Chris Kwak: “My goal is to get to State.”


Chris Kwak, a senior at Cotter, has a goal for his fourth and final season of high school track — make it to State.

“I like to run a lot, for running is my passion.” Chris says without hesitation.

Kwak has dedicated himself  to the 1600 and 3200 meter races. His endurance has been enhanced through his years of practice.

“I can run 1 mile in 4 minutes 45 seconds, and you can say that is above average.”

Entering the season he wants to get to that mark and finish higher versus his competition than in past years.

Kwak focuses all of his attention on the red line at the end of the track.  He knows it will take hard work and good fortune to get there, but sees it as a realistic goal.

“It is a high goal, but reachable,”  he said.
