  • I tell this tale every time, but maybe there’s an 8th grader reading these things: Mylie was a good middle school runner, not outstanding by any stretch, but between her 8th grade fall and 9th grade season, she dedicated herself to the sport, turning a 14:00 2 miler to a 19:00 5k runner
  • As such, she had a freshman year full of accolades and surprises, going sub-19 a few times, finishing 8th in D3, running 11:09 at Bluejay Elite, medaling at both the 1600m and 3200m.
  • There’s been bumps along the way, but Mylie has proven that if you keep sticking with it and rely on your support system, you can come out a stronger girl
    • A 19:30 at Pete Moss could’ve wrecked her confidence, she finishes the season 6th at D3 State and breaks the school record
    • An 18th place in the Indoor State 3200m was well below expectations, at that point she might as well give up on the weekend, she came back the next day to help win the 4×8
    • Mediocre race after mediocre race may have made a mere mortal shut down her track season, she held on for 8th at D3 State
  • So yep, that perseverance inspires confidence that when she gets rolling again, she’ll really be rolling
    • And hey, if you’re up to date on your Fourth of July road races, you’d know Mylie’s on the right path

  • On the contrary, Tyler came into high school as a stud, WITH expectations, and boy has he lived up to those
  • His times haven’t been eye-popping, but as a Bulldog team member, he’s been just what they need, progressing throughout the year and coming through in championship races when it matters
  • As a freshman, he ran his season best at State, helping Brighton secure a top-15 finish
  • As a sophomore, he went sub-16:20 at KLAA and State, both of which Brighton victories
  • Again, I just love this Brighton website, and Tyler’s bio on here sums up why I think he’ll be ready to handle the season’s challenges
    • “I can’t wait to see how our team can evolve and respond to meet new challenges. Most importantly, after winning a big state title, we must stay humble and hungry for the next season.”
  • Not resting on laurels, not coming into meets thinking they’re better than their competition, being aware of needed growth – with this correct mindset, he’s set up for success in 2022
