1. How have you kept yourself busy?
I have kept myself busy by watching The Office on Netflix, working out, and playing video games.
Coach Stuhan has made a positive impact on my life. He pushed me to become a better basketball player and a better person.
6. What is something you will never forget about the 2019-20 cross country/basketball seasons and what were you looking forward to this track season?
I will never forget crushing my previous personal record on the last race of my cross country season. I was looking forward to beating my times and making friends during the 2020 track season.
