STATE FINALS WORKOUTS

STATE FINALS WEEK 2011 >>>-----CC à

Monday – 2 mile warm, cals, high knees, 20-30 minutes easy, maybe inside if it’s too nasty out.
Tuesday – 2 mile warmup, 1xmile HARD, 4x400m HARD, 4x200m HARD, easy 1 mile cool.
Wednesday – 2 mile warm easy 20 minutes, 4x100yard stride-outs.
Thursday – 2 mile warm, 8x400m, starting at race pace, then each one 1 second faster.
Friday – Depart GHS at noon – Run in Lansing
Saturday – MHSAA DIVISION 2 STATE FINALS --- BOYS D2 RACE IS AT 2:30PM
Sunday – eat lots of junk food and look at your times at mhsaa.com

Nate and Charmander – you two are peaking perfectly and had amazingly fast times at Benzie. Your low 16’s put you both in contention for the possibility of being ALL-STATE. What will it take to be all-state? First, just like Benzie you will need a good solid start – out hard for the first 600m then relax and cruise with the fast pace. Mentally relax after 600m and go with the flow. You will come by the MILE mark in around 5:00, maybe a bit faster. At this point you need to set yourself up for a place in the top 40. If you are in 60th here at the mile its over, you’re not going to be able to pass 30 runners at the state finals. Get out hard, get out controlled and focus on RELAXING after you exit the racetrack. At the 1.5 mile mark you will be passing the huge crowds. I will be just before this point trying to give you an idea of place – again, be in the top 40 if you really want ALL-STATE. Going up the hill to the 2 mile mark you need to just maintain. Go around the two mile mark and USE THAT DOWNHILL, here is where you can pick up a couple places, you can FLY down this hill. As you re-enter the track and hit that soft squishy grass relax again and save it for the last 600-800m – watch for the signs, then gradually turn loose your sprint. This last ½ mile is where your all-state status will be determined. Last year, and nearly every year the cutoff is right around 16:10 to be top 30, all state.

Jake - You had a GREAT regional race and you are just beginning to find out how fast you really are. The state finals course is exactly like Benzie, flat and fast and I think you can improve on that 16:37. Read what I wrote for nate and charmander above – if you are feeling it and all goes well I believe you have an outside shot at all-state too. When you are peaking you can take another 15-20 seconds off your Benzie time and that puts you in contention to be top 30. You will need the same race strategy we had at Benzie, get out, relax and think of the races in three stages – start hard, relax to the mile, hold position until the two mile, then use the downhill after the two mile to pick up places. It has been a great 4 years of XC for you and Saturday at MIS will be the final day all your miles and all your efforts pay off.

Ian/Sean - You both had good PR’s at Benzie but you also both have more in you. At the state finals we need you both to go big. I want you to get our hard in that top 70-80 places and just hold on. Just like Benzie the start will be important, hard to the half mile mark, then RELAX and hold position. At the 1.5 mile mark I will be giving you an idea of place – again, the top 100 is where you need to be. Hold that spot until the two mile and then use the downhill to make your move. I truly believe that the 16’s are very do-able for both of you. You are both peaking, you both have hundreds and hundreds of miles and years of racing experience on your side. Many teams have runners who are in their first trip to MIS and the finals. Sean, this is your FOURTH time, and Ian this is your THIRD. You are experience and ready. 16:50, 16:50, 16:50, 16:50, 16:50, 16:50, 16:50, 16:50, 16:50, 16:50 keep chanting it in your head all week.

Josh/Collin - enjoy the trip and get experience for next year.

BANQUET -- NOVEMBER 17th, 6pm

http://michigancrosscountry.com/wp-content/uploads/MHSAA-Regional-10-2-at-Benzie.txt

Review - Boys ran amazingly fast time in a stacked regional with two top ten ranked teams and came out 3rd. Personal best times by all boys, Nate Fischer's 16:08 is the fastest time by a GHS boys in the last 6 years and Charlend Howard was right behind in 16:19. Jake Pasternak would have been "all-regional" in any other year with his huge 16:37 but the number of fast boys in this race was just too much. Ian Callison had a personal best time as #4 man and Sean Hope sealed the trip to MIS with a 5th man solid position. Charlend and Nate earn ALL REGIONAL honors for the second year in a row with their finish today.

Girls - would have qualified in nearly any other regional in Michigan. #1 ranked Cedar Springs, #2 ranked Fremonth, #11 ranked Cadillac, #22 ranked Petoskey all in front of us but the girls ran great. Six of our 7 girls had personal best times and should leave this season satisfied with their efforts.

