Barrett never expected to be in this position, but he’s enjoying it as it comes.
“A lot of the hard work I’ve put in over the past year, staying focused, it’s been really nice to do this well,” he said. “If you had told me a year ago I would have made it this far by my junior year I would have been really surprised.”
The scariest part for Barrett’s competitors in Oklahoma? That fact that Barrett said he still sees “a ton of room to improve.”
“My training right now is good but there’s definitely room to pick it up,” he said. “I’ll be running track next year, and there’s a lot of room for improvement, which is exciting. I’m looking forward to my senior year already.”
