Quick overview: What do you expect this time of the season in terms of the weather? It should be cold and windy which should make the course downright nasty as it did last year. The goal is to get to sunny San Diego in two weeks- so throw out any fast times. With the course being slightly altered, there is no chance of official records of time being broken.
Breaking down the races real fast-
This meet will see its usual suspects do its thing along with some surprises earning trips to nationals. MileSplit National talking heads give their take ----> HERE
Boys: How hard will Josh Methner run? The state all-time 3-mile record holder from Hersey IL HS may just do enough to win as he has done on several occasions this season. It is a chess match because of someone like Carter Solomon of Michigan maybe trying to prove he is for real. Solomon is very good but has not competed outside of his borders like last year's national finalist Wolverine Evan Bishop. Michigan usually packs a wallop in Wisconsin. Others such as Jack Spamer and Brendan Favazza are names on the forefront. But then there is Caleb Brown of Ohio who may press things in a "rematch." Indiana state champ Gabriel Sanchez should be an easy choice to represent the Hoosier state. Locally, watch for Jared Kreis (Lincoln-Way Central) and Tyler Cushing (Bolingbrook) to take charge.
