Justin Iler '20 named Player of the Year

Justin Iler '20 concluded his outstanding running career at University School with a third-place finish at the Division I state meet in 15 minutes, 26 seconds — his best result in three trips to Hebron. Prior to the state meet, Iler claimed gold medals with victories at the Boardman and Madison District meets. Alongside his individual success, Iler's leadership helped elevate the Preppers' program. University finished 11th at the state meet and recorded the fastest race in program history on the course at National Trail Raceway. During the regular season, Iler's season-best time of 15 minutes, 22.5 seconds ranked as the area's fastest by nearly 47 seconds. A magnificent student in the classroom, Iler applies his intellect to his racing pursuits by researching courses and the most cutting-edge training practices to hone his craft. Iler has interest from high-level Division I programs that also fit his elite academic standards, as he plans to study electrical engineering while running at the next level.
