Cherry Creek's Parker Wolfe tops the list of athletes.

We've got two big meets on tap this weekend, and one of them is the Dave Sanders Invitational. On paper this one is already shaping up to be a real burner.

Both sides of the competition, boys and girls, looks to be one of the most competitive meets of the weekend. In other words: Mountain Vista will be racing. Anytime Vista Nation shows up, you know you'll be entertained. 

On the boy's side of the competition Cherry Creek sophomore Parker Wolfe tops the list in terms of personal bests. He's been putting together a stellar season so far, though he'll have his hands full with Dakota Ridge's Austin Vancil

Vancil did not race at Liberty Bell, so in terms of PRs, he may be the favorite, even if the black and white numerals of season bests don't say so. The senior has raced three times this season, winning two. He'll likely challenge for the win here, and he won't be alone. 

Mountain Vista's Brody Dempsey, and Rangeview's Luke Sundberg were both in the hunt for a win at Liberty Bell before that wild kick, and this race looks eerily similar, minus Niwot. 

And then there's the Heritage duo of Ian Kelly and Cory Kennedy. As a squad Heritage has quietly been moving up the ranks in recent weeks, and Kelly and Kennedy have been a big part of that. 

Eight enter the meet with sub 16 season bests to their name, making this race already exciting. 

And we're just talking about individuals. 

The team competition includes the top-three teams in 5A, led by Mountain Vista. The question will be if Dakota Ridge or Heritage can make any gains on Vista Nation. 

We'll know Friday night.

Until then, here's a virtual look at what the meet looks like on paper
