12 Boys To Watch In The Heartland Region

Andrew Brandt, Wayzata (MN)

Andrew Brandt of Minnesota will also likely finish in the top five at Regionals to continue his strong cross-country season this year. It has been a massive breakout season for the senior, as throughout the season he has improved his time in every race, ending with a PR of 15:15 and a 2nd place finish at the MSHSL State Meet, just over a second behind Iverson. But even if Brandt does not make it as an individual, he'll have an excellent chance to qualify as a member of his team, as Wayzata has qualified for NXN six consecutive years.
