On the track, Joseph qualified to CCS his final two years once at at the 3200 meters as a junior and in the 800 meters as a senior.
"Joseph contacted us after a change of plans and we have been lucky to have him. He's very motivated and with his high school bests has the potential to do big things as a freshman. We didn't get as good a June as we would have liked but he quickly caught up and has been training with the top 7 since. I'm excited to see him use his diverse abilities this fall and also develop the chemistry with the other freshman who he knows really well."
