Coloma’s Boden Genovese has emerged as one of the area’s top runners as a sophomore.

Boden Genovese embraced the sport of running from the first time he tried it as a fifth grader.

As a freshman a few years later, the Coloma sophomore cemented himself as the Comets’ frontrunner and has continued to lead Coloma in the early goings of the 2021 season.
