Top Tens

Here’s a list of Michigan freshman boys (in recent history) who have been faster than TJ’s 9:21 3200m:

  1. Ben Hill

Yep, that’s it. Ben went onto achieving All-State at the end of each and every year (the one he didn’t, he was hurt, and would’ve seriously challenged Grant Fisher). Then he went onto be a great teammate at Michigan and Wake Forest.

Here’s a list of those who have run in the 9:20’s as a freshman in the past 10 years:

  1. Riley Hough
  2. Cole Johnson
  3. Enael Woldemichael
  4. Carter Solomon

Cole has been ripping it up in the mid-distances at Michigan, Enael has broken 14:00 for 5k, and Riley + Solomon have won the last three D1 cross titles.

Needless to say, I believe TJ has a bright future ahead of him and a great coach to guide him along that path.

  • Hart is the school, heart is the adjective
    • How this family (the Ackleys are her cousins) and school keeps coming after it year after year takes a bit of talent, but the willpower within must be tremendous
  • Alyson began her track season late, people have told me she was recovering from an injury, but I didn’t hear a single complaint coming from their program, family, or herself
  • The track season ended the way most seasons do at Hart, with some sort of title, Alyson playing a role in the 4×800
  • On the grass, Alyson is just a flat out winner
    • Of the 27 races listed on athleticnet in her career, she’s won 17 of them
    • Among those, 7 of the 7 conference races she’s entered, Portage this year, Regionals last year, Cougar Falcon the past two years
  • At the state level, she’s found a ton of success as well
    • Hart has captured the team title each of the past two years
    • Alyson has finished 2nd in each of those races, some may say the 5th runner is the most important, but if she walks it in, those titles don’t occur – everyone plays a role
  • History can be a great indicator and I think it applies here – Alyson will again play an integral part for her Pirate team and given her response to adversity this spring, great accomplishments are on her horizon
