SPC Athletes Who Will Shake Up The State Championships

Dowd is another senior who has been gracing the SPC with his talent the past four years. In the Fall, he won the SPC cross country championships and led his St Stephens squad to another team state title.

Now, Dowd is looking to cap off his career with a big way. He enters as the top SPC runner in both the 1600m (4:21.76) and the 3200m (9:13.21). If he wins both races this weekend, that would make him the second straight St. Stephen's runner to win the distance triple crown (XC 5K, 3200m, and 1600m).

Hooper Price enters this weekend as the top SPC performer in three events. He leads the 100m (10.51), 200m (21.25), and the 400m (48.71). Price already holds two individual SPC meet records (100 and 400m) and two relay records (4x100 and 4x400).

The St John's has been winning state championships since his freshman year when he won the triple jump. Don't be surprised if he has a full work load as he has in the past two seasons. Last year, individually, he won the 400m and was second in the 100m, long jump, and the triple jump.

Jacob (JT) Herrscher

Much like Groppell, Herrscher will be looking to win his second straight SPC title.

The Greenhill senior enters not only as the the SPC pole vault leader but also top guy state wide the No. 3 pole vaulter in the country.

Sam Bass

Most Texas fans will not know who Sam Bass is but that doesn't mean that he isn't worth mentioning. The Casady (Ok) stud distance runner can flat out run. 

The junior won the 2018 Oklahoma Gatorade XC Runner of The Year this past fall on the heels of his second place finish at the SPC cross country state meet. 

Has a full slate this weekend with the 3200m, 4x800 relay, and the 1600m. He is entering today's meet with PRs of 4:25.39 and 9:20.69.

Collin Fullen

Fullen is another one of St. John's big time sprinters. He enters this weekend as SPC's co-record holder in the 100m and the defending state champion. He is also the 2018 200m runner up.

Fullen has been on fire since the indoor season when he was dropping sub 6.70s in the 60m with his 6.86 and 6.89. His senior you could see him end making this meet be the Fullen show by time it is over.

Greg Groppell

The John Cooper discus thrower is having another fantastic year. He has extended his PR in both throws and is the leader in his premiere event (159-7). 

Having already won last year's SPC state meet, Groppell is looking for a repeat performance this weekend to cap off his SPC career.
