Senior cross country runner Quinn Koch of Berkeley International High School (BIHS) hopes to help lead the Berkeley High School (BHS) cross country team to a league championship. His confidence in the team is rooted in how members inspire each other. “We have a very deep team,” Koch said, “a lot of guys packed in close together, so we’re really pushing ourselves.” However, Koch mentioned the difficulties of managing his time. “I will have to juggle college applications with track,” he said. “This will be very difficult and I hope my training and practices will not suffer,” Koch added. That being said, Koch feels that “running really clears my head and helps my mind get right.” He also talked about his personal aspirations. “My goals are to improve my times, maybe finish in an all-league spot,” Koch concluded.
