Maldari previously wrote his name into the school’s record books as a member of the 4x800 relay that ran a Warrior-best 7:53.75 two years ago and last season ran an 8:01.49 at New Balance Nationals.
“He has been a key member of this teams,” Comeau said. “He had the opportunity to run with guys like (Ryan) Cooney and (Simon) Voorhees and (Will Klein). This season, he really had to push himself this year. That’s a tribute to his commitment to track and breaking the school record.”
Maldari’s dedication and accomplishments earned him the 2013 Andover High Robert McIntyre Award for Excellence in Athletics. Next up, Maldari will be going to UMass Amherst where he will run track.
“I am so proud of everything he has accomplished,” Comeau said. “Andover has a terrific track tradition, and to break a record is something special.”
