Addison Stansbury, Stillwater (MN)
Another Minnesotan to keep an eye on, and someone who could also potentially be a top five finisher is Addison Stansbury. One of Minnesota's top runners all season, he had a big breakout race at his Section meet with a time of 15:16 that make him start thinking an NXN individual berth could be possible. He then aggressively set the pace for the State Championships (his first mile was 4:46) and came away with a very fast fourth-place finish of 15:20. Those two races definitely show Stansbury has NXN potential, and it will be very interesting to see if he will try to set the pace again at Heartland like he did at State.
