Now we come to lists of the D3 Boys distance events, which will feature a three-time returning State Champion ranked as a top contender in all three individual events.
As a junior, Bowen Martin
, Sr.) had an enormous breakout performance in the Elite Boys 3200m run at the Chandler Rotary Invitational which he handily dominated in 9:10.85, still his current lifetime best. He was also just .42 seconds off the 4:20 barrier for 1600m, and at the AIA State Meet he secured State Titles in both the D3 Boys 1600m and 3200m. This fall he also secured the D3 Boys individual State Title in cross-country.
, Sr.) is the only boy ranked higher than Martin, specifically in the 800m run. Neither of them has broken 2-minutes for the two-lap race, but we might be able to them lead a few guys under 2-minutes this season.
