top matchups loom in Manhattan
The 33rd Manhattan Invitational in New York City Oct. 8 will have record entries of 11,000 athletes from 365 schools in 18 states and Canada. Some highly anticipated matchups will occur, but there are also some missed opportunities to have top boys teams meet face to face. [John Dye]

Manhattan Girls - As always, the Girls Eastern States race will feature the best teams in one race. This year is one of the best concentrations in recent years. Perennial US#1 Saratoga Springs NY, US#1 this year in the Harrier Super 25 and NE#1 in the Nike Team National rankings, will try to win its 6th straight Manhattan. They may get more serious competition than usual from NE#2 US#11 Hilton NY, NE#3 US#15 Bronxville NY, NE#4 Jackson NJ, NE#7 Suffern NY, NE#10 Bay Shore NY, SE#2 Brentsville VA, SE#6 Eleanor Roosevelt MD, SE#7 Tatnall DE, and SE#9 Midlothian VA. Unranked Warwick Valley NY and Colts Neck NJ bring individual stars Aislinn Ryan, defending Foot Locker national champion and 2-time Great American champion, and Brianna Jackucewicz, now a freshman after several years of national age group competition.

Manhattan Boys - The Manhattan deviated last year from its historic practice of spreading the top teams across seven flights when it paired Fayetteville-Manlius NY and Christian Brothers NJ in the same flight. This will happen again this year as NE#1 US#2 F-M and NE#3 US#5 CBA are matched in flight C and are joined by NE#5 US#9 Morris Hills NJ. But new NE#2 Saratoga Springs NY, winner of the Great American Race of Champions in North Carolina last week, is alone in flight E. Warwick Valley NY, which rose to NE#4 after finishing second at Great American, is in flight F along with SE#8 Brentsville VA. NE#6 Bishop Hendricken RI is alone in flight D
