Zack Nuzzolilo

ZACK NUZZOLILO runs his leg of the 4x800 relay race for West Wilkes during last spring’s NCHSAA outdoor track and field championships.

Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 concerns cancelling the majority of the high school sports spring seasons, the Wilkes Journal-Patriot reached out to coaches and athletic directors to have their senior spring sports athletes to fill out this form. We’ll be recognizing spring sports seniors throughout the remainder of the school year and the summer.

Name: Zack Nuzzolilo

School: West Wilkes High School

Sports Played: track and field, cross country.

Future plans: to attend Iowa State University and obtain a degree in architecture.

Greatest high school accomplishment: Third place in states my sophomore year and receiving my Eagle Scout.

Favorite moment playing high school sports, and why: Walking around the track at North Carolina A&T. It was overwhelming the amount of people there and the crowd that had some to support us.

What advice would you give to future athletes coming up in high school sports: To set a goal and stick with it. You can achieve anything you set you mind to and to take care of your body.

Note: If any senior student-athlete would like to be recognized, email us at wjpsports@wilkes.net or zachc@wilkes.net and we’ll send you a questionnaire to fill out.