Boys Portage Results and summary

Boys here is how you stacked up against TCC and TCW at Portage. And after looking at this i think we have a shot at beating them at our home course next week at the BNC finals. Both nate and charlend have a shot at winning it outright. Jake and Ian needt o move up to break up Fleisher and Doetterrer. We ran ok at Portage, not great, not terrible. Next BNC we need great.

2011 PARENT GUIDE TO GAYLORD XC


MEET SCHEDULE (GIRLS WILL RUN FIRST IN ALL MEETS)

Clare Invite August 31 - Directions - take I-75 south toward clare and stay on 127 where I-75 branches off. Exit at Mannsiding road (exit 168) and turn east (that's left) on Mannsiding to the light/stop sign. Watch for sign to Mid-Michigan Community College and enter. Go into college and watch for busses - you will drive in on the entrance road for 1+ miles or so. This meet is run in a special way. Starting at 4pm the 7th graders race, then 8th, 9th graders at430pm, 10th at 5pm, 11th at 530pm and 12th at 6pm. It is the only race all season where kids compete against only their own age group. Nice fast course in the shade with lots of medals. Bus leaves GHS at 130pm, pictures at 1pm.

SEPTEMBER 10TH SATURDAY – CHARLEVOIX MUD RUN, meet is run with 11-12th grade boys at 9am, 11-12 girls at 930am, 9-10 boys at 1030, 9-10 girls at 1030am, open race (PARENTS) at 11am, middle school race 1130am, awards 12 noon. Should be about 15 teams or so, last year girls won this meet, boys were 6th. Medals to top 10. Great first meet where kids can compete against their own age levels. The course is European style XC with hay bale jumps, barriers, and MUD. Directions – go out of town west on M-32 to East Jordan, then take M-66 into Charlevoix, turn LEFT at the first light at the intersection of M-66 and M-31. Go south on M-31 about 200 yard then turn immediately left on Marion Center Road (C-65). Continue on along for about 1.5 miles to Charlevoix High School.


SEPTEMBER 20TH, TUESDAY – BIG NORTH CONFERENCE MEET #1 – CADILLAC
This is the first of our Big North Conference meets with Petoskey, Cadillac, Alpena, Ogemaw, TCCentral, and TCWest. It is always some of the toughest competition we face all year. There will be only two race BOYS first, then GIRLS, starting at 4pm. Directions – go to Cadillac’s Mackinac Trail Middle School. While driving south through Cadillac on Business 131, turn right onto MACKINAC TRAIL and you’ll come to the MIDDLE school and CC course.

SEPTEMBER 24TH , SATURDAY DELTA INVITATIONAL – DELTA COLLEGE Unique, short, flat and fast 2 mile race. This is one of my favorite meets – Girls have won this invitational for the last 16 years in a row, boys have won 14 of the last 16 years. It features a varsity boys (1140am), varsity girls (12noon), boys JV (1040am), girls JV (11am) races. Directions – take i-75 south to exit 160 – (BAY ROAD). Go just a bit then turn right onto DELTA ROAD. Delta College about a mile down on Delta Road.

Oct 4, TUESDAY, BIG NORTH CONFERENCE MEET #2, Petoskey
This is the second of our big north conference meets. Same schedule as the last one with a fairly tough course at Camp Petosega over east of Petoskey about 15 miles. Boys all at 4pm, girls at 430pm. We will go up through Indian River, west on M-68 towards Petoskey then take some back roads. You are best off googling Camp Petosega and printing yourself off a map.

OCTOBER 8TH, SATURDAY, PORTAGE INVITATIONAL, Portage Michigan
This is the largest XC invitational in the state of Michigan. We will take VARSITY only to this meet (maybe one extra person if we have room) and we’ll leave on FRIDAY about noon. As usual we will spend the night in Grand Rapids, go out for dinner, then head to Portage on Saturday morning. This is the exact same routine as we follow for our state finals and its great preparation. For more info on the meet and what it takes to medal or place well see www.portageinvite.com they have tons of pics, results, and information. We will take the top 12 boys and top 12 girls to this meet. I need TWO more parents to drive vans with 6 athletes each.



