Boys CO ’17 Distance Rankings

  1. Eric Coston (St. Paul’s)-  No doubt about the king of XC being first.  He did meet his match indoors in the 800, but not before getting himself gold in the 1600.
  2. Cameron Farris (Pineville)- Beating Coston, no matter what the distance, is noteworthy. Farris had to drop a 1:55 indoors to do it but he ends up our 800 D1 champion.
  3. Michael Brown (Newman)- Michael isn’t a huge name in XC where he finished 7th in a strong 2A field but he has a 1:58 indoor PR and a state title to go along with his 4:25 at Last Chance and a 10:02 runner-up in the D2 3200.
  4. Kasey Tinnerello (West Monroe)- Finished 5th in 5A XC as well as dropping a 15:16 bomb at regionals which is buoying him over the rest but will need a strong finish in outdoor to maintain the spot.  He does not compete during indoor season.
  5. Reed Meric (Jesuit)- Finished XC with a solid 15:46 and 13th place finish at state, but the 800 is his main event which he finished 4th in the D1 race at 2:00.  This was Reed’s first appearance in an open indoor state event so things bode well for the 1:56 runner in the spring.
  6. Randy Carter (Jehovah Jireh)- Carter ran 15:45 at Highland and won state over Alex Lewis. Carter finished indoor with indoor with a pair of runner-up spots at state and 4:31 and 2:00.
  7. Alex Landry (St. Michael)- The 4A state runner-up finished the year with a 15:45 at Highland.
  8. Andre Bellard (Lafayette)- A newcomer to this list because of a strong indoor finish, Bellard finished XC in 16th place in 5A and was 4th in the D1 3200.  
  9. Kris Jackson (Episcopal)- Jackson was 3rd at state meet in XC in 2A and finished the indoor season with a 4th place finish in the D2 3200.
  10. Cameron Rogers (Parkway)- Cameron was 8th in 5A XC, ran 15:33 at regionals, and finished the indoor season with a PR of 10:22.
