Personal Info and Interests: My family has helped me run and kept me going. It consists of my mom, Rosalie, and dad, Kerry. My brother, Kory, and my sister, Kelly, are also in CTC and are fun running partners. I currently attend West Junior High School and am in 8th grade. I play Columbia Soccer Club soccer with my dad as the coach. I am in Boy Scouts with Troop 708, and I also play Daniel Boone Little League baseball. I have been in CTC for two years, and hopefully will have one more fun, successful year.
