Spotlight 2022 – Chase Watson, Annville-Cleona

Chase Watson

School – Annville Cleona High School

College Choice – TBD

Intended Major – Interior Design

Future Aspiration – To continue running at the collegiate level in both Cross Country and Track. I’m excited to be in the final stages of choosing where I will run in college.  What an honor to have 2 choices ahead of me with supportive coaches on both teams.  Where ever I plan on attending I will pursue a degree in Interior Design and one day open my own design business.

Favorite HS Teacher – Miss Heller, my Biology and Cross Country/Track Coach. She made Biology fun, interesting and understandable.

My favorite thing to do when not competing – I enjoy hanging out with my family & friends, playing XBOX, drawing and taking photos, listening to music and watching crime/drama shows. 

My favorite movie – James Bond “Casino Royal”

Favorite Shoe Brands – Nike and Brooks for Cross Country and Nike and New Balance for Track

Favorite Cross Country Invitational – The 2021 Carlisle Invitational where I placed 21st and finished with a PR of 17:31

I want to personally thank Coach Heller and Coach Felty, they’ve pushed me and supported me throughout my years of running at Annville-Cleona.  I am looking forward to my senior track season at Annville-Cleona.  I am working hard to keep my training up this winter so I can set new PR’s and help my team succeed this spring! I’ll be running the 400M and 800M as well as the relays.

Advice to younger athletes – I know putting in the effort and training can be a mental challenge but once you get past that you can do anything.
