On May 7, 2021, Germantown Academy senior Robert DiDonato '21 broke the all-time Pennsylvania state record in the boys 3,200 meters with a time of 8:44.98 at the 16th Henderson Invitational.
DiDonato, bound for Stanford University, broke Paul Springer's 2007 all-time outdoor state best of 8:49.84, which also came at the Henderson Invitational. It also takes down Craig Forys' (Colts Neck, NJ) meet record of 8:46.04 from that same 2007 race as Springer. Forys time still stands as the New Jersey state record.
"It's not an independent state record, it's anyone-ever [record[ from Pennsylvania is just really cool because it doesn't happen all the time that we get a chance to go and race kids from schools outside of our own," said DiDonato.
