Meet the Green: Jake Zamostny

If I absolutely had to sum Jake Zamostny up in one word, it would have to be regal. Very poised, calm, and collected. No wonder he’s a captain of the cross country team.

A Mt. Airy native, Zamostny is very proud of all of the cross country captains for their active recruitment of the freshmen runners. They made phone calls, held discussions in the Facebook group, and really tried to close the gap between upper and lower classmen. The team is coming together so well that they may even think Zamostny “takes the workouts too seriously,” or so he thinks.

Who could blame the guy when it is competition season for him year round? This past summer, Zamostny participated in the Twilight Series at the Westminster Road Runners where he won his age group. Placing high has been one of his accomplishments this past season yet he was still surprised and grateful to be named captain for the 2011 season.

His favorite memory so far at McDaniel has been going to the Centennial Conference Championship at Muhlenberg. Going with a smaller group rather than the whole team helped him get to know the seniors better before they graduated last year.

Jake Zamostny appears to have everything together. An Exercise Science major planning on attending graduate school for Exercise Physiology, he’s ready for what the future will bring him this season.
