Athlete of the Week
The Powerland Urban High School Athlete of the Week is Jack Taylor of the St. Paul’s Crusaders cross country team.
This 6’0” runner was the Provincial Cross Country Individual Champion, which also resulted in him leading the Crusaders to the Provincial Varsity Boys AAAA Cross Country Team title. He is the first Crusader in school history to win the individual title. Coach Jeff McMillan states, “Jack has made a steady progression every year. His commitment to the sport has paid off with great results in track, and now cross country. Jack is a natural runner with great foot speed. He is one of the rare runners who could be competitive at the 200m, as well as Cross Country.”
In grade 12, he maintains an 81% academic average, while also participating in track & field.
