Top Boys To Watch At Golden South Series #2

Austin Montini (Oak Hall School) - Boys Mile, 800m, 2Mile

Austin Montini collected three state titles for his senior year winning the 1A cross country title in the fall and a pair of titles on the track in the 1600 and 800. The Yale University commit actually had his outdoor season threatened when he missed a good chunk of the season due to the coronavirus. Once he returned to action in time for championship season, Montini flipped the switch and came on strong to post winning times of 4:21 in the 1600 and a 1:55 PR in the 800 at the FHSAA State Track Finals. He also anchored the Oak Hill boys to a state title in the 4x800 meter relay as well. 

He's entered in all 3 distance events for Golden South Series #2, so while it is unlikely he competes in all three, Montini is an intriguing option to pick as the winner in all three races despite not having the top seed time in any of the events. He showed at the state meet what a great closer that he is.
