LEADER OF THE PACK

Nick Carleo completes best season in NHS history

(Continued)

“He can only get better if he keeps working with coach Hennigar and working on the fundamentals,” Foley said. “All the accolades he’s gotten, he’s earned, it’s all hard work and his perseverance and determination.”

What the future holds for Carleo is anyone’s guess, though everyone agrees that as long as he keeps working hard, his future is bright and the sky is the limit. Hennigar doubts that will be a problem, though, saying that not only is Carleo an outstanding talent, he’s also an outstanding person.

“The best thing about it is he’s not at all cocky about it and he understands that there’s still a lot more there, that he can accomplish a lot more,” Hennigar said. “He’s still hungry to keep going. He’s matured a lot, he gets things now, he’s an easy kid to coach.”

Carleo said he hopes to run in college someday, and next year he’d like to repeat as an All-American and potentially challenge for the national championship, but in the meantime, his main goal is to just keep improving, and the first step will be to help lead his team to another successful year in the upcoming outdoor season.
