The News Journal’s Brad Myers wrote a great article on the secret behind the success of the running program at the Tatnall School in Wilmington—its coach, Pat Castagno. On “National Signing Day” this past week, five of his current protégés signed running scholarships for college. This is an amazing thing for a school with such a small population. But Castagno, a product of the coaching of CRR Jim Fischer at Delaware, has done amazing things with Tatnall’s program, recognized as one of the best nationally.
Two former Tatnall runners, siblings Molly and Sam Parsons, are scholarship runners at Richmond and North Carolina State, respectively. They are CRR George Parsons and CRR Christina Parsons’ kids.
