Name: Zach Skolnekovich
School: Quaker Valley
Sport: Cross Country
Background: Skolnekovich has started his first high school season strong. The freshman placed 44th at the Red, White & Blue Classic, which was the third-best finish on the team.
Quaker Valley coach Dave Noyes: “He’s not intimidated by any of it. He goes and works right with the seniors in practice. And he’s not afraid to compete with anyone in a match … He’ll also complete any practice I give him. Last week we were doing 800s, and I had him lead the way because I knew he could handle it. I don’t often do that with freshmen.”
