Schubert All-State

Kelly Schubert finished 29th out of 250 runners in the girls' D3 state finals race on Saturday, Nov. 7th at Michigan International Speedway, earning All-State status. Running in pleasant 50's temperature but with stiff south winds, Kelly ran a time of 20:00.0. Great job, Kelly! See the pictures of Kelly at the finals, joined by teammates Allie, Brian F, Jonny, and former MHS runners Ari Sheffield and Ethan Coppola.

Off to State Finals!

We're on our way to MHSAA State Finals this weekend! Kelly Schubert is the first MHS girl to qualify for the Cross-Country state finals since the 90's! Her time of 19:35 not only got her 3rd place at the regional, but it was also the fastest recorded time of any MHS girl runner in the past decade. She races at 10:30 am Saturday the 7th.

As a team, the MHS girls and boys both took 7th at Regionals in Benzie (10-31-09). For the girls, that's the same finish place as last year (despite having 7 less runners on the team) and for the boys that's a 3 place improvement over '08 - even without the 8 fastest runners from last year's team!

For the girls, Lacey Krolczyk was 23rd (22:05 - PR by a minute!), No'el Solis was 40th (23:39 - PR!), Erin Crothers was 44th (23:52 - PR!), and Courtney Stefanski was 68th (25:37 - just missed a PR and best time since fracturing her foot last month!) Great job ladies!

For the boys, Jarret Deisch just missed the state finals, finishing 19th in 17:55 - not bad for a freshman. Tyler Sievert (19:09), Brian Fisk (20:03), Jonny Bailey (20:04), and Tyler Guzikowski (22:06) all ran PR times, while Markus Kling (20:43) and Nathan Morang (21:04) ran close to their best times, despite the wind, rain, and snow.

Full report on State finals coming Saturday night - hopefully with pictures, now that my laptop has returned!
