He won this year’s individual Class A title in cross country, won three individual titles in indoor track and three individual titles in outdoor track and helped Brunswick win Class A team championships in indoor and outdoor track.

Geoghegan also won the boys’ 1,600 at the New England outdoor track championships. At the New Balance national championships in Greensboro, N.C., over the weekend, he placed ninth in the mile with a time of 4:12.76 and 20th in the championship 2-mile run, finishing in 9:22.71.
