Michael Wolfe '21

What is your favorite athletic memory as a Tatnall Hornet?
Winning XC states as a team by one point in my sophomore year.

What is the most important lesson playing sports at Tatnall taught you?
Perseverance, as I’ve been injured a number of times, but that has not stopped me from pursuing my goals.

What was the biggest difficulty you faced in your athletic career, and how did you overcome it?
At the end of last April, I partially tore my post tib ligament in my foot/ankle. I was in physical therapy for four months and was out of running for almost seven months. I grinded on a bike all fall to be able to put myself in a better spot to compete in the winter and spring.

If you could say one thing to younger Hornet athletes, what would it be?
To really apply yourself as a freshman and sophomore, as it pays dividends in your upperclassmen years.

Who is a teammate or coach you would like to spotlight, and how did they help you as a Tatnall athlete? 
Coach Castagno has been instrumental in developing me from a bottom JV runner to a contributor who scored at the indoor state meet. He’s helped me find a way to train through my injuries and find a way to help me develop with low volume training to keep me healthy.
