50 Tickets to Brooklyn (#15)

The List

15. Madi Wood, Saline

  • Another one in a long line of Saline greats, Madi burst onto the scene with a surprising 18:49 (and nearly All-State) performance at the 2018 State Meet
  • Continued that momentum into her freshman year of track, showing considerable speed, getting down to 2:13 in the 800m
  • Beginning in October, put together a championship-level stretch of races, with a sub-18 at Portage, then running the equivalent rating at State in tougher conditions
  • Given her steady improvement, don’t be shocked if she makes a bid for the Division 1 crown

15. Connor Vachon, Jenison

  • Jenison runs many races, it must be difficult to go to the well that many times, but Connor was up for the task
  • Following a surprising 16:41 at Regionals as a freshman, he wasn’t able to finish his sophomore year, this year he showed tremendous resiliency late
  • Has some mid-distance ability on the track, having run 4:23 last spring.  This winter, he was able to shave 7 seconds off his time from the previous winter, may he have had a similar drop in outdoor?
  • Nabbed his first All-State berth in his first appearance at MIS
