    Dalton Mortensen ended his senior year by breaking the 4:30 barrier in the 1600m and the 9:40 barrier in the 3200m.  This signifies that Mortensen has entered an elite level that only a few of the returning athletes are in.  Dalton is just a junior so he still has a lot of time to bring those marks even lower, and his 15:14.10 ranked him 2nd in his age class last year. Dalton finished 10 in the XC State meet in 2018 just making the podium and finished 9th in the 3200m missing it by one spot.  The 2018 season was Dalton's first season of High School XC and now he enters his second season as a top returner in the State!
