Chris Moreno (San Elizario) entered as the defending state champion from the 2022 race and had the best seed time 1:54.37 from the regional rounds

LaFeria's Julian Dominguez would take the lead coming off the curve and bring the group in through 36 and 41 second splits. At the 400m it was Alex Niemiec (Canyon) and Moreno leading the field at 56.60 halfway through.

With 1:25 on the clock through 600m, Victor Aviles (Burnet) would make a move to pull-up side-by-side with Moreno to then take the lead coming off the turn with 100m to go. Aviles would finish close the last lap in a negative split of 56.50 seconds for a 1:53.26 win to Moreno's 1:53.80 for second. Niemiec would get in for third in a 1:54.56 to get on the podium.
