2022 Ratings: Queen City

The Upper Peninsula ratings take a bit of a different course than the Lower Peninsula ones. In a way, they’re based on the Lower Peninsula ratings, in a way, they’re separate. They are derived from last year, where come October, I was able trace back UP teams that competed in LP meets, then work my way around through all the various invites and championships. I’m already strapped for time as is, and waiting until October to work through Upper Peninsula meets is a disservice to those athletes.

The rating for last year’s early season meets at Presque Isle was a solid, consistent -55 for both genders. Given the similar fields at last year’s Queen City Invite and this year’s version, I was able to compare graphs from both days. I should be able to do the same for this week’s Dale Phillips Invite, then it’ll be a season’s worth of referencing runners until I’m able to get numbers on athletes spanning from the Porkies to Drummond Island.

Boys Adjustment: -43
Girls Adjustment: -38


Kai Chouinard, Marquette: The Redmen were projected to be dominant, dominated here, and all one can see is dominance. It would be easy to dismiss individual runners and their progress in the midst of their impressive string of wins, but easy ain’t my mode. Kai wasn’t projected to be in their varsity before the season, the 12th guy by my count. And that’s backed up by his performances in 2021, having gone sub-20 once. He showed progress in the long sprints during the spring, sub-60 in all of his 400m races, 5th place in the Great Northern Conference. But from my point of view, nothing that could have foretold his 18:15 and role as Marquette’s 6th man. Many in the state are anticipating Potter’s House in the Spartan Elite race. Marquette is making the trek down here as well, given these early results, they’d be a prospect for a top team in the Lower Peninsula’s Division 1 as well.

Lola Korpi, Ishpeming: It’s been a career of success for Lola. Of her 18 races at the high school level, she’s won 15 of them. She finished 2nd in 2020’s Division 2 Finals and attained the victory last year. Last fall, it was a debate (was there a debate? I surely dropped the ball here) whether her or Ingrid Seagren was the better runner. This fall, it appears she’ll get a challenge from the east side, Newberry’s Samantha Taylor coming in hot here. But the winning spirit prevailed early, a 20:40, her best August mark yet, a win in the quest for this queen to defend her crown.
