About Me

I ran Varsity Cross Country and Track for Dutch Fork high school where i graduated in 2010. My main event is the 400m but i also put a lot into the 4x400m relay. My 400m relay team went to 4A state in 2008 placing second with a school record of 3:23.42 then in 2009 we went to state again only placing fourth but breaking the school record again with a time of 3:21.91 and back again in 2010 placing sixth. In the open 400m at the 2009 state meet i had my best official time of 49.32 placing second. I was also awarded All-state in the 400m as well.I made it to the 2010 state championships with my 4x800 team placing sixth. I ran the 5k in high school as well. At the end of my Senior season my PR was a 17:01.27 placing 25th at state. I qualified to run the Shrine Bowl game ball run. Now i run Track for Furman University. My Freshmen year i set out of my indoor season because of an injury, but made it back for my outdoor season where i placed ninth in the 400m finals in the SoCon Championships and was on the 4x400m team the placed sixth at the SoCon Championships as well. I am in my sophomore year and hope for a healthy successful year.
