O'Riordan Named President of Athletic Association

Monday, September 28, 2020

Tom O'Riordan, Landmark High School's venerable varsity cross country and track and field coach, has been elected president of the New England Prep School Track and Field Association (NEPSTA). In his new role, Tom will serve as head of the Cross Country and Track and Field Coaches Association for some 280 NEPSAC schools throughout New England, New York, New Jersey, and Quebec. Tom will continue to coach and teach at Landmark.

"I'm honored and excited to serve as the next NEPSTA president," said Tom. "I'm eager to work with the Executive Board and coaches as we look ahead to offering all NEPSTA athletes the chance to compete again as soon as safely possible." 

A Stellar Record

Tom was named Coach of the Year for fall 2019 by the Eastern Independent League (EIL) and has compiled an impressive 37–5 cross country record and has helped Landmark win five out of the last seven EIL Track and Field Championships. Between the two sports, Tom's teams have won eight EIL Championships, one MBIL (IGC) Championship, and three New England titles.

"Tom takes on this role at a time of uncertainty for all sports throughout our region and it will not be easy," said Landmark Athletic Director Brook Sumner.  "I know he'll be a credit to Landmark!"
