Salute To Seniors: Andre Ewers - Piper High School

What was your most memorable race/moment?
My most memorable moment was at my Regional Championship meet when I ran a 10.33 wind aided and came back in finals and ran a 10.31 (NWI). That day was the day all my hard work and dedication paid off, and the fact that i was hungry for it. That opened my eyes to a lot of big things.
Who would you consider your biggest competition over your four years?
There is a lot of competition out there, but I would say overall my biggest competition is myself.
What was your greatest accomplishment?
My greatest accomplishment is what I've achieved my senior year. All my goals I've set since my freshman year I've accomplished 95% percent of them this year. With all the people doubting myself and my school, I came into the season with a really strong mind set of proving people wrong. I was a double champion in the 100 and 200 meters at the BCAA Championships, Districts, and Regional Championships.

My advice to these young athletes is to always train hard and stay dedicated. Always hang tough and stay hungry. Never settle for less because there is always room for improvement. Being a humble athlete is a big role in achieving greater things. Lastly, have faith and always put God first in everything you do.
What influence has your coach had with respect to your performance and overall life goals?

A couple of my coaches have had big influences in my performance and giving me motivation. Those are a former a coach of mine, Coach Auls and my high school coach Coach McCal. Coach McCal pushes me everyday in practices and trains me like I am the best so I can go out and perform like I am the best.
