SALEM NEWS BOYS INDOOR TRACK RUNNER OF THE YEAR
Hale capped off an incredible season by winning the New Balance National Emerging Elite two mile race in a personal best 9:18.42. He beat his time at last spring's Outdoor Nationals by almost 18 seconds and set a new school record. The three season track star has been consistently outstanding, rising to the challenge of big meets. He won the D-3 states in 9:34 and was third at All-States in 9:26.
The Big Blue captain went on to place third at New England’s. He was chosen NEC Runner of the Year and will continue his career at Williams College.
“Peter has really come along this year in the way he carries himself,” said Big Blue coach Joe Tenney. “He is a leader by example and goes out of his way to help the younger kids on the team. Peter is very polite to everyone and talks to all of his opponents. I have watched him really mature both as a runner and an individual.”
Hale says the biggest influence on his career the past two years have been his coaches, especially Jeff Bartlett (cross country coach).
“Coach Bartlett is just as crazy about distance running as I am, and he has pushed me every step of my high school career,” said Hale.
