New England Walkers’ Maegan and Nolan Compete at National Scholastic Championships

Hats off to Maegan and Nolan Allen, of Arlington MA, who competed at the New Balance National Scholastic Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina on June 17th.

In the 1-mile race walk, Maegan earned her third All-American award (complete with stylish medal and snazzy crown) with a 4th place finish behind Lauren Harris of New York. Harris set a national high school record during the event. Nolan finished a solid 11th place in the largest boy’s field in years — placing just 3.4 seconds away from 8th place and an All-American award.

The New England Walkers would also like to acknowledge our friends and from Maine who participated.
