Athlete of the Week — Matt Shaughnessy, Boys Cross Country Co-Captain

Matt Shaughnessy, South’s Athlete of the Week, is on the path to greatness!  A Senior and Co-Caption of the Boys Cross Country Team, Matt has prepared himself during the off-season and is inspiring his XC team to look from within to accomplish their goals.  Although the team hasn’t had its first meet yet, Matt has been practicing the strategies that will develop his team toward the great experience.  Over the hills and through the woods can be easily said from a book of nursery stories, but from Matt Shaughnessy’s perspective, this is the true heart of XC running.  He is committed to challenge the hills and take the paths that will lead his team to finish in victory.
