Simpson immediately showed improvement during the 2019 indoor season, lowering his 1600 personal best from 4:40 the previous year to 4:31 at the indoor state championships (good for sixth place). He dipped under 4:30 during the spring and also clocked a 9:52 3200 at the Bullis Invitational. After running 17:32 as a sophomore last fall, he isn't Blair's fastest returning runner, but he very well could end up being their #1 if he carries he track success onto the course. His teammate, Max Worley, could also have been on this list after running 4:35
