By Jeff Caraska

Best athletic moment: When I won the Laguna Valley frosh-soph cross country race last fall.

Funniest athletic moment: My freshman year in track, there was a guy running the mile or two-mile, and he lost his shoe and almost tripped three times in the last 50 yards.

Favorite food: Pasta.

Last movie: "Crazy, Stupid, Love".

I'd never eat: A bug.

Dream college: Santa Clara.

Role model: Olympic short-track speed skater J.R. Celski.

Ideal vacation spot: South America.

If there was a movie about me, I would want to be played by: Shay Mitchell.

I wish I had more time: To improve in cross country.

TV show I never miss: "Pretty Little Liars".

Losing is: Something to learn from.

Favorite athlete: Oregon distance runner Jordan Hasay.

When it comes to driving: I'm pretty polite.

My ultimate goal right now is: To make it to the state cross country meet this season.
