Competed in five meets for his freshman track campaign. Started the season off with a dominating win at the Big West Challenge in the 800m, leading from the gun with a 1:51.98 clocking. Set a personal best in the 800m just two weeks later at the Bryan Clay Invitational with a time of 1:50.10. Came back a few hours later at the same meet to double up in the 1500m to clock another personal best with a time of 3:55.01. Took first at the Cal Poly Dual in the 800m with a time of 1:52.35 and third in the 1500m with a time of 3:56.08.

Finished up his incredible first year with two back to back 1:50 800m clockings at the NCAA West Regional Preliminary Round, one of them being a new personal best at 1:50.01.
