The real guys to watch in this race will be superstars Waleed Suliman and Brandon McGorty who will combine for the perfect matchup of speed and endurance for this Mile race. Waleed has run 4:04 already this season but it is yet to be seen what he can while pushing the pace the entire way.
Brandon McGorty on the other hand is more of a front runner who will push the pace. This should make for an epic showdown for both of these guys and all the other state champions and all-American athletes in this final seeded section.
You better be watching this weekend for what could be the first ever sub-4 mile run by a high schooler in the state of Virginia proper.
