Luke Ondracek Is DC Bound, Committed To Georgetown Hoyas

Luke Ondracek announced his college destination last week on social media.

Ondracek, one of the state's emerging distance talents, will be District of Columbia bound to suit up for the Georgetown University Hoyas

The Walsh Jesuit representative has been on a tear throughout the duration of his senior XC campaign, tallying four victories, a pair of runner-up efforts and a third place finish in his seven race starts.

His 15:22.5 showing at the Vertical Runner Invite stations him at No. 9 overall in the state-wide rankings.

It was his lone venture out-of-state, though, that might have been his season's premier performance. In New York, at the McQuaid Invite, Ondracek went 14:50.7 over 3 imperial miles, which amounted to an ultra-impressive 190 Speed Rating, per Tully Runners

On the track, Ondracek contests the 800, 1600 and 3200 events and holds all-time personal bests of 2:01.56, 4:25.84 (indoor) and 9:21.41, respectively. His resume includes top 15 placements in the 3200 at both the OHSAA State Track and Field Championships and the OATCCC State Finale during his junior year. 

Ondracek's next competitive opportunity will be this Saturday, where he'll be making his third straight appearance at the OHSAA State Cross Country Championships

We tracked down Ondracek to learn more about what appealed to him regarding the Georgetown program.

"I chose Georgetown because of the amazing program they've built."

"They have a beautiful campus. On top of already having a great team, their freshman class is very talented. I enjoyed visiting the team and felt like it was right for me." 

"I'm really looking forward to practicing with the team next year!"
