50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #47

50 Tickets

  • I swear this is the last time I’ll use this hashtag all summer, but Morgan is another example of #TheSkrollEffect
  • To go from the high-23’s as a freshman to low-19’s in only a year is fairly incredible
    • And judging by those track times, she’s got more growth in her as well
  • Morgan really stepped into her bag in the spring of ’21, her openers at 2:33/5:41 that eventually got down to 2:20/5:19
  • After a rustbusting opener at Kensington, she laid down a 19:14 at Willow, looking to match the Churchill boys on a magical season
  • But that was unfortunately cut short, she was unable to compete at Regional, and thus State
  • Folks such as myself were wondering if she’d return to her prior form in track, she sure swept away those wonders, with multiple sub-5:05 efforts to close the year

  • Spring of ’21, heading out to Dexter to watch some track action for the first time in two years, Brandon immediately caught my eye
  • He ran 2:13/4:52 that day, solid, but not spectacular, but he had an aggressive mindset to his racing that you could see mixed with a bit of strength could lead to a special runner
  • Those special qualities came out last fall, where every 5k he ran was south of 17:00
    • Dexter doesn’t avoid hard courses either – there’s a Holly in there, Hudson Mills North as well
  • Brandon slightly inched down time over the course of the season and in the most important race of the year, hit a nearly 20 sec. PB, a 16:12 at MIS
  • This spring season, he made continued progression, especially in the 800m, cutting time down from 2:13 to 2:00
    • That 2:00 is ranked 14th amongst all sophomores in 2022
