Mathews, Shiflet, and Thornsberry Top in Returning 1600 Boys


Austin Mathews was the 2018 KY Dream Mile runner up and will look to continue his strong 2018 season into his senior year.


As we embark on the outdoor track and field season, we are going to break down all 14 individual events for the boys and girls across the state. Not only will you find the overall rankings, but also who leads each of the three classifications (A, AA, & AAA) but also who are the top athletes in each graduating class (2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022). Can you believe it? Outdoor season is coming soon!

Last outdoor season, current UK runner Trevor Warren of Trinity was the dominant force all season long in the 1600m. Coming into 2019, the door has opened for Austin Mathews (Paul Dunbar) and Grady Shiflet (St. Xavier) to walk through in Class AAA. The story has remained the same in Class A for the past two years with Keeton Thornsberry (Holy Cross (Louisville)) as the two time defending state champ in the event. Meanwhile, Class AA is wide open with the top five finishers graduating leaving cross country state champ Colton Bullington of Warren East as the top returning athlete.
