Anastasia-Murphy looking to close out brilliant career in style

Gloucester senior Liam Anastasia-Murphy is wrapping up a very successful career with the Fishermen as a distance specialist and will be looking to continue his career at Division 1 Boston University or William & Mary in the fall.1 Photo

If you take a look at the high school track career of Liam Anastasia-Murphy, it's easy to see why he is a Division 1 college prospect.

For starters, Gloucester's senior captain is the school's record holder in the 1,000-meter run with a time of 2:30.25. He also boasts the honor of Northeastern Conference Most Valuable Player in both cross country and indoor track this year. If that were not enough, he was the Class B state champion in both cross country and the 1,000-meter run this year, and was also a part of the All-State champion 4x800 relay team this winter with Austin Souza, Alex Trotsky and Andrew Ryan.
