. However, their will be the USATF GA Youth/Midget races as well as AAU and don't forget Foot Locker South's 3000 Meter race which is always a great way to end a season of racing. For the Boys, Caleb Harris of Bainbridge MS and Nikolas Rowlands of Bonaire are selected after an epic battle at Westover.
Westover had to change the whole course layout for the Westover Meet at Robert Cross Middle School. The City of Albany went and sold the parcel of land where most of the course was ran in. A deal was negotiated with the new owner but only allowed one trail is through the property. Attached is the map of the new course
