Trace Alexander, son of Dane Alexander, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week.
He is a freshman at Battle Ground Academy and a member of the Varsity Boys Cross Country Team.
He said that his biggest accomplishment for the season was being named a regional runner up.
He started running cross country as a way to get in shape for wrestling. Soon after he started running, he realized it was something he wanted to seriously pursue.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said, “to get better each and every day.”
His father, Dane, is one of his greatest supporters and role models.
“He pushes me to my limits and makes me strive to get better every day,” he said.
Although only a freshman, Alexander said he has a rough plan set for the future: “To graduate college and get a degree, and become a multiple-time state champion.”
