For the past three years, senior Santiago Erreguerena has worked to keep improving and learning from his mistakes. That dedication has led him to become the team’s co-captain.

“I love it,” Santiago said. “It’s very rewarding and I get to be co-captain which makes me very happy because it’s my senior year.”

A typical week for Santiago starts with running six miles in the morning. In the afternoon on Monday and Wednesdays he runs another six miles. With a long run on Saturdays, this adds to about 45 miles a week depending on how much he runs Friday.

“I love running, so it’s not fun but extremely rewarding.” Santiago commented. “It is a way to sort of better myself and to prove to everyone, and myself, that I can do better.”

As a sophomore, he was number seven on the team. He continued improving himself and by the end of that year became third. Currently, Santiago is second and is still working to improve.

He is undecided if he wants to do Cross Country in college, but he knows that he will continue to run his whole life.
