Overview: It's a big underclassmen battle at the front of Varsity Race B. Noah Tindale is dropping down from Easterns after finishing 17th there, while Andrew Avila was the top Freshman finisher last year in the merge. After Avila had a strong showing at Great American, the race is wide open between the pair. Not to be left out is Maazin Ahmed, who might have the quickest track speed of the bunch. Tindale will lead the team scoring as well, but Nashua North is a balanced team, which could overthrow the favorites.
