  • I’m sure you know his brother, Garrett, but William is slowly beginning to make a name for himself
  • The process kickstarted during his sophomore year, where after a solid 9th grade campaign, he was able to attain top-50 at State then peak hard at the end of track, running 2:08/4:42
  • He was able to break 17:00 for the first time in September, then come October, he was Mr. Consistent, in the 16:30 range or lower in every race
    • His season culminated in a race where he greatly outperformed expectations, finishing 24th at MIS (I had him projected to be 45th)
  • During this spring season, William was able to capitalize on the progress made in the previous seasons, especially in the mid-distance races
    • The 2:08 became a 2:00, the 4:42 became a 4:27, and he was able to qualify for State in both, setting himself up for a senior year where he’ll be able to handle faster speeds
  • I for one am happy that those blonde boys of Parchment have another year tearing through our courses

  • Had anyone heard of Jordyn before this past season? I certainly hadn’t.
  • She raced only twice in middle school, and although her times were good, they did not foretell the freshman success she had
  • Jordyn excels on the soccer field and joined the team last year as sort of an afterthought, a method of staying in shape during the offseason
  • Um yeah about that, she stayed in shape for sure
    • OK Green Conference Champion, freshman record at Zeeland West (beating out a Rachele Schulist if that rings a bell), All-State
  • I hope she sticks with our great sport, as she’s clearly got the talent to accomplish incredible feats
