Players to Watch: Track’s Alex Fleury ’20

Coming off a successful indoor track season, Junior Alex Fleury ’20 will have the chance to be a strong contributor to the Boys’ Outdoor Track and Field team this spring.

Growing up in North Andover, Mass., Fleury has been running since the sixth grade. His previous running experience has already helped him succeed on both the Cross Country team and the Indoor Track team. This season, Fleury intends on running in the 400-Meter, 800-Meter, 1500-Meter, and 3,000-Meter races.

Currently, Fleury holds the Andover indoor track mile record for a Junior with a time of 4:32:39 minutes. Last year, Fleury also competed at the Massachusetts All-State Outdoor Championships and the New England Outdoor Track Championships and placed 5th in both competitions. Recently, he placed 24th in the New Balance Nationals Indoor Championships.

Teammate Jacob Buehler ’19 said, “Alex Fleury is one of the hardest working and most promising young track runners I’ve ever seen. Every day, he comes to practice and gives each workout his full effort. He never complains that a workout is too hard or a run is too long — instead, he sees it as a challenge to overcome.”

“It is a whole new experience on a whole new track that I am looking forward to! In outdoor track, I hope to set the freshmen records in the [1500-Meter] and [800-Meter], though I don’t usually run the [800-Meter]. I am looking forward to the new faces and friends to meet in the new track season,” said Fleury.
