Prior to Hartnell: Elliot ran all four years at San Benito High School for both cross country and track & field. He was a two time CCS Championship competitor for the Balers in cross country. He was seventh as a sophomore at thirteenth as a junior at the MBL Championship. Elliot enjoyed a 27th place finish at the larger PCAL Championship as  senior. In track, a qualifier to CCS in 800m as senior after placing fifth overall at the PCAL Master's Meet. 

"Elliot has been on board since very early in his senior year. Since the moment he committed to Hartnell he's been all in and I appreciate that. This summer he did a great job of laying the foundation to compliment the 800 leg speed he showed as a senior. I think he will really shine this fall and find he's capable of running all distances on the track. Elliot has followed all our pre-season prep to the tee and should contend for a top 7 spot for state and even all-region as a freshman."
