50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #16

50 Tickets

Top Tens

Regional Previews

  • Rylee fought through a tough year and comes back looking to reclaim her spot at the top of Division 3
  • After missing much of the final stretch of the track season, she gutted out a 4th place finish in the 1600m, a finish that speaks to her drive
  • Her career has been full of success, and that success started early:
    • As a freshman, she bolted into the 18’s early, nabbed an All-State spot, then garnered two Top 5 finishes in track
    • Her sophomore year resulted in further drops in cross, a state title, and then a 3200m PB during indoor
  • During the 2020 season, she reached down even further into the cross country bag with multiple sub-18 runs
  • Her race at MIS in November is well documented and remembered, and it should be for this reason – if she doesn’t finish, does Stockbridge finish 20th as a team or 2nd in terms of Academic All-State?
    • Her ability to sacrifice for the team will take her to great places in this sport

  • One has to marvel at Brett’s ability to consistently peak at the end of the year
    • As a freshman, he dipped down into the 17’s after beginning the year on the high side of 20:00
    • The same trend as a sophomore, with a clutch 35 sec. PB at the Willow regional (not the easiest course ever!)
  • And this past year, that trend paid off on the big stage with a 2nd place finish at CHSL, a regional victory, and his first All-State honor
    • The consistent times in those three races lands him on the list – one of the first listed so far to consistently run sub-16
  • He reached similar heights in track, especially in the 3200m, where his 9:37 narrowly missed a state qualifier
  • I hope that disappointment fuels his summer training and sets the bar even higher for his inevitable November awakening
