50 Tickets to Brooklyn (#29)

The List

29. Whitney Currie, Forest Hills Central

  • Early in the season, it appeared as if Whitney would keep along her already impressive form from her freshman and sophomore years
  • Around late September, she went into another gear, winning her races at both Kent Ottawa and Allendale Falcon
  • At the Benzie Central, she took that to an even greater level, nearly dropping a minute off her PR
  • All that led to her 3rd straight State Finals appearance and first All-State selection

29. Nathan Faust, East Lansing

On far right

He’s (Nathan) a great teammate and always helps our team in positive ways. He had some injury issues last summer so expect some big jumps from him. He’s always a friend I can ask advice for as well. And he’s the best example of a team first guy.

Matthew Zeleke, East Lansing
  • After a solid freshman debut, Nathan has turned it on the past two years
  • Each year, he’s PR’ed and qualified for State
  • That PR this year was his first jaunt under the 16:00 barrier, smashing it with a 15:47 in the most competitive regional (how was that 9th?!)
  • A bit more speed oriented on the track, having run 4:22 in the 2019 track season
  • Has all the qualities of a great leader on an unheralded East Lansing squad, one that has a good chance of making some noise this year
