XC, Indoor & Outdoor Track Distance Teams
Comments by Coach Patrick Rich

Kieran Kinnare is the best athlete I have had the pleasure to coach. As one of the top distance runners in the state, he has excelled at the state level in events from the 600m to the 5k. He recently ran the third fastest time in the nation this year in the 3000m steeplechase. Kieran has the rare ability to compete in both distance and jumping events. He is the Ipswich High School record holder in the 600m, 1000m, 1 mile, and 2 mile indoors, and the 400m hurdles and 800m outdoors.

He is equally relaxed and intense about his running; never one to overdo it in a workout, he does just what is prescribed, but he always leaves it all on the track when it comes to race day. He was one of two runners in the state to qualify for All-States in both the mile and the 2-mile this past indoor track season.

Next year, Kieran will contribute his versitilty at Cornell University.
