Hunter Dupuis: Belmont Male Athlete of the Season


Wednesday, June 27, 2018

What was the biggest challenge you or your team faced this season and how did you overcome it? The biggest challenge this season was not having a track so we had to practice without one and we were able to overcome all of that and still place 3rd in the state meet.

Who was the unsung hero of your team? Connor Jackson. He is such a great person and does so many things for the team. He is super invested in the team and also very supportive.

If you could improve high school track in New Hampshire, what would you do? I would change the events to be uniform. For example most of the rest of the U.S. high schools have a 400-meter hurdles and N.H. has only the 300-meter hurdles.

Do you have any sports superstitions? If so, what are they? Not really sure if keeping my routine the same or similar before every meet counts as a superstition but that’s all I do.

What are some of the unwritten rules of your sport? Quieting down before a race is about to start so the runners can focus. If someone is using blocks in their race and they don’t have anyone standing on the back of them, help them out and stand on the back.

Who on your team, coaches included, reminds you of a character in a TV show or movie? I could see them all on a TV show. They are all funny and unique.

Where do you get your news? My parents or friends usually tell me.

What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made? Candy. Anytime I buy it I enjoy eating it but I feel bad after.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know? Otters are closely related to skunks.

If you could go to school in a foreign country, which country would you pick and why? France.

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest? Squirrels.

What’s the best thing about being a teen? What’s the worst? Having to get up for school in the morning and people expecting you to be able to fully function.
