Super Spartans: Nick van Osdol

Isaiah Jackson

How long have you been running?
“I’ve been running all my life, but I’ve only been running competitively for 3 and a half years, all with MV cross country and track.”

What inspires you to run?
“I’m inspired to run simply to stay in shape and to challenge myself, because there’s always room to improve and new challenges to get into with running. I still want to be in good shape when I’m over the hill like a lot of the role models I have also.”

What is your favorite memory of cross country?
“I’d have to say my favorite cross country memories were traveling to various races last year with the varsity team, like at the Mt. Sac invitational and the State championships.”

Teammate and co-captain Maya Weigel:
“Nick is a very dedicated captain who’s always willing to help out the younger kids on the team and he really just puts a lot of his effort andĀ dedicationĀ into making the team a more connected and happier place to be.”
