2022 Mid-Season Regional Projections – Shrine


  • I received a bit of pushback over the summer for ranking the Royal Oak Shrine boys so high, well look who’s still here in first
    • Okay, they didn’t add the great number of 8th graders as projected, but unless anyone finds a better method than assuming 8th graders running cross will run 9th grade cross, let me know
    • The 9th graders that have competed for the Knights, Michael Bowker and Abenezer Cerone, have made a noticeable impact on their fortunes
      • Bowker has run in the 18’s on a variety of courses – Holly, Goodells, Algonac
      • Cerone has followed the same pattern, albeit a tad faster, high-17’s at those venues
  • Although the top three remain the same for the boys, Lutheran Westland has moved down significantly in terms of points
    • Year to year, the Warriors have raced at the same places, and in those races (OCS Small School, Holly, Ramblin Rock, Whitmore Lake), Nathan Betke has finished almost 100 seconds faster on average in 2022 compared to 2021
    • Nathan clocks in as Westland’s 5th runner on the chart below, and as you can see, he’s the best 5th runner in the field
  • The Girls section remains a similar order and range of scores compared to earlier
    • Rochester Hills Lutheran NW has absorbed the absence of one of their key contributors, who I believe will be back soon, and heck, they’re still in first
      • Kendall Zaliwski has stepped up for the Crusaders, at Holly she ran 64 seconds faster than in 2021, and a 2022 season best
    • Auburn Hills Oakland Christian doesn’t have a few of the girls that I had anticipated joining the team, but that’s been offset by Leah Zarilli, who just placed 8th in the first MIAC Jamboree, 4 spots better than any placing last year
