Writer and Photographer / Keeley Miller

Finishing up his first season on the high school track team, HSE freshman Julian Spangler is rounding up an outstanding first year. While competing on the school’s cross country and track teams, Spangler also has maintained a staggering 5.124 grade point average, juggling multiple honors and AP courses.

“It’s really a balance,” said Spangler. “Once I get home from practice, I 101start on my homework and get it done, so I can have some time for myself.”

Spangler began running in elementary school in the hopes of staying fit and meeting new people. Now Spangler competes in the 800m and the mile events for track and conditions in the summer and winter for the track and cross country seasons.

“I like distance [running] because you have to work for it and keep practicing because once you stop, you lose it all and have to restart,” said Spangler. “Most of my friends are in track, and I like running, so it kind of worked out.”

For the rest of the season, Spangler hopes to finish strong and keep running until he transitions to summer cross country conditioning.

The HSE Mascot Monthly Scholarship Athlete of the Month is sponsored by Chef Suzanne who will deliver a catered meal and plaque to the Spangler family during the month of June. Great work, Julian!
