Multiple Teams · Committed to Excellence — Connecting with Brock Hearth


Today we are going to check in with sophomore Brock Hearth.   Hearth plays four sports for Kent City: varsity soccer and cross country in the fall, junior varsity basketball in the winter, and varsity track and field in the spring.   In cross country, Hearth earned Honorable Mention All-Conference this past fall, helping Kent City win their fourth consecutive CSAA Silver championship.   Last spring, Hearth competed mainly in the 800m, 1600m, and was part of the 4x800m relay for the conference champion track and field team.    In addition to sports at Kent City, Hearth is also a member of a local travel hockey team.

1. How have you kept yourself busy?
I have kept myself busy by going fishing, working out, and watching Netflix.

2. What do your at home workouts look like?
My at home workouts are mainly lifting and bike riding.
3. What do you miss most about school?  Why? 
Some things that I miss most about school are sports and my friends. I miss sports because they kept me busy and it was always fun to hangout with people on the team.
4. What book are you reading?   Would you recommend it to a friend?  Why or Why not?   
 The book I am reading is Hardy Boys. Yes, I would recommend it to a friend if they like mystery.
5. Who in Kent City has made a positive impact on your life?   What have they done for you?
Mr. Wilson has made a positive impact on my life. He pushed me to work harder in sports and to become 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?  
One thing I will never forget about the 2019 cross country season was finally being able to break 19 minutes at our last race of the year. I was looking forward to having fun with my friends and becoming a better runner.

We are encouraging all student-athletes to remain active during this time of social distancing due to the coronavirus.   A valuable resources for all Kent City students is our online strength and conditioning program, PLT4M.   PLT4M has created a Remote Fitness workout that can be done at home without any equipment.   Many of our student-athletes are already on PLT4M and simply need to log in.  If you are not on PLT4M, here is a link you can use for more information: PLTM Workouts 4-19 — 4-25.    Other questions can be directed to Coach Gropp at zach.gropp@kentcityschools.org and he will get you up and running — literally.
