Noah Cook, Bowling Green
The senior sprinter holds three school records. He set marks in the 100 meters (10.66 seconds), the 200 (21.53), and as a member of the 800 relay team (1:29.69).
Cook won three events at the Bobcat Invitational on April 7. He won the 100 in 11.19 seconds, set a meet record in the 200 with a time of 22.53, and was on the winning 400 relay team (44.52). Cook won the Northern Lakes League title in the 200 as a junior.
Cook has signed to run at the University of Pittsburgh.
Coach Joe Hudok said what makes Cook special is his attention to detail and his competitive nature.
“He is a fan of track and field and has become a real student of the sport,” Hudok said. “He understands the mechanics and details of his events. This offseason he spent a great deal of time working with coach DJ Michel of Eastwood, who in my opinion is one of the best sprint coaches in the state. From 40 meters on, Noah is one of the best sprinters I have ever seen. He worked very hard to improve his start, and that should lead to great things for him and our entire team this season.”
