|Top-notch runner at George Mason|
By Bruce Reller, Jr., Reporter
Verburg, who went to PCHS in 2008, is going to be a senior at George Mason in the fall. He competes in the 200, the 4 X 4, and his main event, the 400-meter dash.
“Running is a way I take my mind off everything when I step on the track,” Verburg said. “All the problems I might be having melt away and my focus is just on running.”
Verburg was recently named the 2012 Colonial Athletic Association Male Athlete of the Year as he earned first-team All-America honors. He placed fourth in the 400 meters at the NCAA Championship, and was a member of George Mason’s 4X400 relay team that finished seventh.
