How do Freshman runners fare at the varsity level? Mark Stonecipher Aug 16, 2011

How do Freshman runners fare at the varsity level?  How do they transition from the 2-mile, Middle School distance, to the 3.1 mile varsity distance?  Obviously, there are some very talented Middle School runners, but statistics indicate that very few step up as Freshman into the varsity spotlight.  At last year’s OHSAA Cross Country Championships, in all six boys and girls divisions, a total of 883 runners competed.  Of the 883, 98, just 11% of the runners were Freshman.  A closer look at the Freshman statistics for each of the divisions is interesting, but what are the reasons that we don’t see more Freshman faring well at the varsity level?  There may not be a simple answer, but the statistics do indicate that there is a definite maturation that takes place; physically, mentally and in experience, and that there is even a more distinct difference between the boys and the girls as they transition from the Middle School to the High School level.
