Alex Hassan

South Hardin cross country members Justin Meints, Alex Hassan (middle) and Jacob Vander Wilt prepare for the 2018 State meet. Hassan received a different kind of training this summer for his final season, he attended basic training.

Summer workouts were a little different this year for South Hardin's Alex Hassan.

The senior has been a regular at the Wartburg College running camp with his cross country teammates. This year, Hassan felt like he didn’t get as many summer miles as he would have liked, but he gave it up for something much greater. Hassan was away at basic combat training for the Army National Guard at Fort Benning, Georgia.


South Hardin senior Alex Hassan completed a 10 week training with the Army National Guard this summer and will attend the AIT portion after graduating high school.
