Davy Appleton is a talented multi-sport athlete at Portsmouth Abbey. During his freshman year, Davy ran cross country for the first time and wrapped up his season with a 3rd place finish at the EIL Championships and a 4th place finish at the New England Prep Division 3 XC Championships. He also joined the wrestling and tennis teams.

Looking forward to his sophomore year, Davy started training with Emerging Elites in the Summer of 2017 looking to build his endurance and fitness for cross country and wrestling. During his freshman year, Davy's first time running cross country, he placed 3rd at the EIL Championships and 4th at the New England Prep School Division 3.

After training with #ee over the summer Davy was unable to run cross country his sophomore year due to illness. Davy was healthy again in the winter and made it to the National Preps in wrestling.

Determined to makeup for his lost sophomore cross country season, Davy returned to Portsmouth Abbey for his junior year healthy and ready to go! He quickly went out and set the Portsmouth Abbey home course record and only had one loss on the season. Davy won the EIL XC Championships and the New England Prep School Division 3 XC Championships.

For his cross county efforts this fall, the Boston Globe selected Davy Appleton for Cross Country All-Scholastic honors.
