Lukasz Olenginski

Lukasz started running in middle school because all his friends were doing it, and by his sophomore year of high school he had fully devoted himself to running and never looked back.  Luk had a successful high school career, running the second fastest 800 in the state of Pennsylvania his senior year, and with his twin brother Greg, won the 4 x 800 state title.  At Franklin & Marshall College, he and Greg won four outdoor Centennial Conference 4 x 800 titles and an indoor DMR, set 3 school records in relays, and Luk set the school record in the 800 outdoors.  Luk’s goal is to improve his PRs at 800 and 1500, and try his hand at longer distances on the track.  Luk is currently pursuing a PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Maryland, College Park.
