6. Rory Cavan (Sr., Glen Ellyn [Glenbard West]) 
Cavan is finally starting to return to his old form that he had earlier this season when he was undefeated. He had a sickness that hindered his performance at conference, regionals, and sectionals. Fortunately, he was able to finish 5th with a time of 14:29. We will have to see how he does at NXR after a bounce-back performance at state.
