Kyle Hartford is set to be one of the top runner for the Red Riots this fall.
#7- South Portland Red Riots
Class A #5
Class A South #3
Class A South Regional: 2nd (111 points)
Class A State Championships: 5th (174 points)
Top Returning Runners: (Based on Personal Bests)
2022 Outlook: South Portland could be a real title threat come October if things come together for them. The Red Riots return 4 of their top 7 athletes (all of them seniors) from their runner-up squad at Regionals last season. Interestingly, their next 3 best returning athletes were all freshmen last year, and SoPo will hope that one or more of them can make the jump to run with the seniors. Nickerson and Hartford are experienced athletes and will be great leaders for this team. Pack running will be key for the Red Riots, and they will try to get their 5th runner across the line before other team's 4th or even 3rd runners.
