50 Tickets to Brooklyn (#6)

The List

6. Hunter Jones, Benzie Central

In front, often the case, MLive
  • Hunter entered 2019’s XC season as one of the more heralded freshmen ever, and he backed up those accolades
  • His middle school accomplishments are well known, 4:32/9:34 on the track
  • His only defeat on the year came at Pete Moss, against the likes of Owen Johnson and Tyler Buchanan; beyond that he was undefeated
  • In those future races, took down sophomore sensations such as Baracco and Sumner, and beat an ever-improving Carson Hersch
  • One would imagine that 15:24 PR would be even lower if he was pulled along
  • Was able to run 4:28 indoors and 15:30 on the track this spring

6. Sarah Forsyth, Ann Arbor Pioneer

  • Speaking of heralded freshmen, the Forsyth family always has someone in the pipeline, Sarah being no different
  • She entered her freshman year with some blazing times, nearly sub-18 at Jackson and Pete Moss, before finishing as an All-State runner
  • This past year, she was able to do the same, all while breaking 18:00 and finishing in the top-10 at MIS
  • She takes the reins from the great Zofia Dudek and looks to lead Pioneer to another state title
  • Her indoor performances were a great indicator of her ability to do that, nearly equaling her times from 2019’s outdoor season and bettering her indoor marks by 10+ seconds from the prior year
