50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #19

50 Tickets

Top Tens

Regional Previews

  • Four individual races at State events, three top-3 finishes
  • Those top finished have spanned both the grass and the track
    • That 3rd place finish on the track was in the 3200m as a freshman, just behind Frens and Squires
    • The other two have been at MIS, where Meghan truly shines
  • She’s been at the head of the D2 discussion for the past two years and rightfully so, with many trophies to her name
    • Greater Lansing as a freshman, Regional and CAAC Reds both years
    • CAAC Reds and Regionals on the track
  • The times were a little faster as a freshman, 17’s at both CAAC Red and Bluejay, but come November, she actually ran faster, 18:18 at State in 2020 to 18:10 in 2021
  • Given that progress, we should expect a run into the 17’s and many more championships to bring home

  • The benefit of having very fast training partners and a yearly tradition of success is that you can bring Joe along slowly, ready to dominate at the front of the pack as a senior
  • I should take that back, Joe has always been at or near the front
    • In his 2019 freshman year, he was able to eclipse the 17:00 barrier late, both at Benzie and Northern Michigan
    • During his 10th grade year, he threw out an eye-opening 16:14 at Bluejay, then repeated that immaculate performance with a 16:19 at State
  • But his junior year is when he began to put it all together, the entire year sub-17, many of those races under 16:35, culminating in a 15:54 at State
    • His finishes at Regionals, Northern Michigan, and State were all his best to date
  • In track, we’ve seen those undeviating advances too, his 800m improving from 2:07 to 2:01, his 1600m from 4:35 to 4:21
  • That added strength and speed in the 1600m could be the ticket to a huge fall, at the very least, we know Joe will keep tickin’ and hittin’ those gains
