What is your favorite part of track?

“Even [though] sports can get hard with school work and other things going on in your life, sports can actually be a stress reliever and can help you relax and enjoy yourself.”
What are your goals for this season?
“My goals were to place well in both indoor and outdoor conference. Both goals were accomplished and I am happy with my senior year of track.”
What has been your favorite memory from this season so far?
“Geting kicked out of New Trier at conference because apparently at New Trier they don’t allow people from other schools to be inside [the school].”
What are your plans for track after high school?
“I’m not going to continue running at the competitive level in college but I will probably join an intramural team.”
Do you have any pre-meet rituals?
