Aspen's Sunday Abarca should be a force to contend with in 3A sprinting for the next three years. Colorado Track XC file photo.

With the outdoor track season nearly complete, it's time to take a quick look at who the most promising freshmen of 2014 are. You will note some impressive recurrences of certain athletes here if you scroll through all of the events and read carefully through the names of each event's top ten. There seems to be a particular propensity for the boys in the 800 meters top ten to show up in other events as well. In any case, here's how this year's freshman rankings break down on an event-by-event basis:
