With a legendary 4 years of high school running nearly behind him, Peter Visser has spent the last weeks of his high school career trying to win a few more track titles.

During his four years of cross country, indoor track, and track, Visser has found a way to get faster every year. After winning the 3A Cross Country state title his sophomore, junior and senior year and setting records on the track, Visser recently added a national title for the steeplechase, running a 6:09.81 in Mytrle Beach, South Carolina on March 27th.

“I ran a little slower than I would have liked too, but I haven’t run a steeplechase race in about 2 years, so it was a good way to get the rust off. I was hoping for about 15 seconds faster, but I’m still happy with the outcome of the race,” said Visser.
