50 Tickets to Brooklyn (#21)

The List

21. Hannah Bodine, East Grand Rapids


Hannah is very inclusive and always make everyone on the team feel welcome. She was voted a captain on the team this year, as she’s kind to everyone and is very well-liked. She’s a fun running buddy and makes everyone faster by pushing the pace in workouts and runs. I’m excited to see what she’ll be able to do this year in cross country!

Ainsley Workman
  • In her three years at East Grand Rapids, Hannah has been a major factor in the continued success of their program
  • She was the 2nd runner in 2019, holding off a pesky Petoskey squad and 6th girl in 2018
  • Hannah has steadily dropped her PR every year and hit that 18:30 mark in multiple big races last fall
  • Major track ability too, 2:15 in the 800m and leadoff on EGR’s winning 4×8 team in the 2019 track season

21. Peter Baracco, Farmington

Peters talent, physical prowess, and mental tenacity are only surpassed by his hatred for defeat. This, along with his inner calm under pressure, allows him to thrive when the stakes are the highest. His accolades as an individual are primed to grow, but his most sought after goal is leading his teammates back to Brooklyn.

Coach Jeremy Auer
  • Peter has had some of the better two years of any boy in the Class of 2022
  • He had his coming out party at 2018 Jackson, running 16:02 as a true freshman.
  • He’s had two straight sub-16 performances at MIS, two All-State (even top-20)
  • Battled injuries during his 2019 track campaign which may have contributed to a slower start, but his final two races give hope for progress into 2020
