Welcome to the first year of the Nashua North Invitational Meet Hub! This year will be the 9th Annual version of the invite which provides the insight on the Meet of Champions course at Mines Falls. While it features mostly Division 1 schools, the Nashua North has grown to also feature middle school races as well. As with the past couple years, we will be there to cover all the action!
Teams which typcially attend include Concord, Londonderry, Pinkerton, Nashua North, Salem, Merrimack, Alvirne, Bishop Guertin, Hollis/Brookline, and Nashua South. Sprinkle in the occasional Massachusetts school like Groton-Dinstable and the Nashua North Invitational alsways provides some early season dramatics.
On the girls side, based on the 9/10/19 rankings, there are three top ten teams competing. Concord (NH #5) is the highest ranked team competing. Led by Morgane Orcutt, this week’s Athlete Feature, the Crimson Tide will look to take their first invite of the season. They should be challenged by Londonderry (NH #8), who is brand new to the ranked teams and coming off a team win at the Saber Relays. Then you have defending champion Salem (NH #10), who with their solid core of athletes cannot be counted out of repeating!
The boys race boasts four of the state’s Top 10 teams in Concord (#3), Pinkerton (NH #6), Londonderry (NH #7), and Nashua North (NH #8). Concord is the defending champs and currently the highest ranked team, so they seem to be the favorites on paper. But then you have Pinkerton, who just ran strong at Great Glen making Mines Falls feel even faster. Londonderry is coming off a fantastic team win at Freestyle Farms and Saber Relays, while Rory Curran-led Nashua North always seems to drop some great performances on their home course! Looks like it will be a great Saturday for racing!
