Albemarle High School's Ryan Thomas Ready to Run Track at Columbia

Posted: Updated:

Albemarle High School senior Ryan Thomas is taking his talents to the Ivy League.   Thomas has signed with Columbia University to run track.

Thomas will run primarily the mile at Columbia.   Thomas holds several Albemarle HS school records and this past year was named the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame Student Athlete of the Year.

He has a 4.0 GPA and will pursue a political science major at Columbia.

Thomas says, "I wanted to excel in both the classroom and on the track and I realized I needed a good education to be able to do whatever I want to do after running. If I go into politics I could change things hopefully for the better.

Thomas chose Columbia over Princeton and Stanford.
