He's a two-time state champion and he's a New England champion.
Now Ryan Oosting is a national champion!
The Arlington sophomore got his weekend to a rousing start at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor Championship on Friday night. Oosting won the 5,000-meter title inside the North Carolina AT&T Irwin Belk Track with a phenomenal time of 14 minutes, 36.13 seconds. He edged New Balance Indoor titlist Ben Varghese of Tennessee by a mere second. Varghese crossed the line at 14:37.21. A total of eight runners dipped under 15 minutes in the race.
Oosting is not finished yet. On Saturday, he will try and make it twice as nice when he toes the line in the two mile.
