Which prospect is more appealing to a college coach? Runner A: 800m 2:11-2:13, 1600m low 4:50’s, 5k 18:15. Runner B: 800m 2:17-2:18, 1600 around 5:00, 5k 17:30. Are coaches more interested in the speed of runner A that can potentially develop better endurance over time or the better endurance runner that can adjust to the 6k more easily. Assume similar xc course and same age.
