Matysik is fresh off a third place showing at the FLRunners.com Invitational Race of Champions and is the only in the field under 19 minutes with 3A Cross Country Finals runner-up Valerie Lastra and 8th grader Sydnee Calder the only two under 20 minutes. Oxbridge Academy and Park Vista are the top two teams in the field.
On the boy's side, this will be the third meet of the season for Cavan Wilson. Wilson was the runner-up at the 3A/4A race at the Spanish River Invitational. Austin Redondo and Hunter Dobbs of Coral Reef are entered, but their team is also entered in the field at Pre-State. Owen Allen of Key West and Colin Wilson of Coral Gables have both run under 17 minutes. Lastly, don't count out Isaias De La Puente who was runner-up at the state meet. Should Coral Reef not be there look for Coral Park and Coral Gables, the other Coral teams to battle for best of the 305.
