Region 3 Preview

As I said earlier in the year, “It’s Caledonia and West Ottawa’s world, we’re just living in it”.

Where: Portage West MS, Portage

The Course: Once again, a fairly fair course. Got a little grief a few weeks ago for rating it a bit slow even though it ran faster than previous years. Minor hill, wide sweeping turns, and about as efficient a meet management you’ll find.

What to Watch For: West Ottawa and Caledonia vs. The Field. Seriously, if you score it like a dual, I think West Ottawa or Caledonia would win.

Minor subplot I like: Portage Central’s boys are hilarious in their trash talk. Can they put a dent into Caledonia’s dominance?

St. Joseph’s girls have been a bit of a surprise this year, aided by freshman Elena Figueroa. But the other teams are coming in hot, especially a Portage Central squad motivated by last year’s narrow miss.

Jonas Fraley-Burgett’s return. Is it enough to push Kalamazoo Central over the top? It was during the SMAC Championship, where they knocked off Lakeview and Portage Central.

Have I mentioned that I hate it when we match?
