  • This past spring, Alexandra took that next step and seriously showed us some range
  • You could see the traces of a breakout season early, when someone is running PB’s in cold, early season duals, you know they’re raring to hit exceptional times when the weather and competition warms
  • She did that exactly, hitting a 10:54 at New Balance, then 2:19 at Oakland County, 5:02 at D1 State
  • We saw a similar pattern last fall, an 18:57 at Jackson (not the greatest conditions ever), on par with her freshman season best
  • And then a month later, multiple 18:1x efforts and another All-State honor
  • All in all, a year where Alexandra continuously busted through barriers, and given that track season, it doesn’t look like she’s done growing in this sport

  • Braydon entered Freeland as one of “those” freshman, the ones that are pegged for success
  • Sometimes those are the most difficult, saddled with high expectations, unneeded pressure, and a chance that they grow loathing the sport
  • That definitely has not been the case, as we see Braydon explore new avenues, gain trophies in all sorts of events
  • Early in his career, these came on the grass, where he racked up a Saginaw County title, TVC Overall title, two Regional Championships, and two All-States         
    • Even more impressive, his 2020 season began late
  • Injury hindered his cross country season as a junior, although he admirably competed through much of the latter half of the season
  • But then in track, he found success in the mid-distance, breaking 4:20, grabbing an All-State in the 800m
  • We know from the past that Braydon has the 5k chops, now adding greater turnover to the mix?
    • I’m ready and excited to find out where that leads
