Coach Marcus Pass and his Leo Lions cross country runners have spent the last two years looking for the next Sir Laurence King. They may have found him in Rich’ard Coleman, who as a freshman in 2017 won the individual championship of the Catholic League White Division frosh-soph meet.

Leo has a strong history in cross country, and King was one of the Lions’ most accomplished runners. He qualified for the state meet as a junior in 2014 and again as a senior in 2015, achieving all-state recognition for his 12th-place finish among more than 150 runners from throughout the state. Sir Laurence accepted a scholarship to UIC for cross country and track upon graduation from Leo in 2016.

Since King’s departure, Coach Pass has been working with younger runners in an effort to develop and sustain a competitive program at all four grade levels. Progress has been steady and encouraging.
