Like a blind man attempting to envision the whole elephant by touch, mid-season cross country invitationals give us a “peek” at what might be at season’s end, but not entirely so. Thus, while the results of the Boys’ Elite Race may have felt like a trunk, it must be remembered that it is the same basic shape of that pachyderm’s tail. In this race, the two front runners, Eduardo Garcia and Phil Duncan, met for the last time before the State Meet, each trying to ride the elephant, rather than be trampled by it.
