The Dark Horse: Boys 3A Pre-Season

Eaton sophomore Logan Gullett could be a real threat this fall.

Dark Horse:"A previously less known person or thing that emerges to prominence in a situation, especially in a competition involving multiple rivals."

For the first time in years someone without the last name "Norman" will be crowed as the 3A state cross country champion. 

While top returner Owen Nolan transferred to Mountain Vista, this leaves the title of "top returner" to Josh Medina, who finished third last year.

As mentioned in previous Dark Horse articles...

The lack of an outdoor track season definitely added to the difficulty in deciphering who fits this definition of a "dark horse."

So, to clarify: this list is subjective, and taken from the 2019 cross country season. The criteria used to come up with the following athletes was heavily based on how sharp of a curve a runner had from the beginning of the season to the end of the season.

And bare with me - some drastic leaps cannot be predicted. The following is simply a look as to who could most likely make a big splash on the cross country course this fall.
