2019 MileSplit50 Individual Boys XC Rankings Countdown

School: Dakota Ridge, CO

Year: Class of 2020

Notable Finishes: 

Analysis: During the 2018 cross-country season, Connor Ohlson helped his team to not only make it to nationals but finish third overall. The rising senior finished second at the Class 5A Colorado State Cross Country Championships, fourth at the Nike Cross Nationals Southwest Regional, and then 10th at Nike Cross Nationals. Throughout that three-race stretch, he had some impressive speed ratings of 188 at state, 190 at NXRSW, and 196 at NXN. Ohlson will be the key frontman on the Dakota Ridge team since his teammate Austin Vancil graduated in 2019. Ohlson will have a strong group of guys behind him in 2019, as well, since Vancil was the only one of the Dakota Ridges top five to graduate. On the track this past spring Ohlson was third at the Colorado State Track and Field Championships 1600m, running a PR of 4:17.06, and second in the 800m in 1:54.69. He has both the speed an endurance to make an impact on this year's cross-country rankings.
