Pembroke’s Gallagher to start running career at Northeastern
The Boston Globe - 08/16/2012
While many high school graduates spend their summers relaxing and unwinding before they depart for college, former Pembroke High cross-country standout Wesley Gallagher runs a demanding 70 to 75 miles per week.
For the state’s Gatorade Cross-Country Runner of the Year last fall, it’s all in preparation for his freshman year at Northeastern University, where he will run cross-country, and indoor and outdoor track for the Division 1 Huskies.
Northeastern cross-country coach Renny Waldron “gave me a running schedule, and I’ve followed that down to the point every day,” Gallagher said.
