  • It’s been a consistent theme with the boys so far here, coming into their own as a junior in track
  • Brighton’s Bulldogs always seem to do this, after a few seasons of heavy mileage, hard work, growing together, they reach a point where it all meshes together
  • For Brady, it was most notably dropping his 800m from 2:10 to 2:00 and his 3200m from 9:47 to 9:33
  • He has the experience of being there in big races, the hyped dual between Brighton and Caledonia needed many pieces to execute, and Brady was a solid 6th man for their squad
  • His times and ratings didn’t match his early season prowess, but he still snuck under 17:00 at State
  • As one of a few captains, he’ll be essential in the team’s quest for more glory and I’m confident he’ll be up for the task

Also, whomever created this Brighton website should be proud of themselves. What a great way to get the captains to tell their backstory. Also loved all the info in the various tabs. Clean and well put together!

  • It’s taken awhile, but Sam is beginning to show the promise she put forth as a young runner
  • But that’s not entirely her fault, as her 2020 track season was canceled and her 2021 season ended in a walking boot
  • With a more careful approach by her coaches, she blossomed this past spring, especially in the mid-distances
  • As mentioned in the Scheffler writeup, she was part of a trio of Downriver girls racing under 2:17 at the Downriver League Championship, where she finished 2nd
  • At season’s end, she had three sub-2:20 800s to her name, culminating in a 2:16 at State to finish 9th
  • It’s not as if the shorter races were it, she also ran 11:15 in early May, and I bet if she raced it a month later, she’d be screaming down towards the 11:00 barrier
  • With all these bullet points describing her track season, it might seem as if she’s not had any cross success, that ain’t the case, she’s a 3x State Qualifier, 3x Top-10 in the Downriver League, and twice All-Wayne County
  • That said, expect her to contend for the latter two crowns this coming fall
