Martin Blog (7/6): 2021 Corner Conference Cross Country Preview

(KMAland) – Tuesdays all through the mid year we will get you (and me) charmed with region gatherings in volleyball and crosscountry.

The current week’s see investigates the Corner Conference in crosscountry. In the first place, in the event that you missed it…


With regards to crosscountry in the Corner Conference, it’s hard to assemble a group that can score focuses at some random meet. These are the absolute littlest schools in the state, and you’re as of now seeking competitors with grounded sports — football and volleyball.

So, there isn’t a Corner Conference meet to think back on and audit and see the top competitors from that meet. Notwithstanding, I had the option to glance through some state qualifying meets and other region meets from last year to direct this. It’s anything but’s a note that Stanton doesn’t yet have a crosscountry program and will not this season. On with it…

Note: For the Corner Conference, we will utilize a group by-group design. That won’t be the situation for different meetings.


Mentor: Joe Wortman

Young ladies: The Wolverines had one sprinter last year in junior Megan Wells, whose 27:39.27 was the quickest an ideal opportunity for a Corner Conference young ladies sprinter at a state qualifying meet.

Young men: On the kid’s side, they had a lovely sound gathering with youngsters Jerett Jentzsch, Anthon Obermiller and Thoren Wade and sophomore Steven Barrett all running last season. At the state qualifier, Obermiller had the quickest time among the group of four with a 21:55.69. Jentzsch (22:12.73), Barrett (23:08.55) and Wade (27:12.42) likewise ran at the SQM.


Mentor: Jasmine Glasgo

Young ladies: According to Varsity Bound, two young ladies were out last season with sophomore Emma Barrett driving the way. Barrett ran a 29:31.36 at the state qualifier, which end up being the second-quickest time among Corner sprinters at a SQM. Junior Tori Sample was likewise recorded on the list, yet she didn’t run at the SQM.

Young men: Now we’re talking. The Trojans promoted the greatest program among all Corner groups on Varsity Bound with eight names. Four of them ran at the SQM with sophomore Tony Racine running a 23:07.43. Others are seniors Lukas Janecek (23:07.62) and Dylan Barrett (26:40.63) and sophomore Payton Ashlock (29:30.79). Moreover, seniors Isaiah Kline and Brice Sederberg, junior Jacob Robinette and sophomore Izaiah Flowers were recorded on last year’s program.


Mentor: Owen Pitt

Young ladies and BOYS: This is the place where I embed a palms to the sky emoticon. The Knights didn’t have any young ladies last year, as indicated by the Varsity Bound list, and the two young men they had were the two seniors. Thus, this one is an unavoidable issue mark.


Mentor: TBA

Young ladies: The Tigers could return three sprinters from last season, driven by junior Maddy Main. Primary didn’t run at the SQM, yet she posted a 27:22.90 at an Atlantic meet somewhat prior in the season. That time would have been the quickest among Corner young ladies at a SQM, in spite of the fact that it’s significant all courses are not fabricated something very similar. Moreover, junior Bailey Baucom and senior Grace Cook were recorded on last year’s Varsity Bound program.

Young men: Junior Jeremy Sheeder had the fourth-quickest SQM meet time among Corner Conference young men, posting a 23:04.97. Senior Kyler Navarro didn’t run at the SQM, however his name was recorded on last year’s Varsity Bound list.


Mentor: Steve Meyer

Young ladies: Coach Meyer had two underclassmen on last year’s Varsity Bound program, and the two of them ran at the SQM. Junior Grace Zach ran a 30:04.80 while sophomore Kandra Laumann added a 31:41.57.

Young men: Senior Kyle Beam had the quickest time at SQMs among Corner Conference young men sprinters. He had a 21:11.63 and would be viewed as the top sprinter in the Corner Conference heading into the season. Sophomore Wil Bryant is another for the Cowboys. He got done with a 29:12.11 at the SQM.


East Mills: The Wolverines might just have the option to place a score on the board in young men crosscountry this year. That all relies upon adding to the program with approaching frosh or something else. On the young ladies side, Wells will be in the blend as one of the top XC young ladies in the alliance.

Essex: Coach Glasgo has her competitors amped up for the game. I can tell that with the enormous number of young men that were on the program last season. On the off chance that they keep on trying sincerely and return out, they additionally could post a group score the entire season. The young ladies list is little, yet it’ll merit watching the development for Barrett from last year to this year.

Fremont-Mills: We’ll know all the more soon enough.

Griswold: Maddy Main might just be the top young ladies sprinter in the gathering this season, and it will be captivating to watch her proceed to improve and advance. On the young men side, additionally a little gathering could bring back two from last year.

Sidney: Kyle Beam’s movement from last year to this is the storyline of the gathering, as he put down a strong time in his last race last year. How much quicker would he be able to go? What’s more, is there another lovely strong distance sprinter they can include back along with everything else?
