Running is what Matt Kero loved best. He joined the Duluth Denfeld High School cross country team as an eighth-grader and qualified for three Minnesota Class AA meets, finishing as Northeastern Minnesota's top entrant last fall as a senior.

He ran in the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon five straight years, getting faster each year.

He hoped to be among St. Scholastica's top cross country runners this fall as a freshman.
