sports---michael-tresA program with many college level athletics historically, Thomas Dale track added another notch to their belt when distance runner Michael Tres announced he will be running at Virginia Wesleyan.

“After visiting and being able to meet with the team and coaches, it was a program athletically I felt would be able to fit in very well with,” said Tres. “It’s also a great academic school that I could attend for the next four years.”

Tres has had a solid senior season so far, with conference, region and state meets on the horizon. This fall, he placed 28th in the Conference 3 cross country meet, placed 10th in the conference for the mile and was a part of Thomas Dale’s 5th place finish in the 4 x 800 relay. Both of the latter two numbers were achieved during indoor season.

Under coach Jay Price, Tres also competes in the 1000m, 1600m and 3200m races, covering all mid and long distance events.

“I know that everyone there is committed to being better runners,” Tres explained. “The program is one where I feel like I can continue to grow and get better.”
