50 Tickets to Brooklyn: #16

Regional Previews

  • It’s great to see a Grosse Pointer here, South, a school with a proud tradition of XC and track success
  • Logan has raced a bit more sparingly than most in his cross career, but when he’s had the opportunity to get after it, he’s done just that
  • Glances at his potential were seen early, a 16:59 at Chandler Park as a freshman, along with many other mid-17 efforts
  • But late in the 2020 season, after a year without competition, we began to see Logan’s talent materialize with a 16:14 at Regionals and a 16:37 at State
  • That same trajectory repeated itself in 2021, this time running below 16:30 on any day that it wasn’t a muddy mess, his season culminating with an All-State berth and his second sub-16 ever
  • During track, he racked up crown after crown, double victories in the 16 and 32 at MAC Red and Region 6
  • Then in one of the more competitive 1600m’s seen at the State level, he placed 10th in 4:18
  • Considering his 2021 track best was 4:40 and then he ran 15:54, expect another tremendous drop come October and November

  • Do some research into the 2019 season and you’ll come across a little 19:27 5k at Allendale’s post-regional meet by an 8th grade Selma
  • That was missed by me in previewing the 2020 season, but Selma sure made her presence known off the jump
    • Her opener was a 19:34, then she ran back to back sub-19’s at Ottawa Hills and Bengals, two of the major meets early in that season
    • All in all, her freshman year ended with an All-State certificate
  • Her 2021 season wasn’t as scorching, although there were a few sub-19’s, that performance at the state stage wasn’t as lovely
  • A lesser woman would have let that be a negative force on her career, not Selma, she had the track season of her life
    • Huge personal bests in the 800m and 1600m, leaping from 2:26 to 2:19 and 5:13 to 4:57
    • And strength was shown with a sub-11 3200m
  • Let’s see if she can take the momentum from track and make a return trip to the medal stand at MIS
