State Meet Preview
Today, the Tigers will race at the Lexington Horse Park to compete for the 3-A state title. The Tigers should win with dominating fashion as they are currently ranked 12th in the nation by milesplit.com and first in the southeast region. The Tigers toughest competition should once again be Manual’s Yared Nuguse, who won the regional race 3-AAA regional race last week, and Tates Creek’s Alex Mortimer who both currently hold the best two times in the state, respectively.
“We’ll be chasing Yared Nuguse and Alex Mortimer,” says senior Ryan Guenthner. “I know we’d love to beat them, but I think as long as we’re chasing them and we run our race we should be fine. As long as we get the team win we’ll be happy .”
The Tigers will be looking to win their second championship in a row and four in the past five years.
