2019 McQuaid Invitational

100% correct, and I am currently eating a big crow. I was wrong. Ackley is absolutely the real deal, and I sold him way short. His - and the entire Davidson boys team's - progression throughout the year has been unreal. In 5 short months, Ackley has gone from a gangly kid running 5:02 to finish 2nd at a middle school track meet (1st time I saw him) to a beast running right with the best in the state.

I'll be receding into the Yappi shadows now, tail firmly between my legs...
