Daniel Trettel

​Daniel started track his sophomore year of high school to get in better shape for soccer. It wasn’t long, however, until his priorities changed and ultimately led to several Maryland 1A state titles. While not recruited, he managed to walk-on to the team at the University of Maryland, College Park where he eventually became team captain and set the school record in the indoor 800m at 1:50.17 during his senior year. Daniel is currently a PhD biochemistry student at UMD and looks to continue lowering his PRs in events from the 800m to the 8k.