OCTOBER 18TH, TUESDAY, BIG NORTH CONFERENCE FINALS, GAYLORD COUNTRY CLUB.
This is the final BNC meet for us and it will determine the team conference champion and individual all-conference honors. It is one of the toughest courses we run all year, but we love it. Races start at 4pm with Boys Varsity, then Girls Varsity, then ALL JV.

OCTOBER 22TH, SATURDAY, ELK RAPIDS INVITATION, ELK RAPIDS HIGH SCHOOL.
This is another big meet with some fast competition, but a very fast course too. Directions – in the downtown area turn off M-31 onto AMES street. Go up Ames and then turn RIGHT onto South BRAND Street. Go down Brand and then turn right onto 3rd Street, Park at the high school. The athletes finish at this meet will determine if they make the varsity for regionals and state finals. 99% of the time I take the top 7 fastest finishers on the day as our varsity for the remainder of the season. If one of our usual top 1-2-3-4 runners has an off day due to sickness I may place them onto varsity regardless of their finish here.

OCTOBER 25, TUESDAY – ROTARY INVITATIONAL – GAYLORD COUNTRY CLUB
The varsity may or may not run in this meet – I decide this about two days before the meet depending on how kids are feeling and if we do/don’t have injuries or sickness. The meet starts at 4pm and ALL JV runners will run – it is their last meet.

OCTOBER 29TH SATURDAY – REGIONALS, BENZIE CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL, TIME TBD
Our regional finish determines if we will move on to the state finals here – we must place in the top 3 teams. Individually you can also qualify for the state finals by placing in the top 15 individuals in this meet.
Directions – go to Traverse City then head south on US-31. Turn right (west) at Chum’s Corners as you stay on 31 continuing west for about 15 miles. Go THROUGH the little town of Honor, then turn left (south) on North Marshall rd (Co Rd 679. Go up the big hill and continue until you come to Homestead Rd. Turn right and you will be at the school in a few miles. Meet times to be determined.

NOVEMBER 5th - MHSAA STATE FINALS – BROOKLYN, MICHIGAN, MIS SPEEDWAY
The state finals are held at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn. As usual, we’ll stay at the Holiday Inn south or Holiday Inn Express in Lansing on Friday night, have dinner at Olive Garden, go shopping at the mall, and head down to Brooklyn early Saturday morning. I’ll pass out a full packet of information about the state finals when the time draws near. For more information see … http://www.mhsaa.com and go to cross country - this site has past results, times, etc.

NOVEMBER 10TH, TEAM BANQUET, GAYLORD HIGH SCHOOL – 6pm
Our team banquet will be held at GHS in the commons area for dessert, then the auditorium.


















RULES RULES RULES -- Obviously we have school rules. These all apply while on the bus, at practice, or at meets and can be found in your student handbook. Other than that, one big rule is the FIVE DAY RULE. In order to be eligible to participate in a meet you will have to participate in five consecutive days of practice. There are acceptable reasons for missing practice. These include: family emergencies, funerals, family functions, etc. Reason which are NOT acceptable for missing practice are – haircuts, babysitting, jobs, etc. If you feel you must miss practice for any particular reason PLEASE talk to me well in advance and clear it with me first. If you simply don’t show up at practice it will probably make you ineligible to participate in the next meet. If you are sick or injured, again, PLEASE TALK to me. A day of rest can be considered your practice for the day if you communicate with me. Communication is the key.

Remember – our GHS athletic department rules also apply. The athletic department rules state that if you are ABSENT from ANY PORTION of the school day school day then you are not allowed to participate in practice. This will then affect the 5 day rule we have for cross country. Exceptions to this rule are PRE-EXCUSED absences for doctor appointments, orthodontics, college visits etc. However, these must be communicated to the coach and/or Athletic Director.

Example 1 – Johnny is tired because he was up late and had a busy week of tests and studying. He asks his parents to let him sleep in and excuse him from 1st and 2nd hour. He will not be eligible to participate in practice and will not be eligible to run in a cross country meet until he has 5 consecutive practice days.

Example 2 – Susy forget her spikes at home for the meet today so she skips 4th hour to go home and get them. Mom calls in to excuse her. She will not be eligible to participate in the meet this day and must get 5 consecutive practices before she is eligible.

Example 3 – James has an upcoming orthodontist appointment in Petoskey. He talks to his coach two days before the appointment about the situation and tells the coach that he will miss 3rd and 4th hour but he will be back for practice. He is excused and may participate in practice.

