Top Juniors to Watch in Class 3


Jack Crull (Helias Catholic)

Last year Jack was the first sophomore to finish at State, placing 5th overall. The 16:22 he ran there is the 4th fastest returning time in Class 3 as well. He then went on to have a stellar Track season in the Spring. He placed third in both the 1600m and 800m at State in Class 4 with a 4:17 and 1:55 respectively. With the big improvements he saw this Spring, look for him to compete for the title this season.

Blake Morris (Notre Dame - Cape Girardeau)

Blake had a breakout sophomore season last year. He placed 8th at State, and his PR of 16:25 is the 6th fastest returning time in Class 3. He continued to show improvement on the Track in the Spring, as he dropped 40 seconds off of his 3200m time. Look for Blake to have another strong finish this season.

Michael Rebello (Excelsior Springs)

As the 13th place finisher a year ago, Michael will look to follow it up with another All-State performance this year. He ran his PR of 16:49 at State, and he'll likely be able to drop some time this year. He had a great Track season as well, taking 8th place in the Class 4 3200m with a time of 9:30. Look for Michael to be racing near the front of the field this Fall.

Jonathon Coffman (Herculaneum)

Jonathon has been All-State in each of the last two seasons, placing 15th in 2016 and 21st last year. He holds a PR of 16:33 which he set in 2016 and will look to get back in that ballpark this year. He had a very successful Track season in which he placed 4th in the Class 3 3200 with a 9:42, and 5th in the Class 3 1600m with a 4:28. Look for Jonathon to bounce back this year and be near the front of the field.
