Logan Schaeffler, a senior at Calhoun High School on the track team, was recently named the two-time New York State champion for the 1600-meter run.

His journey to establishing himself as one of the top boys distance runners in the state nothing short of extraordinary.

“His unwavering commitment to his sport, coupled with his natural talent and sheer determination, has propelled him to the top of the ranks in the fiercely competitive world of track and field,” noted trustee Edward Corona at the April 3 board meeting where Schaeffler was honored. “Logan's remarkable time of 4:11 not only secured his victory but also stood as the best in the state this year, missing the state record by a mere half-second. Such a feat speaks volumes about his incredible skill and prowess as an athlete.”

Schaeffler’s achievements extend far beyond his recent triumph on the track.

“As a four-year varsity letter winner, he has consistently demonstrated his exceptional abilities, setting records and leaving a legacy that will be remembered for years to come,” added Corona. “Holding both the Nassau County cross-country record and the Nassau County indoor mile record at 4:11, Logan has proven time and again that he is a force to be reckoned with in the world of distance running.”

The board recognition also mentioned his “character, resilience, and humility” that truly set him apart.

“Logan remains grounded and humble, always attributing his success to hard work, dedication, and the unwavering support of his teammates, coaches, and loved ones,” Corona stated.

Schaeffler is set to attend Marist College in the fall to pursue a degree in graphic arts while participating in the school’s track program.
