As a student athlete who has never had the opportunity to travel overseas, Patrick Shultz, will get to enjoy the experience of a lifetime this summer. He was chosen to compete in the 2012 Down Under Sports cross country meets in Australia.
Patrick, a junior at Polk County High School, will leave June 24, 2012 for an international cross country meet that brings in athletes from different states in the U.S. to compete against other runners from Australia.
There will be two meets. One will feature different U.S. runners from each state competing against each other. The other will feature American runners competing against Australian runners.
In his junior year Patrick finished 2nd in the Region and 16th in the State. Patrick also runs track during the Spring.
Each participant has to raise the money to go on the trip and Patrick has been working hard on that part. He would like to give his thanks to the people who have already given their support to him.
