Boys Junior Varsity Cross Country, Boys Varsity Cross Country · Vote LD Athlete of the Week (Oct. 22-29)

Ethan Stover, Hartland boys cross country

Stover had never reached the Division 1 state finals, the closest the senior came being a 20th-place finish last season. Well, he changed that this past weekend, completing his run in 16:18.7 — a personal-record time for the 12th-grader — to take 10th and earn a trip to the state meet.

Jack Wurzer, Pinckney football

It was no doubt a disappointing end to a second straight fantastic season, the Pinckney football team falling, 24-23, to Livonia Churchill in the first round of the playoffs last week, thus ending its season. But Wurzer had one last phenomenal performance to keep the Pirates in it. He was 17-of-22 passing with 206 yards and two passing touchdowns while rushing an additional 13 times for 47 yards and a third score. For the season, Wurzer threw for 1,749 yards and 18 TDs, attempting 162 passes without allowing an interception. On the ground, he ran for 410 yards and eight TDs.

Lindsey Witte, Brighton girls cross country

A state-meet-qualifying swimmer and runner-up to the girls cross country individual regional title last season, Witte is continuing to make strides in both sports during her sophomore campaign. This past week, it was in the latter sport, where Witte led the Bulldogs to a team regional championship with her fourth-place finish at the meet. Witte clocked an 18:50.7, leading the charge in Brighton edging Pinckney for the team title. Witte will run at the state meet, and will also be swimming as well, having long ago hit the state cut times in her events.

Nick Cain, Pinckney football

The season didn’t end the way Cain or his teammates wanted, a 24-23 loss to Livonia Churchill on Friday night in the first round of districts. That said, Cain gave everything he had, using his versatility as a defensive back, wide receiver and returner to keep the score close and give the Pirates a chance. The senior had eight catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns, giving him 13 for the season, nine more than any other Livingston County player.

Chris Davis, Fowlerville boys cross country

Davis excelled in his Division 2 regional meet last weekend, racing his way to a third-place finish to advance to the D2 state finals. Davis held first for much of the race, before two passed him and he ultimately secured the bronze with a time of 16:38.3. Davis became Fowlerville’s first three-time state qualifier in 22 years since the cross country state finals have been held at Michigan International Speedway.
