2010 Kenowa Grad completes Freshman College year with honors

2010 Kenowa Grad completes Freshman College year with honors

Reed Kamyszek, 2010 Kenowa Hills graduate, completed his freshman year at Syracuse University in NY with a 4.0 GPA. Even though he is finished with his academics for this year, he is still at school until the 25th of June for track.

Reed said, “I do not have any races scheduled as of now until USATF Junior Nationals, where I will be running in Eugene, OR, at Hayward Field, in the 5K on Saturday, June 25th. I feel like I have done well my freshman year with big personal records in the 5K (14:26) and 3K (8:20) on the track.

My cross country did not go as well as I hoped for, as I felt like I didn’t come around until near the end of the season. I had a decent race in San Diego where we raced the USATF Junior XC Nationals, where I placed 13th in the 8K with a time of 25:32.

My coaches are pleased with my performances, especially during indoor season, when I posted some fast times at Boston University indoor track.
