Creekside: Already carrying a pair of state titles from 2015 and 2016, the Knights return a possible Class 3A challenger in senior Matt Ortiz. A veteran of the Knights’ state championship squad from two years ago, Ortiz brings the right combination of experience and speed, and he lowered his personal best to 16:18.30 at the District 4-3A meet. He’s backed up by Ian Smith, Preston Rose and a host of younger runners on the way up.
