Last cross country season, we listed Ben Shearer as an athlete to have a breakout season, and oh boy, did he prove us right. Shearer went on to run a 15:03 5K PR and individually qualified for the Nike Cross Nationals (NXN).
COVID-19 didn't allow The Woodlands Christian junior to show too much during the track season, as it ended prematurely.
As the upcoming senior prepares for his final year, he decided to test his current fitness with a 800m time trial; let's just say, he looks good as he ran a mostly solo 1:54 for an unofficial PR.
Makes us think what could have been for the 2020 track season, but now makes the cross season even more optimistic!
