Class 4's 800m Runners to Watch in 2019

Five State Qualifiers return in the Class 4 Boys 800m, including three State Medalists from 2018.

Jack Crull of Helias Catholic is the top returner from last season after finishing third at State with the fastest returning time in Class 4 with a 1:55. He ran 1:57 or faster in each of his last five races last season and looks strong heading into the 2019 season. His top challengers look to be Keegan Cordova of Platte County and Markeith Crawford of Ladue who both medaled and ran 1:57 last season.
