Junior Eric Melrose is an Athlete with many talents. Along with participating in Cross Country, Swim, and Track on the varsity teams, he has also joined several state teams as an alternate. Melrose is a diligent and motivated student who as much as he is an athlete.

What is your favorite class?
Probably, American Studies. The history part of it.

What is your favorite sport or activity?
Cross Country

Where do you see yourself after high school?
Hopefully in college. I think maybe go to veterinary school.

What are some of your accomplishments?
I have lettered in three sports. Been to state, only as an alternate though. Never been able to actually run or swim at state. I am a scholar athlete because I train at the varsity and I get good grades as well.

Did you enjoy being a part of a state team?
I did enjoy it, it was a lot of fun.

What keeps you motivated to keep working?
Going to state. Actually being able to run or swim at state and not be an alternate.

When did you start to gain interest in running and swim?
I started swimming in third grade and I got interested in running in sixth grade at Saint James. My dad encouraged me to run cross country because he loved it when he ran it in San Diego.

How do you think swim is going so far?
So far I think we are looking good. [Coach] Moon is doing crazy things, but it’s what we need to do.

What do you think of Mr. Moon as the new head coach?
I like him. Some of what he does I question because it’s really difficult and challenging, but I know it’s for the best.

What is a normal day in the life of Eric Melrose?
I wake up, go to school, do sports, go home, do homework, and repeat.

What advice do you have for anyone trying out new sports?
Just go out and try it. You never know what you are going to love until you try it.
