The Five Boys Storylines To Watch For at DNIP 2022

Penultimate 3200m thoughts-

-The winner of this section may not produce the overall winner but it is going to be very exciting and could feel like a stranded boatsman in the middle of a piranha-infested Amazon River. Camyn Viger (So., Plainfield South), Hunter Whitney (Jr., Chicago Lane Tech), Yusuf Baig (Sr., Burlington Central), and Joe Schwartz (Jr., Waterloo) are all-state cross country runners across two classifications. Sean Safford (Sr., Hersey) and Nolan Rogers (Sr., Lincoln-Way East) have been high-level performers.

Dylan Maloney (Fr., Plainfield South) has the top seed at 9:28.98, and shows no fear against older and more experienced peers. The talent to break 9:20 is within the winner and several pursuers. 

Also, there is a good collection of fringe talent Sam Berlinghof (So., Chicago Jones), Mac Kittrell (Jr., Chicago Depaul Prep), and more that we surely have left out. But the point is don't blink or turn your eye away from this section because you might miss something special.
