Trey has improved as a runner year after year, claiming some solid times and performances along the way. His personal records include: 16:05 (3 mile), 4:34 (1600 meters), and 10:00 (3200 meters). Trey will make an immediate impact his freshman year as a Crusader and will be a huge addition to the men's distance program. "Not only is Trey an outstanding runner, he is an exceptional young man.

We are getting both with Trey Stewart."
