The state’s returning Gatorade New Hampshire Player of the Year in cross country, the 6-foot, 140-pound junior distance talent led the Black Bears to the NHIAA Division 2 team title this past season, breaking the tape to capture the individual crown with a time of 15:54.00, the fastest clocking among divisional champions. Cox also won the NHIAA Meet of Champions and the NXR Northeast Regional en route to taking seventh in the Gold race at the national RunningLane Cross Country Championships. His time of 14:18.43 set a personal-best and broke the boys prep state record for 5K. The 2021 NHCC Runner of the Year, a Division 2 All-Star and a RunningLane All-American, he finished No. 9 in the 2021 Dyestat national Top 100 rankings.
Cox has maintained a 101.4 weighted average in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school this fall.
A member of his school’s Student-Athlete Leadership Team (SALT), Cox has volunteered on behalf of the New Hampshire Thunder youth running program. He is also a member of the National Honor Society.
