Cox high school standout runner Jon Lomogda has verbally committed to Yale University, he said Sunday.
Lomogda became the first South Hampton Roads male runner to win a cross-country state title since 1984 when he won the 6A championship on Nov. 13.
The senior has dominated his competition all season. His performances this year include a personal record of 14:56 on Oct. 17 at the MileStat.com Cross Country Invitational. He has lost to only two runners this season, one being Loudoun Valley’s Andrew Hunter — the nation’s fastest cross-country runner.
Lomogda will compete Saturday at the Foot Locker South Regional meet at McAlpine Greenway Park in Charlotte, N.C. A top-10 finish would earn him a trip to San Diego for the Foot Locker National Championships on Dec. 12.