Example 4 – Jane is not feeling well at all. She comes to school but feels sick and she has a sore throat. After school she comes to practice and talks to the coach. They discuss their options. If I see that Jane is NOT feeling well, her practice for the day will probably be to go home and rest. This will count as an official practice day for the athlete. Sometimes the best practice is rest.

Example 5 – Robert is not feeling well. He tells our team captain that he’s going home right after school because he’s sick. Robert misses practice and does not talk to the coach or communicate with him in any way. Robert is in violation of the five day rule.

In a nutshell, we want students in school. If they are too sick to be in school then they will need several days to recover to get better. This is the reason for the five day rule.

Focus Rule - I know many CC athletes join us to “get in shape for another sport.” These soccer players, basketball players, wrestlers, or whatever have often become a very valuable part of our team and we appreciate them joining us. However, this has also led to some conflicts. First, since XC is the sport that is currently “in season” you must choose XC events/meets over any “club” meets or events. Second, you must NOT participate in any other sport during the last 4 weeks of our competitive season. For 2011, that means starting on October 1st you must not be in any other organized club sport that has regular practices or “games.” Why? Doing too much at this point in the season leads to “burnout”, over doing it, and ultimately, injuries. We focus on running our fastest in October and you NEED EXTRA REST, not extra workouts. If you cannot follow this rule then XC is just not for you and that’s ok. Focus on what you feel you need to focus on, no worries.


A few helpful hints for the athletes:

Rest - During the training season athletes will need more rest than normal. The demands of competitive running, school, work, chores, and family put a lot of stress on your runner. Please be sure they are getting plenty of rest. Trying to balance school, jobs, and a competitive sports team can put a lot of stress on adolescents. Getting the proper amount of sleep is a necessity.

Food – think of runners as race cars. Race cars need race fuel. Good fuel for runners is carbohydrates and lots of liquids. Fresh fruit, vegetables, breads, cereals, fruit juices, and small amounts of low-fat protein are great. No special diet is required, BUT girls will require extra IRON in their diets. Ask your pediatrician or family doctor about iron supplements. A recent study shows that over 50% of all teenage girls are borderline anemic. Extra iron in their diets or iron supplements will help their running AND make them feel better overall.

Hydration is also important. Gatorade, Powerade, and other sports drinks allow runners to re-hydrate AND keep important electrolytes. Too much water (over 6-7 glasses a day) can rinse the body of the electrolytes (sodium and potassium) needed for proper muscle contraction.

Shoes/Clothing – it is best if runners have a NEW pair of running shoes each season. This keeps their legs healthy and stress free. Many athletes like to purchase high tech, vapor wicking, expensive running gear. This is not necessary. Shorts, t-shirts, and sweats will do just fine. If you are going to spend money, it’s best spent on shoes. Spikes are not mandatory, but definitely helpful in XC races. Many races will have muddy courses with hills and sharp turns. Spikes will keep you on your feet in these situations. A quick google search will find many of last years model spike shoes on sale CHEAP !! www.eastbay.com is a good place to start – check out the “bargains”

Notes for parents -- One of the best things you, as a parent, can do to help your child’s running career is to be positive. Attend their meets and cheer loudly for them. Don’t bug them about weekend running and summer training. Athletes who are pushed usually shy away from running and feel pressured. When they are ready, both physically and emotionally, they will begin to run on their own. My parents purchased me a “running log;” it was one of the biggest motivators for me. It was a simple little book I could use to write down each workout I did. In 1982 I began filling the pages and I felt like I needed to write something down each day. 29 years, 150+ races, over 12,000 miles later I’m still filling the pages.

Boys vs Girls -- Boys and girls react differently to running. As freshman and sophomores, boys are often nowhere near their best. Boys usually need to be 16-18 years old before they can hope to be running at their potential. The key for boys is to stick with it. As a freshman I was the 15th fastest boy on my team. As a senior I was the second fastest. The valuable experience that boys gain as 9-10th graders will pay dividends when they are junior and senior varsity runners. Girls, on the other hand, can often run very well as freshmen and sophomores. Some girls get slower as they move through high school, some stay the same, and some get faster. It is important that girls do not get discouraged if their times do not improve over their career.



Varsity and JV -- The varsity is comprised of the top 7 fastest boys and top 7 fastest girl runners. With each meet this can change. If you finish in the top 7 of our runners in one meet you will run the next meet as a varsity competitor. To earn a varsity letter you must be a varsity runner in at least half of our races OR be on our varsity team for the regional meet.

