Skylar said he got interested in running because it was it was something new to do.
“This was definitely the new to do so I went out and tried it and I just began to love it,” he said. “Our old coach (Keith Comfort) who is our coach's father (Mike Comfort) always said 'Cross country is a sport you can always have. In football, you're done after college or high school. But in cross country, you can always do because you can always go out and run.' I just love that philosophy. I just love the sport because it's so much fun.”
Spencer said with Sienna running hard this season, he thinks he's been a good motivation for her.
He added that it was Skylar who got the ball rolling for the other two to try the sport out.
“During middle school, Skylar was a big sports guy and he wanted to try out for a bunch of sports so he tried out for cross country as a seventh-grader,” he said. “I didn't get interested in it because I wanted to wait and see what happens. When Skylar was doing good, my family decided 'Spencer, maybe you should give it a shot.' So I thought freshman year, I would join my first cross country team. I did a good job and I just I got on to it. Sienna joined later and that's how it all started.”
“Spencer has been a big part of my life,” Skylar said. “Every race I know he's back there and I know he's trying to catch me. I know have to push it harder or else he is going to catch me. It's great to have him back there because I know he's going to help lead the rest of the team as well. If I'm having a bad race, he's going to make sure I pick it up.
