Full Virtual Meet and Rankings: Class 5 District 1 Boys

Athletes to Watch:

Dylan Clark (Seckman)

Dylan has been having a great year in Discus. His season best of 180-9 is the second best throw in Class 5, and if he can pull that off again at State he'll be near the top of the medal stand.

Ean Buffington (Jackson)

Ean enters District's with the third fastest 1600 time in Class 5 with a 4:24.33. In addition to that, he also owns the 7th fastest 3200 time with a 9:41.40. Look for him to be near the front in both events in the coming weeks.

GIRLS

Projected Team Scores: 1. Lindbergh (213.83) 2. Poplar Bluff (113) 3. Northwest (95)

Full Virtual Meet and Rankings: Class 5 District 1 Girls

Athletes to Watch:

Abigail Juedemann (Lindbergh)

Juedemann has been the best female distance runner in St. Louis so far this year. Though she is ranked just 9th in the 800 and 1600, and 11th in the 3200 in Class 5, it doesn't tell the whole story. Unlike the girls in Kansas City who make up the entire top of the rankings, she has been pretty much all by herself in her races, so I have no doubt she'll be right with them come State time.
