Running Accomplishments:

Freshmen Year-  When I started on Uintah I really didn't know how I would do. Ran a 5k or two and then just started running with the team. The older kids really liked me and called me the good freshmen. I then made varsity, which kinda ticked Nathan off but I was happy with it. Time trials I ran like 18 flat. Along with Mason,Connor, and other people. The first few races went really good then I went to the doctor and he told me to get fat because he thought I was too skinny so the second part of my season was pretty crappy. I didn't get to go to state and was ticked because Nathan beat me at region.


Sophomore Year- This was the year that I got that dark Cherokee blood running through me and then I decided to just haul butt the whole season because I was ticked at what happened to me freshman year. The first few meets of cross country and the whole season was great. I was able to go to state and got a low seventeen for 3 miles. And track went better too. Because normally I love cross country more than track. It was a pretty good year for this Cherokee kid.

Coming into today. I didn't know if this would be my last crosscountry race or not. I just came into the race menatlity that I can do this, we can do this. I believed that we would have a chance at making it to state. Got to the course and walked half of it, which was nice because I wanted to make sure that I knew where I could hug the inside lane of the course as much as possible. Warmed up and got to the line. I was excited and not really nervous. I wanted to enjoy this race and at the same time put everything I had into it. Got out really good today and was right up in the top 10-15 spots. Hit the mile in 5:17, which wasn't ideal, but it happens. Kept pushing and came through the second mile in 10:56. I was feeling really good up until this point in the race. I then started having some tightness in my legs and just couldn't keep the pace I had held really well for the last two miles or so. I thought that Salem Hills was the team that we had to really target on, but it turns out they were way ahead of us. I kept thinking in my mind that we could do it. I didn't know what would happen, but I tried to push that last 800. Finished in 17:13. I was told that it is alittle over 3 miles and not quite a 5k so I put it in as 3.05. Well thats it. My high school crosscountry career has come to a end. It really has been the best four years of my life so far, and I have learned alot through it. I really am going to miss racing and practices. It's been a good ride. S/O to Kedric and Rylie for making it to state, and for the entire team making my last year an awsome experience.
