Mary — who began competing in track & field at the age of 13 — was a sprinter and hurdler for the Crimson, twice winning the Indoor Heps title in the 60-meter hurdles (2003, 2006). As a high schooler in Richmond, R.I., she owned four state records in the hurdle events and claimed 10 individual state titles in indoor and outdoor track. Following her Harvard career, she competed for the University of Massachusetts for the outdoor 2007 season as a first-year graduate student and placed in the top three in both the 100- and 400-meter hurdles at the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship. She served as a volunteer assistant coach at UMass for sprints and hurdles while she finished her master’s degree in environmental engineering. Now a resident of Reading, Pa., Mary works as an environmental engineer at Weston Solutions, an environmental consulting company based in West Chester, Pa. She is still running, but now has adapted to the longer distances over her local hilly trails with her fellow Pagoda Pacers.
