Ryan Phillips

School: Clovis

Class: Junior

He's qualified because: A career of fluctuation and health obstacles met stability and preferred targets as he timed 15:59 at the Clovis Invitational.

Ran 15:47 for third in the Central Section D-I race and 15:34 for 29th in the CIF State D-I final – a time that ranked No. 5 in the Central Section for the season.

He said it: "It was without a doubt his most consistent season. He did a very good job over the summer, paying attention to training and cross training. He's really matured in how he approaches running and fitness, and it paid off. He definitely had the potential, it was just a matter of being healthy and how he approached the offseason." – Cougars coach Buettner
