In this week's edition of Colorado Future Stars we'll be taking a look at recent sophomore performances. 

Colorado, meet Ben Lee!

The ThunderRidge sophomore finished second in the 1,600 at The Pomona Invitational in a sophomore class-lead of 4:16.56. 

The time is also currently No. 3 in all-classifications and grades. 

Lee has also run 1:56.18 in his first attempt at 800 this season, which is No. 4 in 5A.

Last fall he finished 40th at the 5A Colorado State Cross Country Championships, and ran a season-personal best of 15:23 at the Desert Twilight XC Invite

Perhaps his most revealing performance to date came when he ran 1:53.30 in the 800 at the Continental League Championship as a freshmen last Spring.
