The class of 2018 is loaded with talent, especially in the boys 800. Led by Jacob Burnam of Trinity and Josiah Harp of Central Hardin, there are 16 boys who return with times from 2017 under 2:00. With Yared Nuguse's graduation, the 800 is wide open and there is a crowd jockeying for position. Burnam had a solid indoor season taking the Wildcat Classic and placing 10th at the UK High School Invitational. Harp has not competed yet in 2018 but placed 4th at the State Cross Country Meet and looked good doing it! Watch for Dedrick Troxell, the defending class A state champion, who gave Keeton Thornsberry his only loss at the outdoor state championship in 2017. My dark horse in this event is Luke Spurrier as he is on a solid South Warren squad and has been highly competitive at the state cross country level. The junior may surprise some people.

Jacob Burnam talks about his Wildcat Classic victory and US #46 (at the time of the race) mark


Watch the race Jacob talked about in the previous interview (also featured Dedrick Troxell)


Luke Spurrier placed 9th in the 800 at Vanderbilt with a 1:57.14 (KY #2 mark this indoor season)
