Regional Previews

  • Yes, it’s not a coincidence that Ethan and Solomon are right next to each other in these rankings
  • They’re both from Oakland County schools that aren’t traditional powers and each had a track season beyond any season prior
    • I really could have placed the two in the same spot, but Solomon had a slightly faster 3200m during track
  • Solomon made his hay primarily during outdoor and especially late
    • After qualifying in both the 1600m and 3200m, his first MHSAA State qualifiers ever, he busted out a 9:22 at State
  • This really came out of nowhere, he hadn’t broken 5:00 the previous spring, and although sub-17 is mighty impressive, 9:20s are in a whole ‘nother galaxy
  • This sets the stage for cross country, Cranbrook has a real chance of making it out of Region 16, and they’ll require Solomon’s low stick and a bit of his track magic to lead the team into early November racing

  • Ashley came into high school experienced at the 5k distance and with the ability to handle competition
    • She had run at a few of the postseason meets during her younger years, the latest of which was a 19:20 at 2020’s Meet of Champions
    • In track competition, she went toe to toe with Lucy Cook in Oakland County’s 1600m and won the 800m on the same day
  • Fast forward to cross country and that recipe resulted in a girl who brought her best in big meets
    • Bath? Personal best.
    • Holly, Oakland County, FML, Regionals? Top-3 finishes
    • State? Unreal personal best.
  • No matter the stage, Ashley delivered
  • And although she unfortunately was unable to compete during track, we know Coach Brinker plus her mindset will take her back to those places in a few months
