MA Athletes To Watch: Tristan Shelgren, St. John's Prep

Tristan Shelgren, St. John's Prep

After a sensational cross-country season where he captured the individual title at the All State Meet and qualified for the Foot Locker Nationals with an impressive win at the Northeast Regionals, we're expecting big things from this Eagles senior. Shelgren is the defending state and New England champion for the mile where he owns a best of 4:15.93. He also has a best of 9:10 for two miles, which he did on the outdoor surface. With nationally-ranked competitors like Arlington's Ryan Oosting and Newton North's Andrew Mah also competing in these events, Shelgren will be pushed in these events and should improve on his best substantially this winter.
