Hillcrest High School’s cross country team took region on Friday, October 7th. Zac Hastings has been running since he was eight years old, and has always taken pride in his health and liked to exercise.

“I’ve loved running for as long as I can remember,” Zac says. “It’s one of my favorite ways to just clear my head and focus on myself. I started running because of my brother, Braden. He was one of my biggest role models growing up and when he started doing it I kind of picked it up.”

Hillcrest’s cross country team scored a 16 at region- and 15 is a perfect score. Hillcrest’s runners took first, second, third, fourth, and sixth place, with Zac getting first place. Zac’s time for the 5k at region was 15 minutes 12 seconds. His fastest time he has recorded is 14 minutes 52 seconds.

“I got so fast from just practicing. I run everyday, and I have for the past eight years. It’s just become a part of me,” he says.

Zac Hastings will be participating in the state competition for cross country on Wednesday, October 18th. He intends to continue his practice to bring a state championship back to Hillcrest High.
