Boys 17-18 4x400
It will be a real surprise if Texas doesn't cash in on the boys 4x400 titles. In the 17-18 boys, Texas has 5 of the top times. Yes, you only see 4 listed, but The Wings TC has the top time in the Nation and their B team has the second fastest time with a 3:14.x. Last season, The Wings took second in the AAU national race behind the team ranked right behind them in these rankings. Elite Speed from Atlanta won in 3:09.78 over the Wings' 3:10.30. The Wings will look to return that favor this year. They will have to hold off other top Texas squads though. Max Velocity TC has a 3:14.83 of their own and they are for real!!! DeSoto Swift has some of the top talent in the Dallas area and they were in that AAU final last season and they want to capitalize on that performance and take the win in USATF.
The 15-16 year old boys race has five of Texas clubs in there as well. Last year's AAU champs Track Houston possibly has the best group of four in the nation again this year and they are definitely the heavy favorites. The Houston Pace Setters are a talented squad and they will not make it easy on anyone who wants that AAU title.
