50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #4

50 Tickets

Top Tens

Regional Previews

  • It’s taken a few years, but Peter has finally reached the potential he showed as a freshman
  • In that freshman year, he made people take notice with a 5th place finish at Oakland County, then came back and broke 16:00 at MIS, finishing 17th
  • MIS is his home ground, in each year he’s either matched or run his season best there, despite running objectively faster courses throughout the year
  • This past fall, he added a few more accomplishments – Regional and Oakland County crowns
  • He hung right in there in the record-breaking New Balance 3200m, crossing the line in 9:01
  • At D1 State, he put a huge scare into Riley Hough, opening up a major gap on the penultimate lap, only to be overtaken in the final 100m
  • He’ll throw everything at Riley this next year to get that state title – and we’ll be here to watch

  • How she balances it all, I have no clue
  • Clara somehow finds time to train, run, race, cycle, swim, all at an elite level
  • She’s arguably the top triathlete for her age group in the country, winning the USA Triathlon Draft-Legal Duathlon and Youth Elite races back in May
  • Yes, that was in May, in the middle of a track season where she went under 11:00 on seven separate occasions
  • One of those seven was a 3rd place finish in the D1 3200m, where she hung tough on a blistering pace set by Audrey DaDamio
  • On the cross course, she was a steady performer in the low-18’s, her season culminating in a 6th place finish at State
  • Between Clara, Drew Muller, and Madelyn Frens, there will be some absolute battles in the Grand Rapids area
