Ellie has always loved to participate in sports, even from a young age. She played soccer and lacrosse for the town of Belmont in early elementary school and joined a youth track program in second grade. Ellie immediately loved running. She continued to run while also competing in club and town soccer, lacrosse and raced alpine skiing for Cranmore Mountain in New Hampshire.

On the cross country trails, Ellie capped off her middle school career with a win at the Mayorís Cup at Franklin Park, setting the course record, and an All American distinction at USATF XC Nationals in 2019. But it is on the track that Ellie really has found her passion. After being off the track for over a year due to COVID, Ellie is excited to be back.

Ellie is a freshman at Belmont High School. In addition to running, Ellie is hoping to participate in a triathlon. She also loves to do anything outside, including hiking, biking, swimming and skiing (both nordic and alpine).

Freshman Outdoor Season, Spring 2021

After posting early season PRís in the mile (4:51.81) and two mile (10:25.79) at the Ocean State Running Invitationals in Providence, Ellie was invited to the adidas Boost Boston Games as one of 10 high school girls to compete in the adidas Girls Dream Mile. Not wanting to waste this opportunity to race some of the best milers from around the country right here in Boston, Ellie was eager to go head-to-head against this great field that was coming to Boston to race her! The course was a USATF-certified winding 804m out-and-back loop with a tight u-turn at halfway.

Ellieís efforts were rewarded with a shiny new mile PR of 4:45.42, a 6-second PR over her 4:51.79 four weeks earlier at the Ocean State Running Invitational on April 24. Ellieís mark is the Massachusetts state record for the freshman girls mile for all surfaces.

Ellie Shea and Emerging Elites teammate Margot Appleton raced together at the USATF Mini Meet #3 at Gordon College on Saturday, June 5. Ellie was aiming to get into a faster race and compete with two of the best athletes in the country. Ellie ran a swift 10:10.49 for 2 Miles, breaking the MA state record held by Ari Lambie since 2003. Ellie ran a 3000m FAT en route in 9:30.64. A special thanks to USATF New England for having a FAT camera set up at 3000m.
