Ten Class A Boys Gunning For The Win In 2018

Mitch Johnstone is another guy who competes for a highly respected program in Mankato-Loyola. Johnstone had an excellent Cross Country season last fall, running his PR of 16:33 at the State course to finish 17th. Just like Emmet Anderson, Johnstone is another guy improves as the distance increases, as shown by his PR's of 4:55, 10:09, and then 16:33, which is great news when it comes to XC season. Johnstone will be the leader of a Mankato Loyola team that is returning from a remarkable season in 2017, going undefeated as a team until taking third place in the State Meet, so just as much as he would love getting near the top of the podium individually, he would love getting his team back there too.
