In April, he broke 2 minutes for the first time running 1:56.50 to win the 800-meter run at the Pioneer Invitational and then at the Desert Vista Last Chance meet, he PR'ed by six seconds to win the 1600 in 4:22.09. He finished the season earning runner-up in Division II's 1600 and 3200 races. Post-season he was part of the #Breakin9 collaboration for the 3200 field at the Arizona Meet of Champions.
