Crossing Country with Kevin

Kevin Tan (Junior) smiling bright for the start of Cross Country season.

With the Cross Country season around the corner, I asked Junior Kevin Tan about his experience with the sport and his expectations for this season.

KT: Yeah I do.


FL: Have you won in any of your races so far?

KT: No not yet, but that’s the goal.


FL: Why should the incoming freshmen join Cross Country?

KT: It is a great sport. It’s a smaller squad so we become really close and bond with each other.

KT: Race days. Race days are the best days.


FL: Who is your favorite coach on the team?

KT: Probably coach Patrick Imfeld.
