Now in our sixth season, MichiganCrossCountry.com was formed in 2007 by
Dan Wytko and Don Passenger to bring recognition to the sport by
accurately ranking Michigan teams and to provide a venue for discussion
of cross country and track and field issues.

Dan Wytko has coached track & field and cross country at Portage Central
High School since 1994. Don Passenger has been involved in Michigan
track and field since the mid-1970s when he competed at Caledonia High
School and from 2003 to 2011 Passenger coached at Grand Rapids West
Catholic where he finished as the director of cross country.

The MichiganCrossCountry.com Prep Ranking is compiled for each high
school division by a vote of a panel of high school coaches, officials,
and others knowledgeable about our sport who review all available meet
results in an effort to provide the most accurate ranking possible.
Rankers only vote in the division where they have the most experience.
