50 Tickets to Brooklyn (#2)

The List

2. Riley Hough, Hartland

Battling Hobbs Kessler, MLive
  • Riley had a sensational freshman year in 2018, finishing All-State and breaking 16:00 late in October
  • In terms of progress, that doesn’t always carry over to the next year, but he was able to drop significant time
    • And given that, we can expect to see more development
  • Riley was able to lower his PR from 15:39 to 15:09 (on Portage, a legitimately fair track)
  • He’s been the lead guy on Hartland for a few years now, a team looking to bust into the top-10 at MIS
  • He’s been very accomplished, especially in the championship season, racking up All-Conference, All-Region, and All-State honors in each of his first two years in high school

2. Audrey DaDamio, Birmingham Seaholm

  • Audrey has been on the track to greatness since her freshman year
  • She showed her potential early, nearly breaking 19:00 that year, and has been steadily improving since
  • That improvement culminated with a 18th place finish at FootLocker this past fall
  • She’s one of three returning FootLocker qualifiers (I think you can guess who the top boys and girls are)
  • Her season in Michigan wasn’t too shabby either – Oakland County Champ, OAA Red Champ, All-State, and numerous sub-18 performances
  • She continued that improvement into the 2020 indoor season, setting PRs in both the 1600m and 3200m (4:52/10:24)