Girls – as you probably know, our girls team has a tradition of being one of the best teams in the state of Michigan. In 2007 the girls team were STATE CHAMPIONS. The girls were also Regional champs in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008. Currently the girls team has qualified for the state championship 10 years in a row – the longest streak in Division 2 (class B). We look to continue the streak this year!!

Boys – we lose only one senior from our Varsity team this year and all the rest of our runners from last year are back. Last year we qualified for the state meet where we placed 14th and 2nd at regionals. The boys have a number of all-regional and all-conference runners and look to become the regional champions for the first year since 1995.

team camp information


GAYLORD HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY TEAM CAMP 2011

Who: For PARENTS AND PARTICIPANTS!
Where: Munising Michigan, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
Campground – Munising Tourist Park Campground (906) 387-3145
Coach’s Cell Phone – (989) 370-0924 --- home phone 989-939-8684

Cost: I will collect $100 from each participant at our PARENT MEETING on Monday Aug 9 – 6pm at GHS !! If you prefer to wait and pay the $100 on the day we leave (Aug 15th) that is fine too. – PLEASE NO CHECKS – CASH ONLY – IF YOU MUST DO A CHECK MAKE IT OUT TO ME, JEFF KALEMBER, SO WE CAN CASH IT BEFORE WE LEAVE. This cost covers camping fees, a camp T-shirt, ferry to the Island, gas, food, snacks, etc. The money you pay will also cover lunch and dinner each day – you will provide your own breakfast (cereal is what most people do) and you will also pay for your own DINNER Wednesday and lunch Thursday (lunch on Mackinac Island). If the $100 fee is too much for you, please talk to me privately -- this fee should not prevent anyone from attending camp. In addition to the registration cost, you should have some spending money for snacks, souvenirs, etc. (Just so you know where your $100 goes here is a list of expenses per athlete – Tshirt $10, gas $15, ferry to Mac. Island $15, camping fees $10 – food $40) Any leftover money will be used for POST RACE MEALS – we will order pizzas, buy Gatorade, drinks for meets, etc !! Usually we have NO money left over and have to use a portion of our fund-raising money to cover costs for camp. It’s not cheap to feed and transport 35+ kids around for 4 days!!

Parent volunteers:

In addition to me, we have the Kassubas, Fischers, Warrens, Wendy Howard, Diane Duff, and Dreyers as parent chaperones. Parent volunteers responsibilities include shuttling camp participants to trails, grocery shopping, helping to organize meals, and enjoying the beauty of Michigan’s great Upper Peninsula. Your help is really appreciated; this wouldn’t be possible without you! There is NO charge for parents who attend and we’ll feed you and pay your gas money! It’s like a mini vacation for you ! If you are a parent and cannot go this year – think about next year!! We can always use extra help.

Don’t forget !!
• Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday breakfast – EVERYONE MUST BRING THEIR OWN BREAKFAST FOR 3 MORNINGS! Last year most people just brought along a box of their favorite cereal. (WE WILL PROVIDE THE MILK) Breakfast will also include fruits, juice, bagels, etc provided by your camp fees.
• WEDNESDAY dinner & THURSDAY lunch – you need to have your own $$
• YOU NEED YOUR PHYSICAL DONE BEFORE YOU LEAVE AND YOU NEED A PARENT CONSENT FORM SIGNED BEFORE YOU LEAVE, *No PHYSICAL? NO GO! So, be sure to get it done.
• No headphones, iPods allowed out during the DAY, but it is fine to listen to music in your tent when you are going to bed (after 10pm). THIS YEAR I AM ALSO BANNING CELL PHONES FROM 6PM TO 11PM. DURING THIS TIME WE WILL EAT DINNER, HAVE OUR MEETINGS AND SIT AROUND THE CAMPFIRE. THIS IS THE TIME WHERE YOU BOND WITH YOUR TEAM. Your goal is not to stay in touch with your friends back home!! Your goal IS to hang out with your XC friends.
• All school rules apply.
• Camp is a POSITIVE experience. We do not run FAST, but we do go a long ways. Get yourself in shape and be prepared to run. More importantly, be prepared to “bond” with your team. A team that plays together is a team that runs harder for their teammates. NO whining allowed.

Girls Team Preview

The GHS girls XC team returns several varsity runners from last season's team.

Megan Borgeson - Megan is now a senior and team captain for our team, as a returning all-regional and all-conference runner Megan was our #1 runner a few times last season and we look for her to be in or near that spot again this year. Megan also has the 6th fastest ever mile for GHS in track and is a very consisten runner with a 5k best of 19:58. Megan's best quality is the hard work ethic she brings to her summer workouts and mileage.

