Mehari Earns All-Eastern Region Honors
Mehari Earns All-Eastern Region Honors

After a breakout season, which included Conference, County, and State Sectional titles, Livingston High School senior Philmon Mehari was still hungry.

Up until the Group 4 State Championship, he had been outrun by only one athlete in a photo finish with both contestants recorded with the same finish time. He had miscalculated his opponent that day in September, early in the season, and after the race he told his coach, “This won’t happen again.”

Mehari was true to his word week after week, gauging the competition, and winning. At the Group 4 meet, he was dealing with a slight respiratory issue heading into the last three quarters of a mile and lost several places. However, he still finished in tenth plce, automatically qualifying for the Meet of Champions.
