Kyle Hartman (pictured), an 11th grader at Houston Christian High School (HCHS), qualified to compete in the 5k track event at the Junior Olympics. A cross-country runner since freshman year, Kyle is the first HCHS student to attend the Junior Olympics. He placed 18th overall at the USATF Junior Olympic Cross Country National Championship, which earned him the All-American designation. The honor of competing at the Junior Olympics is especially sweet, as Kyle has recently come back from a significant injury that left him sidelined for three months. He was able to regain his speed and stamina, and will be ready to run against other Junior Olympians later this year.
