It was Rosenstein who came in first finishing 15th at state. She could be among the top ten this fall.
Shiloh School District
Scott and Cultra finished in the top During the season, the threesome was as close as 10 seconds to each other. That is the kind of racing that they will need to have during the state series especially at state.
Sophia Dowling was 60 seconds behind the three in most of the races. Hopefully, she can close that gap. The next three runners were another 90 seconds back. A fifth runner close to Downing would help get this team into the top five in November. Notes — It could hurt early in the year that graduated all-state runners Janine Orvis and Kelly Doerr are no longer leading the pack for Crystal Lake Central.
Even with the heavy losses, expect to see this team towards the front again this season. We stuck to the basics of slowly adding mileage, doing some hills, and a little bit of speed. We'll see how fit the girls end up once the season starts. They will need to step into the top five.
Becca Orvis and Alex Scarfe could also step into top five spots. There is a good group of freshmen stepping in. The question is will they contribute right away?
Wilhoit may have a better idea by the beginning of October. There are some open spots in the top 7 and it will be more of a mix of levels, compared to last season. Notes — It could be an interesting year for the Duchesses. They ended last season finishing 10th in the tough Belvidere Sectional. An injury slowed her down in the sectional race as he finished 32 seconds behind Kira Goral. Fazekas was 22 seconds ahead of her teammate at their conference meet.
Taylor Renkes and Halle Nelson were in the top five and should contribute again in The big boost will come from a freshman group that won two IESA state titles and a second-place finish last year.Bhs Region track meet 2016
Another freshman, Jade Miller, could be part of the top seven. The talent is there for this team but it is a young squad. We could see how good this team is in September. They could be tough to beat when we get to the state series. Lakes Community, who was ranked in the top ten most of the season, finished 8th in the race failing to make the trip to Peoria.
Six of their top seven is back led by Olivia Schmitt. As a freshman last fall, she had a tremendous season up to sectionals including running She finished 15th in the sectional failing to make it to state. She rebounded during track earning 3A all-state honors for finishing sixth at meters at the state meet.
The focus was on the positive as the team adjusted to their abrupt end to the season at the sectional championship. The race put into perspective the principles that we talk about throughout the season. We often talk about trusting in our process and controlling what we can. Ultimately, we didn't have the race that we wanted and other teams beat us.
However, despite the heartbreak we can fall back on these pillars and continue to move forward as a together. We will continue to develop our positive mindset and we will be ready to embrace any challenges.
The pack behind Schmitt was 43 seconds on the four runners in the sectional race. It was only 11 seconds at their conference meet with the group 48 seconds behind Schmitt. If that consistency happens during the state series, this could be a team to watch in Peoria. Freshmen Brooke Stromsland and Alex Bryant are runners who could also contribute immediately. We are not deterred by last year's result and are embracing the challenge.
We return 6 of our top 7 and after a successful track season the girls have regrouped. They are refreshed mentally and enter the season with a renewed hunger for success. My main point of emphasis this summer has been that recovery runs are meant to be recovery and run relaxed. The runner that could be a surprise is Marin Schiffman. She did not run last fall but jumped in the High Jump, seconds in the Hurdles, and 62 seconds as a freshman.
Her summer training indicates she could be up front with Drozda. Senior Jaycee Schickel will lead a pack that should be seconds behind the front two.
Closer would be better. We have a few newcomers who will benefit from their leadership. Our goal is always to run as tight of a pack as possible, I feel we have a group of girls that can run fast together which can result in good things come the end of the season. Notes — It could be a rebuilding year for the Rams after finishing fifth in 2A last year. Four runners return from that team. It would have been five but top returner Leah Minsky decided not to return to the team.
Vanessa Olmons and Amy Moore give Centella a strong third and fourth runners. It is possible that this team could have a five-runner split of under 65 seconds. The key is moving the pack up. Apparently, Ruthie trained on her own this summer following our highest volume plan. We should once again be a strong pack team with a small gap. Notes — The Redbirds came on strong at the end of the year finishing seventh in the state meet. They do lose all-state finisher Kari Lalumandier to graduation, but return the rest of their top seven.
Tessa Schwarzentraub was six places back and should challenge for that top position. It could give Coach Gene Jones a strong up front. There will be more pack running this season. There is no real front of the pack runner in this group. Watch the pack move more towards the front this season. A split under seconds for their top five will also pay dividends in November. Notes — Three freshman led the way last fall with some surprising results leading up to the state meet including a third-place finish at the Decatur MacArthur Sectional.
Their inexperience showed up at Detweiller Park when they finished 25th at state. Six of the seven runners come back with hopes that the state experience will pay off in What could help is the return of Gabby Wood.
She injured her hip before their conference meet forcing her out of the rest of the season. She came back to run Varsha Iyer, Shay Doty, and Ella Kurmann are now sophomores and should make some extreme strides forward. This is a team that I would keep an eye on when we get to the state series. The Potters missed making it to state last year finishing seventh in the Metamora Sectional. Meagan Moreno again will be the top runner for this team.
She qualified individually for state finishing 61st. A top 25 finish is not out of the realm of possibility. She led a 19 second two through five spread in the sectional race. The key for this team is getting the pack closer to Moreno. It was close to seconds in their last three meets of the season.
Notes — Wheaton Academy could be making a trip back to the state meet despite losing four runners to graduations. The Warriors finished 18th in 2A. She has gotten stronger over the last year according to her coach Chris Felinski. The team could have a split of 60 seconds on the top five led by Stephanie Gregersen. Alie Dominguez, a freshman, will be a bonus for this team. Notes — Latin School should make it back to state especially since they will be in the weakest 2A sectional in the state at Chicago University.
This team could be among the ten best this fall after finishing 21st a year ago. Their top three are back led by 73rd place finisher Laura Katunas. Marianne Mihas was all-state last year in middle school during the track season.
I would keep my eyes on this team. The potential to have five runners in the top is possible. That could get Latin into the top five. One of the thing that hit the team during the track season was iron deficiency which hit some of the members of the team. The girls have focused on full body fitness, not just running, to get themselves into top shape.
The team ran good the first half of the state series winning the Central State Eight Conference then their regional. Then followed a fourth-place sectional finish then state. There could more focus on the final two meets this year. The split on the top five will need to be under 60 seconds.
The addition of freshman Kiersten Patzia, who was the top runner at the Springfield Christian Middle School, could also help in the top five. Everyone is looking to push to new highs. It will be fun to watch this group in the fall. Notes — In any other sectional, Carmel would be in the hunt to make it to the state meet.
They most likely again will be in the toughest 2A sectional in the state at Kaneland. The Corsairs do return six runners from their 11th place sectional team led by Aileen Hull and Abigail Kudera.
Endurance Race Timing
The addition of freshman Brigid Hull will be a tremendous help. Summer training has indicated that the younger Hull could be the second runner on the team according to Coach Jim Halford. Finding consistency in their top five split will also be important this fall. In their conference meet where they finished fourth, the spread on five was 64 seconds.
It was 28 seconds in their sectional race, but their pack was too far back in the race.
