Paxton Smith and Tyler Matzke get most of the ink, but it's guys like Addison Hellier who keep the Mountain Vista team score low. Photo by Alan Versaw.

In a battle between two US top 15 ranked teams from the state of Colorado, the US #11 ranked squad Cherry Creek (33 pts) upset the US #4 ranked Fort Collins (52 pts) in Cherry Creek's home invitational meet on Friday. Fort Collins was racing without their #2 runner Devyn Miller (out due to illness), but Cherry Creek was actually missing their #1 runner in Jordyn Colter (on a recruting trip), so with both teams having 6 of their top 7 on Friday, Cherry Creek still looks like they would have been the better team on this day regardless.
