Hudson Senior Kyle Mau has been to the OHSAA State XC meet three times. As a Freshman, he was 81st running 16:36.08, as a Sophomore, he was 23rd in 15:50.87 and as Junior he was 3rd in 15:21.93. He is the leading D1 returner. Last spring, he was 2nd in the D1 3200 with a time of 9:03.07. As a Sophomore, he placed 6th in the D1 1600 with a 4:13.19. He is a versatile, "all-around" runner with 2014 goals that, if accomplished, just may establish him as one of Ohio's all time best middle distance/distance runners.
