We just got word from Rob Conroy, Walt Whitman High School cross-country/track and field coach, that Mike Damato, Whitman class of 2013, was named the University of North Florida Track and Field's Athlete of the Year as a freshman. At Whitman, Mike was a standout runner, earning all-state honors for cross-country in his senior year. Congratulations, Mike!
