Sutton making mark for Westminster

Aaron Sutton has a passion for strumming chords on his guitar.

Having an ear for music, it wasn't difficult for the 2010 Howland High School graduate and current Westminster College runner to listen to what his college coach, Tim McNeil, was saying.

"A lot of my high school career, I tried to be a front runner," Sutton said. "Probably a lot of that had to do with Mike Garcia being my coach my first couple of years and being confident. Toward the end of high school, especially coach McNeil, was a big proponent of checking your fuel economy. Like saving some and gradually getting faster coming from behind. Instead of blowing all your valves in the first two miles. I apply that to all my races here. Pace smart. Start smart. Finish strong. The biggest thing is it's helped me move up to the next level. College races are much more tactical. You have to go out smart, keep your head in the game with your strategy."
