After long journey, Severino finds home in Methuen and track

(Continued)

But his most memorable moment on the track was as a sophomore, when he faced off against brother Kelvin, who is now a member of the National Guard and attends UMass Lowell.

“We were both the third leg of the 4x100 relay,” said Ruddy. “He beat me, but I always remind him that his team got him the baton first. It was great. I had looked forward to that for so long. I wanted to race him so much. It was so memorable. I admire my brother so much, so to race against him to awesome.”

Star student

Severino isn’t just a standout in sports. Ruddy ranks No. 61 in his Methuen High class of 430, and will be attending Stonehill College in the fall to study engineering.

“The first time I visited the school it was with a friend,” he said. “I just fell in love. It became my first choice. It has a great engineering program, and I want to test myself in Division 2 college track. I can’t wait.”
