Abby VanderKooi and Adelyn Ackley are up for consideration along with six other elite athletes from throughout the country. VanderKooi scored a dominant win at this past Saturday's Muskegon Catholic Central Invite with her 16:57.65 clocking. This result represents a Michigan No. 1 and a US No. 2 for the 2018 campaign. She won the race by well over two minutes.
The Muskegon Western Michigan Christian freshman is two for two thus far in high school competition; she also secured first place at the Orchard View Cardinal Invitational during the opening weekend of the season due to her 17:05.10 effort.
Adelyn Ackley got her senior year off to an outstanding start by winning the Benzie Pete Moss Invitational with her Michigan No. 2 and US No. 3 time of 17:03.80. This is the third time she's taken the victory at this meet.
