NCRunners XC Countdown Boys #1: Mount Tabor's Will Soule

Coming in at No. 1 on our cross country pre-season countdown is Mount Tabor's Will Soule.

Soule is coming off a junior season where he posted some impressive times. He ran 1:54 over 800m at a tri-meet in May, and backed it up three days later at NCRunners Twilight with a personal best time of 4:14 in the 1600m.

He was runner-up at the NCHSAA 3A state meet in the 1600m running 4:17.

He was NC No. 1 in the 3200m last season, clocking 9:15 in a runner-up performance at New Balance Dash for Doobie.  

He was also NC No. 5 in the 1600m, and NC No. 10 in the 800m during his junior campaign. 

Soule was 4th at the NCHSAA 3A Midwest Regional and 3A state meet in cross country. He finished behind pre-season No. 2 Motondo and No. 4 Townshend.

Mount Tabor returns their entire top seven from their 3rd place finish during cross country last season.

I think that Soule proved during track season that he will be the one beat this season over 5000m.
