Athlete of the Week: Richard Sturtevant '19 - Record-Shattering Run

Richard Sturtevant '19 (Leyden, MA)
Boys' Cross Country

Oct. 1, 2018

With strong competition that included one of New Hampshire's top runners as well as the defending NEPSTA Division I champion, Richard took first place in our home invitational with a stunning time of 15:54. In doing so, he shattered the previous course record by 25 seconds. That record, set by Mohamed Hussein '14, had stood for five years. To put that into context, there have only been 30 sub-17-minute runs during the 10-year history of our course.
