The 5-foot-10, 145-pound junior won the NHIAA Division 1 state meet this past season, breaking the tape with a time of 16.12.20 and leading the Crimson Tide to the program’s first divisional title in over 30 years. He also became the first Concord runner to win the DI state championship since 1963. An All-State and All-New England selection, MacKenzie took 14th at the New England Championships with a time of 16:02.75—the fastest New Hampshire runner in the field—then clocked a 16:52.00 to finish 31st at the NXN Northeast Regional championships. MacKenzie, who ran the state’s fastest 5K (15:29.10) in 2017, captured bronze at the state Meet of Champions with a time of 15:38.20, crossing the line 7.8 seconds off the winning pace.
MacKenzie has maintained a 92.7 average in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school this fall.
A member of the NHIAA Life of An Athlete Student Leadership Committee, MacKenzie has volunteered locally with Best Buddies by pairing fellow Concord students with peers possessing unique learning differences to promote teamwork, empathy and community.
