West Branch Cross Country runner Jacob Stagi has been chosen as the Warrior Watch’s male athlete of the week for the week ending on 9/23/18. Jacob has continued to be one of the top runners on the Cross Country team, as he already has recorded one victory on the year at the Bellwood-Antis meet on September 13th. Jacob most recently placed as the top WB runner in the boys division at the Hershey Invite this past weekend.

“Jacob has grown immensely as a runner and a person,” West Branch Head Coach Jane Catanzaro said. “He has done all of the things needed to improve each year. I expect every ounce of strength every race and that is exactly what he gives. His best races are still ahead of him.”
