Runner of the Year Matthew Centrowitz, Broadneck After spending his freshman year on the Bruins' junior varsity soccer team, Centrowitz proved that his decision to switch to cross country was a good one.

Centrowitz captured wins at the Anne Arundel County (16:23.7), Class 4A East region (15:16) and state (16:38)

NEW YORK --Matthew Centrowitz represents a wave of America's track and field future. The Broadneck High senior's time of 4 minutes, 3.40 seconds in the mile - racing against a field of internationally elite runners - in the Reebok Grand Prix meet last night at Icahn Stadium moved him into 15th place on the all-time ranking of American high school milers. At the same time, Baltimore's James Carter - the two-time Olympian out of Mervo and Hampton University - refuses to be relegated to America's track and field past.

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Runner of the Year Matthew Centrowitz Broadneck A sinus infection was the only thing that slowed Centrowitz in a remarkable season for the junior, who took the cross country scene by storm last fall. The respiratory problem contributed to Centrowitz's third-place outing in the elite division at Bull Run, but he refused to use it as an excuse. Instead, he channeled that defeat into motivation for the postseason, which he swept for the second year in a row. Centrowitz took home top honors at the Anne Arundel County, Class 4A East regional and state championships.
