Perhaps one of the most decorated runners in the history of the Boston State track-and-field and cross-country programs, Mark Duggan '77 was the 1976 NCAA Division III champion in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Mark ended his career with the Warriors as a the only four-time All-American in Boston State history. Three of those All-American honors came in the steeplechase, while the fourth came as a member of the cross-country program.
Named the Boston State Most Outstanding Athlete in 1975, Duggan recorded a total of 12 varsity letters and held the program record in the two-, three-, and six-mile runs as well as the 3,000-meter steeplechase, and the 5,000- and 10,000-meter runs. Among his many other accomplishments were a total of six MASCAC championships, four All-New England, and three All-East honors.
Duggan would eventually earn his Master’s degree from Boston State in 1981 and would go on to spend 30 years as an executive at Nike, as Chief Executive Officer and President of Nike Bauer Hockey. During that time, Duggan could continue to compete at the highest level, as he was chosen to represent the United States of America as a member of its cross-country team at The European Championships in Liege, Belgium.
Today Duggan is the CEO of MS Duggan and Associates Consulting in Greenland, New Hampshire, where he resides with his wife Sharon and three children Jennifer, Katherine, and Michael. He also serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the New Hampshire Special Olympics, in which Duggan and his wife have been involved with for many years.
