The skinny: This mid-week invitational is expected to be classic, especially on the girls with the top four teams in the state meeting up. While it is rare to contest a cross country meet at night, it has become more vogue in recent times. The Detweiller at Dark meet has been a staple in Peoria in July over the past several years. The Nike North side/South side meet has moved from the Chicago Marathon day to a twilight to mirror the Naperville meet. The weather is expected to be idea at game time with the climes in the lower 60s and a light wind. All in all it should be a fun adventure for all involved.
