September’s Athlete of the Month is senior, cross country runner, Quinn Endicott.
Endicott has been actively running for the past 7 years. He was team captain for cross country and track during his middle school years and it has definitely paid off. He has even beaten the school’s record in the 3,000 meter steeplechase.
When asked who inspired him to start running Quinn revealed both his parents ran track and he aspired to do the same. A Steve Prefontaine quote that always motivates Quinn to keep going is “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.”
After high school, Endicott plans to take a break from running and focus on his studies at Asbury University. However, Endicott is planning to train and win many ultra marathons and Ironman races. He also claimed he wanted to run some sort of race in every state and get top 10 in school history for the 5k.
As of now, Quinn plans for this year’s team to make it to state and win regionals for both guys and girls. While maintaining his 4.0 GPA and being involved in many school clubs such as BETA, NHS, FCA, Y-Club, and the Student Voice Team, it is safe to say Endicott is definitely running in the right direction and nothing is slowing him down.
