Share article

MEDFORD, Mass. – Former Craftsbury Academy (CA) and St. Johnsbury Academy (SJA) great Charlie Krebs is back on the track for Tufts University in his freshman season this spring.

Krebs finished 23rd in the 800m at the Sunshine Classic last week in Medford for Tufts. It was just the second collegiate track and field meet for the two-time high school champion.

Krebs also saw limited action on the Tufts cross country team this past fall. He won an individual state title in the 1500m as a sophomore for CA and was a key contributor to the Chargers winning their first ever boys’ Division IV state title in 2022.

Krebs finished his high school career with division I powerhouse SJA last spring, helping the Hilltoppers win their third straight division I state title. He won regular season titles for SJA in the 800m, 1500m, and 3000m, as well as several relay titles, none bigger than the state title in the 4X800m.

Krebs and the Jumbos will be back in action at the NESCAC Championships in Somerville, Mass., over the weekend.

Leahy Trending Upwards for Siena

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. – Following an injury riddled senior year for Craftsbury Academy (CA), Cormac Leahy appears to be returning to health with another top 20 finish for Siena College last week at the Rider Invitational.

Leahy competed in his first collegiate 5k, finishing 18th with an impressive time of 15:46.08. The former Charger great was coming off a 15th place finish in the mile for the Saints in the Bison Outdoor Classic two weeks ago. Leahy helped bring the CA boys’ track and field team their first ever overall division IV state title in 2022. He finished his high school career with back-to-back individual 3000m state titles  in his sophomore and junior seasons, including a 4X800m state title with teammates Matthew Califano, Alex Califano, and Linden Stelma-Leonard in 2021.

Leahy and the Saints will be at the Penn Relays on Thursday and the Capital District Classic at RPI on Friday, before heading to the MAAC Championships at Rider University next weekend.
