The Classical Academy's Mason Norman looks on track to defend his state title.

Like most classifications, it's a tale of two lists...

Those who raced at Liberty Bell, and those who didn't. So we take two long glances at the lists of PRs from the first half of the season...

On paper Peak to Peak looks in the prime position to take the individual and the team title - but we'll get to the team competition on the next page.

In the individual race there are still a lot of questions to be answered over the next month. Currently Peak to Peak's William Ledden has the fastest time in the state. His 15:59 from Liberty Bell is the lone sub 16 clocking, and it's his only 5k of the season. 

If the Classical Academy's Mason Norman wasn't the defending state champion, or have a laundry list of accolades top his name, his 16:01 season best from Eagle Valley may have flown under the radar. He's raced twice this season, and won both races. Even though he's got the second fastest season best as of September 25, I'd say he's currently the favorite to take next month's state title.

And if there's a dark horse, it's coming from the western slope. Gunnison's Colton Stice has raced four times this season, winning three. Perhaps the most revealing performance was the race he didn't win - the Mountaineer/Cowboy Invite. A year ago he ran 17:22 on the same course, and went on to finish eighth at State. This year he ran 16:32. Clearly, he's on another level.

And there's Holy Family's Christian Montoya, who has been on an upward spiral of improvement all season long. After opening his season in 17:40, he's made massive drops of time each week. He's gone 17:08 - 16:31 (at Liberty Bell), and perhaps his most revealing performance was his 16:23 win in the Division 2 race at Dave Sanders. It's rare for anyone to run faster than their Liberty Bell performance, but Montoya has been keeping with his own trend of improving each time he races.
