This is Ben Graf, a senior at Butler Traditional High School. He is a part of our schools track and cross country team. With his parent’s support, Ben decided to try out for the team. Ben loves to run. He loves that he can do something he enjoys and support his school. He has been running for a year now, and he knew that he made the right decision as soon as he started. The best race that Ben has ran in was his most recent race, Tiger Run. It took place at Champions Park where he ran a PR of 19:02. He beat his previous PR and was proud of himself. But even though he was happy that he was improving his time, he was aggravated with himself. He knew he had the potential to get a greater time. By the end of this season of cross country, Ben wants to reach the 17’s for a new PR.
