Wyoming Valley Conference cross country takes center stage Wednesday with its final full day of regular-season competition.
Some teams will still need to make up meets, but the day’s results could ultimately determine the girls champion and could help begin to sort out a tight boys race where five teams have one loss each.
The last two unbeaten girls teams face each other during a cluster meet at Hazleton Area.
Holy Redeemer is 13-0 and Crestwood is 10-0. Each team will face two other opponents.
The meet is the last for Holy Redeemer, which could take the title with a sweep of Crestwood, Hazleton Area and MMI Prep. Hazleton Area is 9-1 and also presents a potential challenge.
Crestwood is also facing Hanover Area and Nanticoke. It still has to make up meets against Berwick, Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech and Northwest, which will be scored during next week’s conference meet.
The boys list of once-beaten teams will be reduced by at least two.
Crestwood and Holy Redeemer, part of the three-way tie for the lead at 9-1, face each other at Hazleton Area.
Berwick (8-1) hosts Lake-Lehman (9-1).
The 6-sport, 33-event schedule includes first-place Wyoming Seminary (9-0 in the division, 12-1 overall) traveling to face one of the teams tied for third in Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1 field hockey when it plays at Lake-Lehman (7-2, 10-3).
Delaware Valley (11-0, 13-0) is at Dallas (3-2, 4-2) in WVC girls volleyball. Dallas returned from a 16-day layoff to post an impressive, five-set win over Crestwood Monday.
Third-place North Pocono (8-4, 9-7) is at second-place Dunmore (10-2) in Lackawanna League Division 1 girls volleyball where Western Wayne has already clinched the title and Dunmore already has second place locked up.
There are also boys and girls soccer games on the schedule.
