With the conclusion of the past season in cross country, indoor and outdoor track for this year there have been several athletes who have made their presence known on the course, around the track and in the field. Stay tuned for more reflections in next few weeks.

Hall’s Trey Cormier entered the 2018 cross country season as one of the favorites for the State Open title after running a 9:08 3200m at the Loucks Games in May 2018. But a foot injury occurred during pre-season and limited most of his season. He was able to come back in time to run the Wickham Invitational where he finished 11th in the Championship race. In the next 35 days he worked his way up to finishing fourth at the Class LL and State Open. But that wasn’t the end of Cormier’s season.

After being told by coach Jeff Billing to "just get out in the front and run hard for 16 minutes", he did just that winning his first New England title in a personal record time of 15:56.6 over the hilly 5000m course at Derryfield Park in Manchester, NH.
