“As I watched Nick at a few meets this season, his demeanor was a little different than other seasons. It wasn’t a flashy ‘Watch me.’ But it was more of a ‘Watch me and I will show you what six years at the varsity level looks like.’ He knew he could run with anyone in the state.”
Kyle Zygarlicke
Head Coach - Head coach of Chaska High
