2022 Mid-Season Regional Projections – Sharp Park Regional



  • Gosh, Hillsdale Academy and Adrian Lenawee Christian are pretty much the same as projected
    • Hillsdale Academy did lose Cole Bates, but many of their top performers from last year are performing at an admirable level
    • Alex Richards has done a superb job of filling Cole’s role, two great races back to back at Holly and Jackson
    • Lenawee Christian scarily equals the projections, and these rankings cover the meets before the Cougars experienced The Workout, which always brings forth a new level of grit for championship season
  • Michael Allen, Javin Mericle, and Zach Martinez have all been crucial in the uptick of East Jackson and Morenci
  • I did take a little peek at what the D4 Girls Rankings would’ve been this week, and if I recall correctly, Hillsdale Academy would’ve moved up in a good way
    • The Colt girls just finished 3rd at Jackson, ahead of many D3 teams, ahead of many RANKED D3 teams
    • All of their top 5 achieved a season or personal best, girls such as Ruth Brownlee knocking almost a minute off their previous best.
      • That jump from 21:00 to 20:15 will encompass a ton of the pack at a State Meet
  • Addison has moved into the 3rd spot, only fitting with an extra little presence on their shoulder during races
    • Stephanie Hernandez has done her thing up front, already racing faster than her State Finals effort from last year

  • Hanover-Horton and Jackson Lumen Christi just do it year after year
    • It’s not just having the lead runners such as Madison Osterberg and Rogan Melling, it’s about bringing Macy Fazekas and Zach Hassenzahl into the sport, it’s about developing Austin Brown and Gabrielle Osterberg
      • Last fall, Gabrielle ran 25:16 at Michigan Catholic, this fall a 21:19
      • Jackson, she progressed from 21:22 to 20:42
      • Austin was above 19:00 for much of his first three years, he’s now developed into much more – running in the 17’s or faster each and every time out
  • Leslie owes much of their 2nd place projection to junior Erik Dexter, who just finished the race of his life, a 19:04 at this very course. For perspective, his freshman year ended after two races, the best of those two was a 25:02
  • The Girls Top 3 is undoubtedly one of the stronger regional trios in the State, even within that, Onsted is running much faster than expected
    • Of course, Emmry Ross plays a role, looking like a potential State Champion with each succeeding race
    • Standing out to me over the weekend were her unrelenting even splits, by my watch, sticking close to 5:40 all throughout, running alone the entire way
    • Their greater influencers in the scoring are Allyson Robarge and Allie England, this weekend each running significant PB’s on Jackson’s South Side
