Summer Training Blog: Charlie Sweeney (Entry #5)

MileSplit Maryland is asking several of the top state's top returning cross country runners to share with us their summer training leading up to the 2016 XC season. Interested in blogging for us? Email us HERE.

Northern-Calvert rising senior Charlie Sweeney emerged in 2015 during his first cross country season as a solid #2 behind Matt Bennett. Sweeney finished second at the SMAC Championships and ninth at the 3A State Championships, while recording a personal best of 16:33.50 at the Seahawk Invitational. He kept his momentum through the track season, where he lowered his 3200 person best by almost 40 seconds to 9:41.99. With his former teammate Bennett off to college, Sweeney enters the 2016 cross country season as Northern's #1 runner and one of the top runners in 3A.
