Full Virtual Meet and Rankings: Class 5 District 2 Boys

Athletes to Watch:

Nassim Oufattole (Lafayette)

Nassim has been having a stellar senior season for the Lancers. He holds the fastest 3200 (9:08.65) and the fastest 1600 (4:18.66) in Class 5 heading into the State Series. He's also ranked 2nd in the 800 with a 1:56.13 and is going to add the 4x800 in attempt at a quadruple state title like several Lancer before him.

Martin Strong (Kirkwood)

The sophomore has had a stunning season, and no one saw it coming. After only running 2:03 a year ago, he currently leads Class 5 in the 800 with a 1:55.33. Something tells me we are going to be hearing his name a lot over the next few years.

GIRLS

Projected Team Scores: 1. Lafayette - Wildwood (179) 2. Marquette (136) 3. Kirkwood (103.5)

Full Virtual Meet and Rankings: Class 5 District 2 Girls

Athletes to Watch: 

Courtney Williams (Nerinx Hall)

The Nerinx Hall Sophomore has had a very successful Sophomore campaign. She is currently ranked 3rd in the 200 (24.56), and 5th in both the 100 and 400 (12.09/57.73). Look for her to find another gear now that we are in the postseason.

Natalie White (Lafayette)

White has been having a pretty solid senior season. She currently sits at 6th in the Class 5 rankings in the 300H with a season best of 46.57. She is good candidate to drop some time now that she'll be racing faster people in the State Series.
