Congrats to the 9 boys that made it to the state meet. All of the athletes ran very well at their Regional Meets and this sets up as possibly one of the deepest fields ever. Here is my breakdown and what I think will happen at the state meet. . . . SEE COMPLETE REGION RESULTS
1. REED BROWN – Southlake Carroll – Senior
Reed is coming off a great Region 1-6A meet where he held off both Alex Maier and Daniel Bernal to win in a Regional Meet Record of 8:51. He is the defending state champion in this event and has a great chance to break his state meet record of 8:50.43 he set last year in an epic dual with Sam Worley who is not running this event this year as he chose to do the hard 800-1600 double but more on that decision later. This race sets up nicely for Reed to run a fast time with Alex Maier pushing the pace and Reed has the speed to win it late. He could win in a fast pace or slow pace. My guess is that he goes out hard early.
PREDICTION- 1st 8:46
