Top Boys To Watch At State Meet

It’s no secret that nationally-ranked La Salle Academy is the odds on favorite to capture the state title this Sunday at Ponaganset. But who will break the tape at the finish? Could the Rams’ D.J. Principe become the first sophomore to earn gold since Cumberland’s Jerry Bonner in 1998? Will teammate Jack Salisbury, the early-season favorite, have enough in the tank after being sidelined for nearly two months with a quad injury? How about Hendricken’s Mike Potter? Can he make his wish come true from this past summer by giving the Hawks their second straight individual champion?

Here’s what MileSplit RI considers the top five boys to watch this weekend.
