MA Athletes To Watch: Ryan Oosting, Arlington

Ryan Oosting, Arlington

Unfortunately, Oosting wasn't quite able to finish his cross-country season the way that he wanted. An ill-timed sickness kept the Spy Ponders' junior out of contention for an individual title at the All State Meet and forced him to miss the Foot Locker Northeast Regionals where he was hoping to earn a trip to San Diego for the national meet. A healthy Oosting could certainly make an impact on the indoor surface on both a state and national level. The Arlington standout, the defending 5K outdoor national titlist, won the mile and two mile last spring. He was just getting started during the indoor track season where he won the two mile at the Eastern Division 2 Championships and finished third overall at the All State Meet. He clocked his then-best of 9:12 for 2M at the New Balance Nationals in March where he finished tenth overall.  He would improve on that time by seven seconds during the outdoor campaign. At his best, Oosting has proven he can compete against the nation's elite and we're predicting that will happen this season.
