Ari Silverfine’s final day in class at Belmont High School was back in mid-May while his senior finals and projects are now memories. And this past Sunday, Silverfine received his High School diploma at graduation.
But the resident as one final test to take before he finishes his Belmont High obligations: run really fast.
The three-sport standout will compete in final time in the maroon and white when he toes the line running the 800 meter finals at the New England High School Outdoor Championships being held Saturday, June 13, in Saco, Maine.
Silverfine earned the invitation to race against the region’s best runners by running two laps in a personal best of one-minute, 56.73 seconds at the Middlesex Conference meet on May 19, making him one of the best in the state and New England.
In addition to his PR, Silverfine ran a 1:57.12 in the Massachusetts All-State Championships on June 6.
At graduation, a day after the All-State meet, Silverfine stated he would be looking to drop his best by a significant amount.
“I can and hope to go faster,” he said.
