Sean Halpin, Iona Prep: This past spring it seemed as though Halpin turned a corner as he took seventh in the 800 meter Emerging Elite race at Nike Outdoor Nationals in 1:55.0. That race capped off a tremendous year for Halpin that started with a third-place finish at counties. As the top returning runner in Westchester, he should be in for a big year.
Patrick Wortner, Dobbs Ferry: The junior is the top returning runner from Class C. At sectionals he placed second, running 17:35.05. He also finished 22nd at the county meet last year. He came close to breaking 17 last year, but fell just short as he ran 17:13.0 at Somers.
Dayton Flannery, Bronxville: After a season that saw Flannery place eighth in Class C in 18:14.13 as an eighth-grader, this year he should be one of the top freshmen in the section. After a year of varsity racing, Flannery should begin to show some improvements.
