"Mason is an 800m specialist but made great gains last fall and ended up our eighth man at the Pac-10 meet. I'm expecting Mason to approach the fall with the mentality that he will contribute significantly to our team success. He has had his best and most consistent summer yet and it will translate to some great running this fall."
