From an early age, it was clear that Morgan Beadlescomb had his mind set towards achievement. As a student athlete at Algonac High School, Beadleascomb won Michicgan state high school titles in both cross country and track in both his junior and senior seasons. Staying in state, Beadlescomb enrolled at Michigan State, where a stress fracture sidelined his freshman-year campaign.
Having worked through his injury, Beadlescomb improved year-by-year, and by 2020, he took top honors at the Big Ten Indoor Championships in the 5000m, qualifying for the NCAA Indoor Championships. Though that season was canceled due to COVID-19, Beadlescomb picked up right where he had left off, finishing third in the 5000m at the 2021 NCAA Indoor Championships and taking and impressive sixth-place in the final of the 5000m at the 2021 US Olympic Trials.
As a senior at Michigan State, Beadlescomb finished runner-up for the Spartans in both the mile at the 2022 NCAA Indoor Championships and in the 5000m at the 2022 NCAA Outdoor Championships. He left Michigan State as school record holder at 1500m, one mile, 5000m outdoors, and one mile, 3000m and 5000m indoors.
After Michigan State, Beadlescomb joined Coach Ron Warhurst’s training group the move quickly showed to be a good one: in his first outdoor competition of 2023, Beadlescomb won the BAA Boston 5km in an impressive 13:25, making him the fifth-fastest American in history.
Aside from his athletics prowess, Beadlescomb is an excellent student: he earned a degree from Michigan State in electrical engineering and is currently working towards his Masters in the same, with an emphasis in Robotics and Automation.
