This week’s Athlete of the Week is senior cross country member Paul Bean. Paul’s most recent race was the Sectional meet two weeks ago, where he placed 2nd. He then went on to place 14th at Regionals last week, advancing to the semi-state meet this Saturday. Among these postseason successes, Paul was also the HHC Champion this year, giving him that extra confidence boost to perform well throughout the remainder of the cross country season.

Q: Did the conditions outside affect your ability to keep a good pace throughout the race? Explain.

Q: Did you train for this race any differently than any other race? Explain why or why not.
A: Not really. I treated this race with the same preparation and focus I do before any race.

Q: Did you expect this level of success from yourself prior to the race?
A: Yes, going into the race I had high expectations for how I would finish, especially based off my performance in the past.

Q: How do you plan to carry this success throughout the rest of your season?
