Feature Athlete: Travis Hickling

By: Daniel Tierney/Webmaster

Travis Hickling, a senior at Blue Ridge, is a member of the Cross Country team.  This is his 5th year running on the team, and in the past he has qualified to compete in the state championship race in Hershey, PA.

This year, Hickling plans to run fast, with the ultimate goal of qualifying to run in the state championship again.  While running, he remembers this goal to keep him motivated.

In the future, Hickling plans to start an apprentice program with an electricians union.  On his journey, he will miss “Long runs with Charlie and our bus rides home from meets.”

“Cross country is such an amazing sport, you get not only stronger physically but also mentally.  I’ve been blessed to be a part of such an amazing team that has become family to me.”

This sentence describes Dan well. Not this sentence, but the previous. A student who often forgets assignments might compose such a statement hastily at the beginning of class. Because you can assume that, the sentence accurately describes a poor student. Thus, they have completed an assignment asking them to write a short biography. Because they completed the assignment, doesn't that mean that they are actually a good student, and the biography is wrong? The ability to overthink absolutely anything is an important characteristic of Dan. Dan also enjoys science, reading, writing, philosophizing, and creating new things.
