JSerra Blog Catches up with Cross Country’s Kylee Fracassi

KyleeWith so much buzzing on campus, during the summer months JSerra Blog decided to feature some of the great athletes working hard.

This week JSerra Blog catches up with cross-country senior and San Clemente resident, Kylee Fracassi.

JSerra Blog (JB): How did you get interested in running cross-country?

Kylee Fracassi (KF): I actually tried cross-country because my brother ran, and ended up staying because I loved it.

JB: Greatest athletic memory thus far?

KF: My greatest memory, that I don’t think I could ever forget was winning the State Championships two years in a row.  It felt so great to have all our hard work pay off.

JB: What do you look forward to this upcoming cross-county season?

KF: I am really excited about getting to know more of the girls on the team and making great memories. And, of course I’d like to win State again.

JB: Any exciting summer plans?

KF: I’m looking forward to being a camp counselor at the Special Camp for Special Kids, and going to Mammoth with our cross-country team.

Summertime isn’t just about running for Fracassi, she also finds time to volunteer at the Shea Center, and is a member of the Habitat for Humanity Club and the Environmentality Club at JSerra. The All-League athlete hopes to run for Texas Christian University after leaving the hallowed halls of JSerra.

“Kylee  is fiercely competitive and driven,” said Coach Marty Dugard of Fracassi’s skills on the track.

Congratulations to the JSerra Choir for their outstanding performance last night at St. Andrew’s in San Clemente. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, Andrew Alverez and JSerra choir.

Cheers from the JSerra community:

“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed last night’s Christmas program. The students were wonderful. I have been so impressed with their talent every time I’ve heard them! Whether they’re at a Pride meeting, a JSPA function, in mass or last evening, they truly represent some of JSerra’s best! I was fortunate to attend the junior class retreat last week with several of your choir members. Not only are these kiddos talented, they are also amazing young people, Congrats!”

“I lend my voice and my congratulations to Andrew and the choir. I saw them perform at South Coast Plaza on Saturday with my husband. I KNEW how fabulous they were, so I was not surprised.  My husband had not previously heard them and he was blown away!  BRAVO.”
