Ten Class AA Boys Teams Running For Hardware In 2018

Mounds View

Mounds View returns five of their scoring seven runners that helped the team finish fifth at last year's State Meet. Mounds View is led by Austin Streit, who finished 14th at last year's state meet and Lukas Hessini who placed 46th. They will be helped by two juniors Will Sacay and Finn Sokolowski who had impressive jumps during the track season, including Sacay qualifying individually for State in the 3200m. Those top four boys all ran under 10:00 during track in the 3200m. and just recently all four of them run under 15:47 at the Torchlight 5k back on July 18th (with Streit running 15:06). If a fifth runner steps up (perhaps even Elliott Mcarthur, who had the seventh-best 5k time of all 7th-graders in the US last year), Mounds View will be extremely tough to beat come November.
