12 Boys To Watch In The Heartland Region

Rowen Ellenberg, Kimberly (WI)

Rowen Ellenberg, another senior from Wisconsin, has been having a solid XC season and looks to be another top finisher at NXR this year, having only lost to Bosley so far this year. Last year at Regionals, he ran a 15:13 for an 8th place finish at Yankton Trail Park. He started off the season with a 16:31 first-place finish at the Terror Invite and dramatically improved his times throughout the rest of the season with all sub 16-minute finishes. He finished 2nd behind Bosley at the Midwest Invitational with a time of 15:02 back in September and he also finished second at the WIAA State meet with a finish of 15:30. Ellenberg will be one to watch on Sunday to see if he can give Bosley a run for his money.
