Lucas got into running through his middle school cross country team, which transitioned to a high school running career that has become progressively more serious as his interest in the sport grows. He moved to Asheville from Greenville, NC during the summer of 2017, as his parents found new jobs in the area. His favorite race that he has ever done is The Bear, which is roughly a 5 mile race up Grandfather Mountain in Linville, NC. Lucas have two dogs, William and Gizmo. He will be a senior at A.C. Reynolds High School, which is located in East Asheville. Lucas loves hiking, playing guitar, and having a good time!
