Now we come to lists of the D2 Boys distance events, which will feature another three-time returning State Champion ranked as a top contender in all three individual events.
Rylan Stubbs (Campo Verde, Sr.) is the returning D2 Boy State Champion for the 1600m and the 3200m. His closest competitor will be Randy Espinoza (Deer Valley, So.) who placed second in the D2 Boys 3200m and ran sub-4:20 in the D2 Boys 1600m to finish fourth.
Finally, now that Rincon University HS and Millennium HS have been reclassified into Division 2, Thomas Leitner (Rincon University, Sr.) and Alex Rafferty (Millennium, So.) will also contend for State Titles in the D2 distance races. Last year, Leitner placed second and Rafferty finished fourth in the D1 Boys' 800m run at the AIA State Meet.
