Methuen cross country and track standout Mike O'Donnell recently signed his national letter of intent to the University of Connecticut. O'Donnell will compete in XC, Indoor and Outdoor track for the Huskies. The Boston Herald and Boston Globe all-scholastic has had a outstanding prep career thus far and is considered by many to be one of the favorites to capture the state title in either the mile or 1000m races during this indoor season.
In cross country he is the two-time Merrimack Valley Conference runner of the year and the Division I Eastern Mass Champion. More recently he ran in the junior invitational mile at the New Balance Grand Prix finishing 5th running 4:17.20.
