New York, New York!! Manhattan was just as exciting on the boys side as three elite harriers battled to the finish. US #14 Tony Russell (West Chester Henderson PA), who was first at NXN Northeast last year, won with strong finish in a time of 12:20, good for #13 all-time on the storied course. #16 Bryce Millar (Fayetteville-Manlius NY) gave him a run for his money and finished 2nd in 12:21.1 while #18 Mickey Burke (Rush-Henrietta NY) finished 3rd in 12:23.8.
US#1 Blake Haney (Stockdale CA) continues to take on all-comers, this time over-coming super-soph Austin Tamagno (Brea Olinda CA), who set a soph league record, 15:01 to 15:07 at the Clovis Invitational in California.
At the Richland Invitational US#2 Joe Hardy (Seattle Prep WA) won over a DEEP field in 14:47.66 with US#10 John Dressel (Mt. Spokane WA) 2nd in 14:49.59. US#13 Kai Wilmot (North Central WA) was 3rd in 14:51.65 with teammate Tanner Anderson 4th in 14:54.27.
Sukhi Khosla makes his debut at #25 in the rankings with a 14:59 win at the FSU Invitational where Andres Arroyo ran 15:19.8 last year! Sukhi won very controlled and it was a deep race too, with the top-6 under 15:08.5!
Note: We will have a watch list on the rankings continuing through the season, as 25 is a very hard number to crack into.
Stay tuned each week as we bring you the Saucony Elite 50 Individual Boys every Tuesday morning!
