WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU TAKE AWAY WITH YOU AS YOU LEAVE HIGH SCHOOL?
“Most of them were this year competing. This year going to the state meet and winning the state meet was very overwhelming for me. The last past few years we slowly inched closer to state and we finally got it. Also for cross country we went to Corpus Christi, so after a hard race in the humidity we were able to go to the beach and play at the beach for a little bit.”
WHAT HAS SCHOOL BEEN LIKE DURING THE PANDEMIC?
“It’s been tough being online and being away from everyone, it was hard. At the same time, I knew I had my friends and my brothers just a click away. I also got to see everyone when meeting for cross country, we tried to stay safe and meet at different places so we can practice together.”
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW STUDENTS?
“Make a balance between athletics and school. For running, we have to constantly train everyday so you need to think what assignments you have to do, along with what training with my team and my brothers. Balance it out and make it even.”
