10. William Hauenstein (Jr., Wheaton-Warrenville South) 
It's great to see Hauenstein's improvement from sophomore year, but it took a bit to get there. Most of the year I was worried for the Tigers as they were heavily relying on Hauenstein to be a top runner in the state, and honestly, for the first part of the season, he didn't look capable of doing that. He ran consistently at state maintaining a great position for the entirety of the race and it showed with his 8th place finish with a 14:30.
