St. Albans junior named Gatorade D.C. Runner of the Year

Thomas Harrison, a junior at St. Albans, was named the Gatorade D.C. Boys' Cross Country Runner of the Year on Thursday.
The award, which recognizes outstanding athletic achievement, high standards of academic success and exemplary character on and off the track, qualifies Harrison as a finalist for the Gatorade National Runner of the Year award.
Harrison, an All-Met this past fall, won the IAC Championship meet, the Woodberry Forest Invitational, the Battle of the Potomac Championship, and finished third at the Maryland/D.C. Private School championships.
"Tom is a pillar on our team because of his work ethic, his strength of character, and his mindfullness of the whole," said St. Albans Coach Jim Ehrenhaft. "He's an exceptional runner and human being. As successful as he's been individually, his greatest value has been reflected in the team's success this year."
Harrison is the second St. Albans runner to win the award. Nick Bax was named Gatorade D.C. Runner of the Year in 2007-08.
