Varsity Track & Field - Boys
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to coach the young men and women of the Upper School XC and Track & Field teams to greatness in sport and in life. I strive to further the legacy of our friend, Tom Fleming, since his untimely passing in April of 2017. My mission for the team is to help each of them grow year after year, whether they are one of our top athletes or not, and to use the things they have learned, such as discipline, perseverance and confidence, to improve their lives at MKA and beyond.
