Are you going to make state rankings/predictions, since you've made rankings for most of the sections?

I have some more rankings to go but if I have the time, I can post state meet rankings as well. If anybody would like to start it up, feel free to do so in the comment section here.

Very easy - all Southern Section favorites are State Meet favorites. Only exception is if Blake Haney is healthy he becomes favorite in the race he runs (1600 or 3200).

John Lawson is without a doubt a 3200m threat. When ever you get 9th at nationals at Footlocker, you're well in contention.

Watch out for Connor Clark of University High School in the 1600m
