How good is this team: The Saints have been the state and Midwest's top team all season until a slight glitch at the NXN MW Regional. There was no doubt they would earn a trip to Portland because of a stout resume. Two of the Saints top runners: Bob Liking and Micah Wilson competed well at the recent FLMW race- Liking actually earned a trip to San Diego. This is the SCE crew that we need to see in Portland on race day. The scorers have generally been lights out and better than anything we have seen this season except for one race. There will not be two bad races in a row.
