After high school Jacob plans on attending UCCS. He is planning on studying mathematics or economics. He wants to continue running but to also have fun with it by entering in various races.
Jacob’s advice to the younger runners is “The last two years have given me a new found passion for running and made me realize all the benefits of consistency and determination. Stay focused during this time and you will improve greatly and be prepared for the next season.”
Nobody is missing this track season more than Jacob. He joined the team only a year ago. In just a year Jacob put in the work and wow did he get fast. He set PR’s in a pre-scrimmage workout, just after an injury following a great half marathon race. Jacob was primed for a great track season, but his lifelong racing attitude will serve him best. Jacob’s energic rally cheers and fun-loving attitude that percolated to his teammates will be missed.
Christian plans to attend UCCS in the fall and study Exercise science. He will be pursuing a degree for physical therapy and plans to run professionally if possible.
Even though the workouts are hard, losing a close race and not competing are harder. You need mental toughness to be an athlete which means pushing your body more than you are comfortable with. Remember if you aren't first, you're last.”
Christian is the runner with beautiful running form that is dedicated to his craft. Christian has textbook distance and middle-distance running technique and could demonstrate any drill flawlessly to the underclassman. He never missed workouts whether it’s summer, winter, or in season he was there working hard to get better. He offseason commitment was on full display when started off this year running a major PR at the Never Alone scrimmage. His dedication, leadership, and team support will be missed.
