Congratulations to Kyler Evans for being named Athlete of the Week. This weekly award is sponsored by the Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes at Socastee High School in partnership with the athletic department.
Kyler is a senior on the Cross Country team. Kyler enjoys the feeling he gets from running and says that he runs well at home meets because he knows the course. “My strategy for running a good race is to not go out too fast, keep a steady pace, and slowly pick everyone off,” he explained. Kyler put a lot of work in this summer and says that runners looking to be successful should really focus on their summer mileage. “My goals are to break 18 minutes for a 5K and to be a runner at Coastal Carolina University,” said Kyler.
Coach Melko praised Kyler’s leadership and work ethic when asked about his runner. “Kyler is a true leader. As a team captain, he leads by example by always giving 100% and is always lending a helping hand to his teammates and coaches,” said Coach Melko.
