The 5-foot-8, 147-pound junior set state records in the 600-meter run and the 800 during this past indoor season. Kipyego’s 600 time of 1:19.65 at the Boston Holiday Challenge ranked as the nation’s No. 3 clocking among prep competitors during the indoor season, while his 1:52.55 time in the 800 ranked No. 5. Last summer, Kipyego set another state record in the outdoor 800 at the Pan-Am Under-20 Championships with a national-best 1:49.46. He also took second in the 800 at the USATF Under-20 Outdoor Championships.
Kipyego has maintained an A-minus average in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school this fall.
Kipyego has volunteered at the 2019 New England Cross Country Junior Olympics and has donated his time to multiple community service initiatives through his church youth group.
