Salute To Seniors: Jarred Komyati Of Panther Creek


Name: Jarred Komyati

School: Panther Creek

What was your most memorable race/moment?

Definitely taking third at the 2018 indoor state meet, from the slow heat. It was a major turning point in a good direction for the rest of my year. 


Who would you consider your biggest competition over your four years?

I would definitely have to say the Green Hope and Cary men's teams. As well as myself mentally. 

If you could do it all over again what would you change about your running career in high school?

I hands down would've trained harder my freshman year. I didn't take track seriously what so ever, I just showed up and ran. And I wish I would've tried harder because I could be a lot better now than I am.


What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?

I'm going to miss my teammates the most. They have really helped me through some tough times and we have celebrated some great ones too. 


What will you miss the most?

I'm going to miss my teammates the most. They have really helped me through some tough times and we have celebrated some great ones too. 


What advice you would give to younger athletes?

Don't be scared to get uncomfortable, that's what this sport is about. When you're uncomfortable, that's when you have the greatest chance of success. 


What influence has your coach had with respect to your performance and overall life goals?

My coach has not only tought me how to be the best athlete I can be. But he also tought me some manners along the way. Honestly of all the coaches I've had, coach Scruggs has been the most influential coach in my entire athletic career. 


What are your college plans?

I am to attend and run Track & Field as well as  Cross Country at Lenoir-Rhyne University this fall.


Who would you like to say thank you to?

I would not only like to thank my parents for the early mornings and late nights, but to all the guys that have been there for me from bad races to state championships, you're family and that ain't ever gonna change.( Just to name a few, Ben Woodman ,Christian Alverez, Brandon Clarke and Elijah Cernoch)
