Noah Brightman caps career with brilliant finish

Read Time:5 Minute, 38 Second


When the team prepared for difficult cross country meets, its coach would sometimes mention in passing a famous quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt: “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”That resonated so much with Noah Brightman, he essentially adopted it as his credo.“You don’t get better when everything comes easy,” said the Pawling High School track and field standout, who won a state championship two weeks ago and starred in a national tournament last weekend. “Things will get tricky at times, but that’s when you’ll improve. You have to embrace the challenges.”

Noah’s career arc included two years of turbulent tides, navigating the challenges brought by nature, before ending the journey triumphantly.Brightman won the boys small-schools 800 meters state championship earlier this month and, last Sunday, he ran the race in 1:54.65 to place second in the New Balance Outdoor Nationals in Philadelphia. The senior finished 0.07 seconds out of first place in the rising stars division.
