If there's one thing the guys at DyeStat know, it's cross country. I mean, they really know cross country. That's why it's worth checking out their preview of all 50 states, which includes the following info on Fairfield Prep senior Connor Rog:
Connor Rog of Fairfield Prep, 13th as a soph and 2nd last year, is favored to win the 2011 state open championship. Rog went on to win the state indoor 3200 with a 3rd in the New Englands. In the spring, he took 2nd in both the state and New England 3200, along with a 7th-place 8:31.22 3k at Penn Relays. After his 15:03.27 5,000 for 7th at New Balance Outdoor Nationals, Rog seems ready to move up this fall from his 21st in the Foot Locker Northeast to a top-10 berth in the finals.
