Boys Returners: 10-6

For the top 10, I’ve decided to rank runners in order.  Enjoy!

10. Jack Spamer, Brighton


  • Forms a formidable top two with unnamed Brighton runner
  • A great race at a tough course at Averill early, but no bad races, especially late into the season
  • Lowered XC PR by 30 seconds last year
  • Set track PRs in everything between 400-3200m
  • Regional champ in both 1600 and 3200

9. Jack Wilson, Romeo


  • Exceptional raw talent, has been a top 15 performer at State the past two years.
  • Defending Regional champ
  • Impressive speed ratings early, some of the better individual performances of anyone returning
  • PRed in everything in track
  • Regional champ in 1600, where he ran 4:17.9

8. Peter Baracco, Farmington


  • In my ratings, top freshman in XC last year (it’s very close between him and Hough)
  • Peter’s 208 at Oakland County is the highest individual freshman rating and his 15:56 at MIS was the best freshman time of the day
  • Impressive finishes include 5th at Oakland County and 17th at State
  • Ran 9:40 in track before his season was cut short, thankfully he’s back to running as of now

7. Patrick Byrnes, Plymouth


  • Plymouth another team with a formidable duo (heck, trio)
  • Two outstanding races at Holly and Coaching Legends, still consistent at the end of the year (like Spamer)
  • Obtained a 31 second PR last season
  • Exceptional speed on the track in races between 400-1600
  • 2nd in both the 800 and 1600 at State, Regional champ in both

6. Anthony Hancock, Dearborn Divine Child


  • Dominated the Catholic ranks in XC, winning both at Michigan Catholic and CHSL
  • Following a mid-season swoon, came on strong at the end of the year with the last three races above 207.
  • Lowered his XC PR by 33 seconds from 2017
  • PRed in all three distance events in track
  • Division 2 State champ in the 3200 with a 9:06
