50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #7

50 Tickets

Top Tens

Regional Previews

  • A common characteristic of anyone at this level is that they peak at the right time, and Andrew is another prime example of that
  • In each year, he’s run his season best at one of the last three meets of the year
  • As a sophomore, it came in a surprise 8th place finish at Regionals
  • In 2020, three successive PB’s: Regionals, State Meet, and the Meet of Champions
  • Despite one of the slower mile bests, he was able to show incredible strength, pulling off a 9:12 at the New Balance 3200m
  • Definitely a sleeper on the state scene, but someone to watch in the finishing stretch of any race because he closes hard
  • I guarantee he will sneak up on quite a few at MIS and finish much higher than expected

  • I’m a huge fan of Arianne because she’s a shining example of grit and that if you train through segment after segment, the results will come
  • She burst into the high school arena as a freshman, winning all but two of her races, hitting sub-18 multiple times, all the way to a 2nd place finish at MIS
  • In the absence of a 2020 track season, she time trial’ed a sub-17 on the roads and it appeared as if she would be the dominant force in D1 cross
  • And although she finished top-10 again, that didn’t seem to happen
    • But if you train through many segments and years, you’ll have races and seasons that don’t make sense, as long as you keep grinding, you’ll hit your goals
  • Track came and Arianne was back, her 4:50 ranking 4th amongst returners, her 10:26 ranking 2nd, and she continued her impressive streak of top-10 finishes with a 2nd place in the 3200m
  • She’s probably a little underrated as far as these rankings go, but I don’t think she minds that one bit
