Garrett Hesser was determined to have a strong senior season as a cross country and track and field athlete. In both sports, Hesser had his eyes set on going as far as he possibly could.
Hesser began the 2021 cross country season in the best shape of his life, and it showed with his times. Hesser recorded personal records in both the three-mile race and the 5,000-meter race. Hesser placed first at the Frogtown Invitational with his time of 16:05.6. He placed third at the Mother Lode League championship meet (16:26.9) and set a personal record at the CIF Sac-Joaquin Subsection meet (16:04). All three of those times were in the three-mile race.
