50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #32

50 Tickets

Top Tens

Regional Previews

  • Are there any more Byrnes in the pipeline???
  • Just a tremendous improvement between his freshman and sophomore years of cross country
  • As a freshman, he was above average, running in the low 18’s to close the year
  • But as a sophomore, Sean was off the charts, lowering his personal best by 112 seconds
  • That PB came at MIS, where he beat my projection by 54(!) places, finishing 44th
  • He then made another jump in track, where he narrowly missed the additional qualifier for the 3200m at State (9:37), but still ran a time that showed another drop from the fall

  • 2021 is the season for girls such as Caroline Farley and Noel Vanderwall to carry the torch for Petoskey
  • She’s been a part of some major team success, as their girls have finished in the top 3 at State for her entire career, finally winning a title this past year
  • She’s been a contributor those years as well, often running her best at the end of the year
  • As with Sean Byrnes, Noel also took an astounding leap in track, especially at the longer distances
  • She dropped her 3200m best by more than a minute and her 1600m by 25 seconds
  • She placed in both at State (along with a spot on the 4×8), racking up valuable points to contribute to ANOTHER state title
