Joel Nyatusah is the top returner in the 110 hurdles.
In the sprints there appears to be a two-way battle for dominance between Elijah Williams and Marcus Miller. Williams is the top returner in the 100 and the 200. He placed second in the 200 two weeks ago, so it's likely he'll be wanting to take that final step up to the top of the podium next year. And if there's anyone who can keep pace, it'll be Miller. He's the No. 2 returner in both events. Miller's best chance for a state title may in the 400, however, as he is the top returner, just ahead of Williams.
The 800 is where things are slightly up in the air. David Cardenas is the top returner, but he'll have his hands full with Tesamichael Wolde. Both ran 1:56 at the state meet, with Cardenas four-hundredths of a second ahead.
The distance events are where we'll see Valor Christian's presence, as 4A state champ Cole Sprout is the clear favorite in the 1,600 and the 3,200. Sprout is the the 3,200 Colorado record holder with a 9:01. If there's anyone who'll be able to keep pace with him, it'll be Easton Allred, who will likely be donning the green of Mountain Vista next year. Both are juniors, and could make for some exciting races in the next two years.
