Based on what events people ran last year
Should be an interesting race. Last year had 6 seniors score and then a bunch of 2:00+. I'm sure some freshman will fill in but for Now I'd say
2. Evan Hatton
3. Karl Wachter
4. Nolan Ebner
5. Sam Jewson
Dark Horse: Fernando Benitez (HAM) - Coming off a great Cross country season, has potential to take the next step this winter
Fight for second in the mile. Olaf will have depth and Henshel should be back to his former self so they will score 3+ runners.
2. Jack Henshel
3. Alec Kirtley
4. Austin O'Hare
5. Cameron Meikle
Dark Horse: Chris Boranian (MAC) - Another runner who made major strides over the course of the cross country season. Also finished very high in the 1500 during outdoor
Lot of opportunity in this event. Olaf will have some guys in it and O'Hare and Rosenau are top returners from steeple last year with strong finishes in Cross.
1. Keith Ketola
2. William Anderson
3. Austin O'Hare
4. Parker Rosenau
5. Tramayne Collins
Dark Horse: Alex Berhe (STO) He didn't impress (or finish) in his Cross country stint, but if he is running he could win
1. Thomas Lerdall
2. Keith Ketola
3. Matthew Burgstahler
4. Paul Timm
5. Tris Dodge
Dark Horse: Tyler Bethke (BU) - Stepped up as the top runner for Bethel this fall.
Carleton and St Olaf should have enough turnover to stay at the top. After that idk but St Thomas is returning everyone and Bethel and St Johns will probably always do well in this event. Probably a crap shoot but oh well.
3. St Thomas
5. St Johns
Freshman that will probably score somewhere - Matt Wilkinson, Lucas Mueller, Andrew Stumbo, Frank Gustafson, Ezekiel Lelinga
