2021 Ratings: Benzie Regional (29, 20)

The plan is to go through these regionals in the same order that they were posted. Friday first, starting with regions with less divisions, working towards those with more.

They’ll be a basic show of the ratings and a runner that stepped up. I plan on working back on regional recaps after the season, I always love showcasing success and there will be ample opportunity (and the real factor – time) to do so. Those recaps will feature more teams and individuals.

If you’re a senior (or are a parent/coach of one) that qualified for State, send me a pic of you in your uniform, either running or not running. I want to use those pics in my State Finals graphics. Those that I don’t use in the graphics, I’ll use in the recap.


How Are Speed Ratings Calculated?!

20 Boys Adjustment: +41

People have been clamoring for me to rate different races or divisions on the same course, same day.  I agree with this notion as the course can change and so can the weather conditions.  It does produce a bit more variability in ratings when you’re working with a smaller sample, but I feel it’s applicable for regionals this year.  And since I have the time to do so, I’ll do so here.  Some don’t make as much sense, but you have to understand there’s a range of error with each listing.  The smaller the race, the higher that range.  You’ll see that here, but I believe the change throughout the day will make sense.


Tara Towsend, Frankfort: Tara has had an illustrious career for Frankfort.  Four consecutive top-20 placements at Regionals, three trips to MIS.  Her final time on the Benzie course resulted in a PB, a great way to go out.

Nora Grossnickle, Benzie Central: Mylie might receive all the honors, but it’s the group that creates the Top-15 team.  Nora has incrementally dropped time throughout the year, and when I say incrementally, I mean large increments.  Compare on the same course – 25:08 at Pete Moss, 22:15 at NWC 3, 21:11 on Saturday.

Kaden Forward, Bear Lake-Onekama: Nice time for his first win of his high school career.  Kaden finished 8th here last year en route to a 61st place finish at State.  Does claiming a victory lead to greatness this week?

Nolan Moffit, Manton: I don’t care how “short” Benzie may be, Nolan ran a 33 sec. PB (and 54 sec. season best) in the most important race of the season.  He began the season running above 20:00 as Manton’s 4th/5th boy, on Saturday he was their #3 and an extra body to put in the Reed City gap, enough to send the Rangers team down south.
