  • Mylie’s story has been documented a few times here but it’s worth repeating (you never know who’s reading and how it could affect them)
  • She’s been around running her entire life and was a good middle school runner, but not outstanding
  • She made a decision before 8th grade track that she was going to dedicate herself to the sport and – IT’S PAID OFF
  • Mylie ran 21:14 at Benzie’s 2019 PROM (8th grade), then this past year, ran 19:27 on the same course
  • Her best performances came away from home – an 18:50 at Bluejay and a 19:06 on an unseasonably warm day at MIS
  • Her track season was rife with awards and accomplishments, among those a conference title, three All-States, AAU titles, and just recently, a 6th place finish at the Cherry Mile

  • Let’s start with TJ’s 10:06 at the Bluejay Invite and do some comparisons
    • Coleman Clark ran 11:44 there in 2016 and finished his freshman year with a 16:39 PB
    • Mason Sumner ran 11:12 there in 2017 and placed 6th at MIS with a 16:23
    • Kenny Lewis ran 10:44 in 2019 and broke the elusive 17:00 as a freshman last year
  • His 16:21 at MMOC proved he can race at the additional distance
  • And the 10th place finish at AAU Nationals in December prove that he can race when faced with competition
  • He didn’t get the opportunity to lay down a fast 3200m in track, but his cross performances were so dominating and rated so highly that he’s included here
  • As with Whalen, his ratings correspond almost directly to Hunter Jones
  • D2 will be a battle for the next four years
