Night Meet Preview

Night Meet - August 25

Wilsonville High School - Wilsonville, OR



Oregon’s cross-country season opens this week and a popular meet is the Night Meet held at Wilsonville High School near Portland, OR. The meet is organized by grade level, has a distance of 3000-meters and is known for a fast course as it starts and finishes on the track with the middle part of the course run on field turf.


Since it is an early season meet, some of the entries may change. Below are athletes to look for at the Night Meet.


Girls


Ana Peters of Lake Oswego

The Night Meet can be the debut of top-level Oregon girl athletes in the freshman race. In the sophomore race, Avery Meier of West Salem, Elissa Schaeffer of Sunset and Madison Zemper-Prill of South Eugene are athletes to watch. Ana Peters of Lake Oswego is the defending 6A Oregon Cross Country State Champion and leads the junior race. Amelia Campbell of Grant, Sophia Malinoski of Lincoln and Kailua Balazs of Sunset are other top junior athletes.

Keira Saavedra of Lincoln is listed in the senior race and ran last fall at NXN. Ella McGillis of Central Catholic, Josie Fale of Ida B Wells and Sabine Kim of Tigard are other strong seniors at the Night Meet.
