12 Boys To Watch In The Heartland Region

Elijah Devries, Arrowhead (WI)

With the meet appearing to come down to a battle between the best that Minnesota and Wisconsin have to offer, Elijah Devries will be another runner to watch at regionals. He recently finished 4th at the WIAA State Meet with a time of 15:43 and finished 1st at Sections just a week before that with a time of 16:06. He PR'ed back in September at the Midwest Invite with a time of 15:30, only finishing behind Bosley, Ellenberg, and Meinke. Devries didn't run at NXR last year but back in 2016 he ran a 16:10 at the course, which was at the time a big PR for him.
