ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— Hope Christian’s Eric Scharton has been on quite the hot streak lately.


Scharton is among some of the best cross-country runners in the state.

“I've been running against some real good competition these last few weeks. Some people I'll be racing at state,” Scharton said.

As a sophomore, Scharton won a district title and finished in the top 10 at the state track meet last year.

He is off to a great start as a junior, winning the last three meets.

Scharton also took first at the Albuquerque Academy Invitational.

"It was real motivating just to go in during the summer and put in all the miles and just work as hard as I could,” he said. “I've got amazing coaches, so I mean without them obviously none of this would be happening so it's nice to give them some of the credit that they deserve."
