Before Oregon: All-American at 5,000 meters and a four-time Colonial Athletic Association champion, including the 2013 800 and 1,500 meter titles, for Northeastern. Ran the second-fastest 5,000 meters in the NCAA in 2013, 13:18.57, before finishing 10th at that distance at the 2013 NCAA Championships at Historic Hayward Field. That personal best was the fastest 5,000 meters ever run by an American under the age of 21 and ranked No. 10 on the all-time collegiate list. Also holds impressive personal bests in the 3,000 meters (7:50.44) and mile (3:58.11). Holds Northeastern’s school record in the mile, 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters. At the 2013 NCAA Indoor meet, initially finished second in the 3,000 meters (7:46 unofficially), but was disqualified in a controversial ruling. Broke the 4:00 barrier at the 2013 Terrier Classic (3:58.11). Was also the 2011 CAA cross country individual medalist and athlete of the year.
