Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School senior Noah Rodriguez committed today to continuing his running career as he signed to join Lawrence Technology University’s cross country and track teams. 

Noah, who’s been a Laker ever since Kindergarten, is excited to literally take the next step and compete as a Blue Devil in the fall at Lawrence Tech. This fall he was the first OLL cross country runner to compete in the boy’s State meet in 6 years. He also started a summer Running Club for all age ranges in high school to help others achieve their personal bests. 

Jaime Rodriguez, Noah’s mother and coach at Lakes, “had the pleasure of seeing you since the beginning and the privilege of also being his coach!” We can’t agree more with Coach Rodriguez, “Can’t wait to see him run in college!”
