Athlete of the Week
September 30 – October 4, 2013
Alex Greenberg has helped lead the unbeaten Hyde Phoenix to wins over all of the MAISAD schools in the first three weeks of competition. Alex finished in 5th place in the opening meet at Gould Academy and followed up that performance with a 3rd place finish at Hebron Academy. A driven runner, Alex attended the Boothbay Harbor Fest 5k and finished 4th overall out of 143 runners. He was first in his age group running a time of 17:55 with (5:47 mile splits). This week in the fields of Kents Hill, Alex remained hard at work contributing to the Phoenix win over Hebron, Kents Hill, Gould and Seacoast. A day later, Alex joined his teammates and coaches in running the Maine Marathon Relay. He ran the 8.8 mile leg and led his team to a 3rd overall finish out of 80 relay teams.
Alex does not take days off. He is a spirited athlete who gives his best effort at practice as well as meets. He is emerging as a positive member of the Hyde Community, on and off the field.