Geena Duff - now a Junior, Geena has been a staple of our GHS varsity xc team for the last two years, consistenly running on the varsity team in all but two races over her 26 race career. Geena's 20:27 time at the MHSAA state finals landed her as our 3rd best runner last season and she was consistenly around that time in our other big races. In 2010 she was about 40 seconds from being "all-regional" with a fine 29th place at the Benzie course. Geena's best quality is her desire - she gives her all to be at her best in big races.

Katelynn Dreyer - also a Junior, Katelynn has been in the same position as Geena - a varsity runner for the last two years. As a freshman Katelynn just missed all regional honors in XC but her track seasons have been filled with honors - both all-conference, all-regional and a school record in the 4x400m relay. Katelynn's speed is probably her best quality, but her endurance in XC is also very helpful to her team.

Paige Hypio - as a junior last year Paige came through with three huge races to give our team a big help at the end of our season. All year long (and throughout her xc career) Paige has been our #8-9-10th runner. But, last year she turned it on in the big meets and became our #4 runner at regionals, only 30 seconds from being "all-regional." Her 20:32 at regional for 5k was just what our team needed to qualify for our 12th straight MHSAA state finals. We are counting on Paige for a great senior season this year.

Maria Warren - Maria, now a Junior, has steadily improved from her freshman year getting faster and faster and faster, finally becoming a varsity runner in all the big races since the end of her freshman year. Maria is a true testament to how good a runner can become if they work hard enough. In the 8th grade Maria was near the back of the pack in the winter running club group - You'd never know it now as she can bust out a 21 minute 5k in almost any races she competes in.

Noelle Warren - also a Junior, Noelle was on and off the varsity a number of times last season but she did earn her varsity letter with several notable varsity races. Her 21:46 at the BNC finals last year put only about a minute behind our #1 runner and this sort of time on our tough course was definetly her best performance of the season. Noelle, like Maria, always pushes herself to be her best and always logs big summer miles to get ready for the XC season.

meet the team - BOYS

Here is a list of our returning varsity boys team and a quick run down on what they've accomplished.

Charlend Howard - Charlend was our #1 man in many of our varsity races last year, he is now a Junior, has earned All-conference honors in both his freshman and sophomore seasons, and last year was all-REGIONAL in XC at the Benzie course. Charlend logs hundreds and hudreds of miles each season and his best quality is his desire to be the best he can be in xc.

Nate Fischer - also a Junior, nate was the regional champion in the 800m in track (1:58.0) and also our top runner at the MHSAA 16-2 regional last year with a team best time of 16:27. Nate placed 7th, just 1 second behind conference champion Ryan Hearth. Nate was also all conference both his freshman and sophomore seasons. Nates best quality is a combination of both pure talent and hard work.

Jake Pasternak - our senior returning varsity runner has developed from a JV runner as a freshman to our #1 man in his first meet last season. Jake earned all-conference and all-regional honors in track this spring but did not earn them in XC after a knee injury slowed his season progress last season. Jake is a runner who logs many training miles all summer. His best quality is his positive outlook, even when puking on the bus prior to big meets.

Ian Callison - Ian has worked and worked and worked to be the best he can be and has found that XC is his sport. During the track season, Ian found that he just doesnt have the leg speed to compete at the level he'd like to compete at. But, give him 3.1 miles of hills, mud, wind, and he will excel. Ian was very close to being all-regional last season (missed by 34 seconds) and only a few places from being all-conference. Ian's best quality is his hard work ethic.

Sean Hope - Sean is our team captain and returns for his Senior season with an important position - the 5th man. Since team scoring in XC only scores 5 runners, this position is the most important on the team. Sean has been very close to cracking the 17 minute barrier with a solid 17:32 at regionals last year and a 17:15-ish at the elk rapids invite last fall. Sean's best quality is his sense of humor - he keeps things light and loose on the team and his ability to balance a bamboo pole on his hand for long periods of time.

Chris Ryan - as a sophomore last year Chris earned his varsity letter when he replaced a sick Jake Pasternak at the regional meet. during the season chris regularly was our 8-9th man and had times in the mid 18's for 5k. Chris has worked tirelessly to improve and we look for him to end this season in the 17's. Chris' best quality is his hard work ethic.

Next week - Girls "meet the team"!!
