Ben Hiromura
Masconomet Regional High School
Next Move: DePaul University Chicago IL
Cross-Country and Distance Teams
Comments by Coach Patrick Mahoney

Ben is one of the best runners in Masconomet track history. His accolades on the track clearly reflect this fact due to broken school records and high school national meet qualifications. However, Ben’s success can be attributed to what he does off the track in addition to all his hard work while on the track. He leads by example and shows our very young team the “right way” to approach track and field. There is no higher compliment than an athlete still affecting a team years after he is gone. Ben approaches the classroom with the same amount of rigor and dedication challenging himself daily in order to get the most of his education.

Next year, Ben will attend DePaul University, where he will compete on their distance team.
