JASPER - Jasper's cross country invitational is generally a preview of the sectional to be held on the same course two weeks later.
That should be encouraging to Perry Central's boys team, which won the invitational by 48 points over runner-up Heritage Hills Tuesday.
"The guys had a nice meet tonight," said Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett.
Tell City finished fifth in the 10-team meet with 122 points, though the Marksmen ran without their No. 1 runner, Alex Fenn, who is expected to be back for the PAC meet and sectional.
