After winning the Class 3A state title in the 500 meters and finishing second in the 800-meter race last winter, Usher should do well in both events again this season. He's also likely to help the Gators on relays.

Virostek won the 800- and 1,600-meter events at the Class 3A state championship meet last winter, which was a big reason why the Wildecats tied Digital Harbor for fourth place in the race for the team title with 39 points.
Woods' versatility will help the Knights this winter because he can do a little bit of everything -- helping in both running and field events. Last winter, he finished fourth in the 300-meter dash and third in the 55-meter hurdles at the Class 2A state title meet.
He has been one of the MIAA's most consistent distance runners over the past few years. Zunkeler will lead another deep Gilman team this winter as the Greyhounds try to repeat as MIAA champions.
