The Boston Athletic Association proudly recognizes the B.A.A. Scholastic Mile Class of 2020 and Middle School 1K Honor Roll. Sixty-four middle and high school athletes from the cities and towns along the Boston Marathon route have been named to the lists, which celebrates student-athletes who were selected to represent their hometowns on Boston Marathon weekend.
“We at the B.A.A. applaud each and every student-athlete for earning the opportunity to represent their town and team on the Class of 2020 and Honor Roll lists,” said Tom Grilk, Chief Executive Officer of the B.A.A. “These student-athletes deserve celebration and recognition for what they have accomplished both on and off the field of play. Not only are they some of the most accomplished runners in the area, but also very hard workers and students.”
The 12th annual B.A.A. Scholastic Mile and Middle School 1K athletes were nominated by coaches and selected by the B.A.A. to represent their hometowns based on their athletic and leadership achievements. The races, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 18 but canceled due to COVID-19, are staples surrounding the Boston Marathon.
In lieu of the traditional competition, which starts and ends at the storied finish line on Boylston Street, this year’s athletes have participated in weekly “Track Tuesday” video conferences hosted by the B.A.A. featuring professional athletes and coaches from the B.A.A. High Performance team. All athletes will receive certificates of recognition and running gear from adidas.
Of the 32 high school scholastic milers, 21 are graduating high school seniors. All 21 plan to pursue higher education in the fall.
