I’d say Bosley is a good bet. He will most likely win the 1600 and 3200, possibly get the 3200 record if that’s what he wants to do, plus he will get a good bit of national exposure. But if you’re looking for a few other names, here you go:
Elijah Johnson (Milwaukee Washington) - Defending D1 state champ in the 100, D1 state runner-up in the 200 last year. I am aware that he is big into club track and will probably come into the season in better shape than last year. I am surprised they don’t throw him in long jump and see what he can do. Don’t know if he is good enough to compete at any national meets, but it’s possible through his club connections.
Andrew Stone (Fond du Lac) - Defending D1 state champ in the shot put, D1 state runner-up in the discus. I don’t know too much about this guy. I’d say it depends what kind of marks he puts up.
Marquez Clerveaux (Rice Lake) - Top returner in D2 for the 100 and 200. Will probably run a relay as well.
Davis Wenthe (G-E-T) - I think last year someone called him the “D2 Cordell Tinch,” 3rd in the D2 110 HH, 7th in D2 high jump, 8th in the D2 400. Impressive for a sophmore, but I think he will need to improve a lot and win some state titles to be considered.
With all due respect, I feel it will be hard for another distance runner other than Bosley to be considered, since you would basically have to top him. Perhaps if Chapman or Vannucchi were to win the distance triple or set a division record or two they would be in the conversation.
