2022 Outlook: Hampden Academy missed out on the State Meet in 2021, but things should be better for them this year. The Broncos were missing some of their top runners at the regional, and with those runners back, they will have a much stronger team. Additionally, this team is made up of underclassmen, who tend to improve a little more from year-to-year compared to older runners. Lastly, Hampden looks to add Gretchen Plant, who ran 6:12 for 1600m as a middle schooler last year at Reed Brooks Middle School, which is part of the same school system as Hampden Academy. The Broncos should be especially competitive in 2023, when they bring back everybody from this squad.
