Senior Sendoff: Tristian Abrams - Northridge

Tristian Abrams

Northridge High School

What was your most memorable meet and why? Most memorable meet had to be "King of the West" when I got out too hard and ran into the first hurdle causing me to fall and the hurdle to end up on top of me

Where did you face your biggest competition? I faced my biggest competition at state, especially in the 300 hurdles and the 4x8

Out of all of your high school accomplishments, which stands out the most and why? My biggest accomplishment has to be becoming the state champion in the 300h even though I just started running them this outdoor season

If you could do it all over again, what would you change about your running career in high school? If I could do it again, I probably would've done XC all 4 years because it helped me get really strong and I also would've tried hurdles a lot sooner

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome during your HS Track career? the hardest obstacle I've had would probably be finding out I had iron deficiency this season and doing my best to not let it affect my running too much 

What will you miss the most?  I will probably miss how much the team felt like family because we've literally seen each other at our lows and at our proudest moments 

Do you have any advice for younger athletes? to the younger athletes, I would definitely encourage you to try new things, the results might just be amazing

What are your post-highschool or college plans? I plan to Attend the University of Alabama and hopefully run 

Who would you like to say thank you to? I really would like to thank Coach Sparks for pushing me to better than I ever imagined and my teammates for always supporting me along the way
