A member of the talented Class of 1976, Bill Lennon was a standout in both cross country and track.  Although he was first team all county in cross country, he enters our Hall of Fame in the sport of track —  where he established himself as the most successful half-miler in school history.

Bill Lennon was one of the all-time dominant performers in two events — the 880 and the mile.  In his senior year, he was ranked in the Top 3 in the state in both events.  He did not lose a race in either the 880 or the mile until the state championship—where he placed fourth in the mile and runner-up in the 880.

His best 880 time of 1 minute, 53 seconds – run at the Atlanta Track Classic.  He had the best time posted by any Florida high school runner during the 1976 track season.

Bill was first team all-county and all-Catholic and received a track scholarship to Miami-Dade Community College.  At Miami-Dade, Bill earned National Junior College Athletic Association first-team All-America honors in the 800-meter run.   His time of 1:50 at the national championship was good enough for fifth in the nation.

After college, Bill transitioned to become a successful marathon runner.

Today, Bill lives just outside of Austin, Texas where he works as a business consultant.
