Pat Bailey

C. Milton Wright

Only a junior, last season's runner-up at Class 4A state meet finished no worse than sixth in every race.

Bill Duffy


If the senior can improve on a fifth-place finish at the state meet, the Lions could be the team to beat in the Class 3A division.

Will Knox


Sixth at the state meet, the senior will run head-to-head with Duffy for the No. 1 spot.

Eugene McAuliffe


Senior McAuliffe will be counted upon again to help the Dons defend their Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association championship.

Izudin Mehmedovic

Oakland Mills

The "Bosnian Flash" owns a Class 1A state record time (16:24) and a state crown entering his senior season.

James Mullaly

Mount Hebron

Could a state title be in the works for the senior Mullaly, who finished third at the Class 2A state meet?

Will Murdoch

C. Milton Wright

Murdoch, a senior and Class 3A North regional champ who transferred from Bel Air, will vie with Bailey for top honors in Harford County and the state.

Matt Sanders

Mount Hebron

Only Bailey ran a better time among juniors at Hereford than Sanders, who will solidify the Vikings' move from Class 2A to Class 3A.

Shane Stroup

River Hill

The senior All-Metro Performer of the Year in indoor and outdoor track could complete a rare sweep this fall.

Chris Wright

Mount St. Joseph

The senior has been selected Baltimore City/County Performer of the Year for the past two seasons.
