50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #34

50 Tickets

The Top Tens

Regional Previews

  • If you’ve followed Macomb County XC or the work that I do for the past few years, you know the Clor name
    • Connor’s sister has been a lead runner for the Romeo’s girls team for a few years now, doing my middle school research, there appear to be more in the pipeline
    • If you read my D1 State Preview, I made a little mention of how Romeo will reload, but in order to reload, you have to make something out of the talent that you receive
  • Connor had all the middle school accolades, running sub-11:30, winning the Dakota Invite twice, and him, Buslepp, and the Romeo culture have converted that into one of our faster incoming juniors
  • He’s been on the big stage, a 6th runner on Romeo state title squad in 2020, then as the 3rd/4th guy on last year’s team that finished 5th
  • Connor isn’t blessed with the world’s greatest speed, but the tradeoff is an immense amount of strength, his 3200m pace only 16 seconds slower than his 1600m best
  • Along with Vince Guaresimo and a few others, he’ll be counted on to lead a Romeo squad that’ll be fighting to hold off the new Macomb County upstarts

  • Speaking of bloodlines, Isabelle’s got ‘em as well, her family very influential in the Tri-Cities running tradition
  • So it’s no surprise that she’s stepped in as a freshman, undaunted by the stage
  • After a bit of an adjustment, she ran her best in championship meets, winning the Saginaw Valley League, breaking 19:00 at State (the 7th fastest freshman girl), then helping a certain team win the Meet of Champions
  • That same pattern occurred during track, where she found a home in the 1600m
    • A few 5:40’s early led to 5:10’s late, in those 5:10’s, a Bay County crown and 2nd place finish at SVL
  • Consummate teammate as well, helping the Warriors bring home victories in the 4×800 at Region 1 and the SVL Championship
