Adugna Moritz, who dominated last year's middle school state meet, is off to Michigan, but there are plenty of other guys from the top 20 8th graders who are making noise in the high school ranks this year.
The top 20 boys at last year's middle school state meet doesn't necessarily correspond to the top 20 8th grade boys last year, but it's as close as we're likely to get to an objective measure. So, we'll use it.
In the table below, you will find the top 20 8th grade boys from last year's state meet listed and ranked by time. Then, on the pages that follow, we'll do brief bios on each of those 20 boys and the current status of their cross country careers.
In those bios, I'm using the most current available photo of reasonable quality I have of each of the boys--if I have one at all. You are welcome to submit more current photos of a reasonable quality if you have them for an updated image. Please give me crediting information if you do that.
