Dylan Schubert is one big reason the future looks promising for Thompson Valley track and field.
4A Boys was the domain of Vista Ridge and Air Academy this spring, but what does the future look like for these two programs?
In terms of this year's freshman class, top honors for the season just completed go to Palmer Ridge, followed in succession by Pine Creek, Eagle Valley, Thompson Valley, and Harrison. And, it's worth noting that Pine Creek's top freshman distance threat--at least as judged by cross country performances--had to sit the season out due to injury. So, Pine Creek is likely sitting in a better position that we might first guess. All the more so as we ponder the prospects for sprinter David Moore.
Palmer Ridge, however, still figures at the top of the pile. And, it's not just Alex Murphy--someone the distance folks are already familiar with. Deuce Roberson, Aleksandr Solano, Brian McCarthy, and Nathan Lemke all check in as ones to watch as well.
Harrison, of course, boasts Tyrese Van Horne who skipped being a prospect and went directly to being a thing in 4A Boys sprints.
Thompson Valley boasts a strong freshman class from this sprint, led by distance type Dylan Schubert and hurdler Nathan Rice.
Eagle Valley figures to be a major force going forward in the pole vault with Holden Daniels and Ethan Daubs, though high jumper Matthew Turner could be turning a few more heads down the road as well.
Enjoy the journey of the next few years. And, here is what this year's virtual meet of 4A freshman boys looks like:
