Varsity Cross Country 


 

Q: What do you enjoy the most about your sport?

What I enjoy most about cross country is the bonding you establish with not only your teammates, but also your coaches and other runners you meet at the races.

Q: How do you prepare yourself before a game?

I always listen to music and motivational videos to prepare myself before a race to get pumped up.

Q: What are some challenges you’ve faced as an athlete?

Just like any athlete, challenges I’ve faced is failure and injury, but I never gave up and remained positive.

Q: How does teamwork affect your performance?

Teamwork is the biggest part that affects my performance because Cross Country is a team sport and knowing that 6 other guys are giving me their best they can do, so I’m going to do the same for them.

Q: What are some personal and team goals you have set for the season?

My goals include: be a 2x Cross Country District Champion individually, place top 5 at Regionals, advance to state for the 3rd consecutive year, and place top 10 at the State Meet and Medal.
