Fairfield Prep junior Drew Thompson from Trumbull was named SCC Cross Country Runner of the year for the second straight season.
After a very impressive sophomore year as the top runner in the SCC, Thompson took it to another level this year, finishing first in the SCC Championship meet and second in both the CIAC Class LL championship meet and the State Open meet.
In addition, Thompson finished first in the prestigious Thetford Invitational and first in the Wilton Invitational. At the end of the season Thompson won the Jesuit High School Championship and also finished 10th in the Foot Locker Regional Race, which earned him a spot in the Foot Locker National Championship race.
His outstanding resume has earned Thompson recognition as SCC runner of the year, All-SCC and All-State, as well as being named as a finalist for the CT Gatorade Runner of the Year.
Thompson will now focus his efforts on the upcoming National Championship race in San Diego, as well as competing with the Fairfield Prep indoor and outdoor track teams.
Thompson has taken the strongest course of study available in each of his Prep years, achieving magna cum laude honors by earning a 3.9 GPA and qualifying for induction into Prep’s National Honor Society.
