The Top Tens

Regional Previews

  • Collin was a magnificent middle school runner for the Pirates, winning the majority of his races, finishing top-5 at Greater Lansing twice, breaking 11:00
  • He’s carried that over into his high school career, racking up the times and titles
  • After a track stint at Carson City (where he broke 10:00 and placed at D4 State), he began the season with victories in 5 of his first 6 races
  • He had a minor hiccup at Bluejay but then turned in a wonderful October and November, claiming crowns in the CMAC and Region 24, stepping on that podium at MIS as well
  • Similar medals at big meets were attained during track, where he placed All-State in the 1600m
  • I’m glad he’s found a home over in P-W, he’ll be leading a team looking to place high at State, and he’ll be counted on to run well when it matters, something to which Collin is extremely accustomed

  • One may look at those times and ratings and wonder, why is AnnDee on here?
  • Well I’m happy to report that track is a huge factor and she knocked it out of the park this track season
  • In both the 1600m and 3200m, she was able to thrown down times and rack up awards, 5:05 was good enough for 20th in D1, 11:01 the 18th fastest time among all returners, and she grabbed a Macomb County title along the way
    • She didn’t quite reach the 2:25 800m level she did in 2021, but those marks in the longer distances are much more impressive
  • All this came on the back of her first cross season since 7th grade
  • I’m not sure the reason for the absence, all I know is that AnnDee more than made up for lost time
  • A little adjustment was needed, running above 20:00 for the majority of meets before championship season
  • But come October, she adjusted to circumstances and raced like a veteran
    • Muddy, mucky courses at the MAC Championship and Region 9, she placed 5th at the MAC meet and qualified for State
    • Ideal conditions at State, but a competition level rarely seen in her season, she nearly pulled off an All-State
  • Whatever it may be, her track season sets the stage for a further jump in cross and it’s great to see the rebirth of the Macomb County girls
