Martin captured the 3200 in a meet-record time of 8:54.87 and took the 1600 in 4:08.67. At the John Hay Pennsylvania Distance Festival, he set new state records in both the mile (4:03.53) and the 1600 (4:02.15). Martin’s 1600 mark ranked as the nation’s No. 2 personal-best performance among 2021 prep competitors.
Martin has maintained an A average in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school this fall.
Martin has volunteered locally on behalf of food-donation drives and youth sports programs.
