Freshman Shelbi Schauble has emerged as one of West Ranch’s future track stars.

Bryce Fenenbock and Andy Song

Q: How do you like the West Ranch team?

A: The cross country team has become like a second family to me. The coaches and athletes are all so supportive and caring and we all have become so close together as a team. I couldn’t have achieved all that I did in this last cross country season without all of my teammates and coaches support and guidance. I truly was blessed with such an awesome team that was not only very hardworking but very supportive in every way.

Q: When did you start your running career and why?

A: I first got on the track when I was about 9 years old. I started it just for fun because I tried other sports, but none of them really clicked with me the same way running did.

Q: What are your short and long term goals?

A: My short term goals are to really make the most of this upcoming track season and be able to make it with the help of my team to the Arcadia games in the spring. My long term goals are to make it to state with my team or as an individual in cross country, and with the help of my team become the first Girls’ team in West Ranch history to win league overall for cross country.

Q: What is your biggest running achievement?

A: I’d say I’m most proud of making it all the way to CIF Preliminaries as an individual last cross country season. I was extremely honored to be invited by myself, but I wish my team was there with me at the start line. I wouldn’t have made it to that point if it wasn’t for my ladies.

Q: Who is your role model?

A: That’s a tough one, but I’d have to say Destiny Collins [of Great Oak High School]. Her work ethic is like no one else and she’s inspired me to keep fighting to reach my full potential. She’s achieved so much in the running world that I strive to accomplish in the next couple years.
