Men’s Cross Country

How long have you been running cross country? 

I’ve I have run cross country since ninth grade.

What has been your biggest accomplishment? 

My biggest accomplishment this year is finishing in the top seven in every race this season and consistently staying in the front pack.

What are some of your personal goals? 

One of my personal goals is to finish in the top 15 at the state meet on Saturday, and also I want to break 16 minutes and finally get in the 15s because my personal record is 16:01, and I’m really close to breaking that 16-minute barrier.

What are some team goals?

Our team goal is to come back next year and finish in the top five at State. We didn’t make it to State as a team this year, but we’re going to bounce back and make it next year.

Any nerves for state?

Yes, I am nervous, but it helps that I ran at State last year, so I have experience of the course and the environment such as the crowd and how competitive the race is with the strong competition. I am a little nervous about the weather, though. I hope it doesn’t end up snowing because the weather is supposed to be in the low 30s.

Favorite memory?

My best memories are all of the runs with my teammates and the friends I have gained from running cross country.
