  • Her ability to keep it rolling, championship after championship, season after season, is simply astounding
  • The above image details her accomplishments during the MHSAA seasons, I couldn’t find enough room to fit AAU and indoor track
    • A few weeks ago at Junior Olympics, she grabbed the silver medal in the 1500m and the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP in the 3000m
    • Back at the LAB, she used a furious last lap to snatch victory, winning the MITS 3200m
  • It’s not as if it’s taken awhile to get to this level, she’s always been there
    • Her career commenced with five consecutive victories, that freshman year ended with an All-State
    • In the spring of ’21, she further established herself at the D1 level, placing 4th in the 3200m at East Kentwood
  • Even at her high speed, gains were made as a sophomore, getting into the top-10 at MIS and progressing from 10:53 to 10:26 over the eight-lap distance
  • More championships are coming in 2-3 months, you can all but guarantee Jayden will be present, competing up front

  • As this Grand Haven program has risen back into prominence, along has come runners such as Nolan
  • His progression through the years makes so much sense, each tiny step building on one another
  • He began his career back in 2019, running above 18:00 in the beginning stages of the season, and closed it with a major confidence boost, a 16:34 at Benzie
  • This Buccaneer took it a step further in his sophomore version, multiple mid-16’s to close, but more importantly, a trip to MIS   
    • I always say you need one trip to the State level to take in the experience and get ready to rip it the following year
  • Rip it is what he did, from mid-September on, racing to sub-16 in six of his final races
    • Not only the times, he put himself on the medal stand as well, placing 2nd at OK Red, 4th in Region 1, then his first All-State, 17th in Division 1
  • And it just keeps building, the spirit gained from the fall took hold in track, his 4:15 and 9:08 both ranking in the top-5 amongst Michigan returners
  • These Grand Haven kids keep it close to the vest and do an amazing job of letting their legs do the talking, after all, those are the results that matter
