Oak Hall State Champion Will Continue Running Career at Yale

Oak Hall senior Austin Montini announced his commitment to Yale University last week.

The multi-time cross country state championship school took to Twitter to announce the news. 

The top class 1A recruit is the first Ivy league commit of Florida's class of 2021. Montini holds PR's of 1:55 for the 800m, 4:20 for the 1600m, 9:21 for the 3200m, and 15:20 for the cross country 5k. 

Montini Post-State Chamionship Win in 2019

As he looks to defend his cross country state title this November, Montini will also look to bring home a team title for Oak Hall on the boys side. Recently, he finished ninth in the Championship race at the Alexander/Asics Invitational up in GA, where he ran his new 5k PR of 15:20. He's also brought home a Katie Caples elite win and Alligator Lake title. 

At this point in the season, Oak Hall leads Seffner Christian in the team rankings for the class 1A team title. It will be a close race in November as Montini aims to defend his individual title and bring home a team trophy as a future Yale Bulldog.
