Athlete of the Week — Patrick Gloria, Boys Indoor Track

Patrick Gloria is a senior on the Boys Indoor Track Team. According to Coach Ted Norton, “The 55-meter hurdle dash is Patrick’s favorite race. In this event, a runner must run at  top speed over 5 hurdle barriers using only three strides between them. Patrick does this with such grace he makes it seem effortless. His hard work at practices and his dedication to perfecting his hurdling skills have really paid off. Patrick has won every DCL 55M hurdle event in which he has participated. He was one of the top contributors to his Hurdle shuttle relay team, which placed 3rd at the MSTCA Division I Indoor Track Relay Meet. He has overcome injuries, works really hard perfecting his skills, and has helped his team be successful this season. Life is full of hurdles that you go through…Patrick prefers to run over them!”
