Winter is for running
The Summit’s robust running programs have a winter sport in indoor track, and that distinction sets the school apart from its Miami Valley Conference and Greater Cincinnati peers. The objective of the season is to prepare distance runners and sprinters for the upcoming spring season.
Athletes spend time in the weight room following individualized training programs based on their event focus. "The Summit XC/TF program is an extension of my family and it has been since I was in high school," Coach Moore says. "We have a reputation of producing fantastic student-athletes and I will do anything within my power to help keep the program running smoothly and to continue our track record of excellence (no pun intended)."
Coach Mason Moore '15 is the head coach for Grades 5-12 indoor track during the winter season. He is assisted by Kim Horning, Kurtis Smith and Sam Rhodes. In the fall Coach Moore is an assistant coach for cross country and in the spring, he is an assistant coach for track and field at The Summit. A two-time OHSAA State Champion in the 1600m race (‘14, ’15), he led Summit to a runner-up finish at the 2015 OHSAA Division III State Cross Country Championships. He continues to hold the School record in four events. After graduating in 2015, he competed in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track for Xavier University. He has been coaching since 2019.
