Ben Conlin didn't run at the middle school state meet in 2016, but that didn't prevent him from becoming the top freshman at State this fall. File photo.
Shown below are the top 50 freshman boys, by time, from this year's state meet. It will be interesting to follow these careers through high school. For those who also competed in last year's middle school state meet (course distance = 3500 meters), those times are shown in the right-hand column. Just under a third of these individuals did compete in last year's middle school state meet.
