Micah Navarro '19 Commits to Run Cross Country at Creighton University

Senior Micah Navarro has committed to run cross country at Creighton University sharing, "I chose Creighton because as soon as I visited I felt that it was the right place for me. The academics, activities, and athletics all felt like an extension of Servite and it was somewhere where I could thrive." He went on to say, "The cross country program was unique to me in that it felt like a family as soon as I met them. They also have a lot of potential for the future and that potential to create something new was enticing."

A three-year varsity letterman for the Friars, Navarro ran both cross country and track and field for Servite but will focus on cross country at Creighton.

Servite Head Coach Richard Gibbs shared, "Micah is a true Servite man. Mastery of Self, one of our major tenets, is exemplified by his success. His work ethic and concern for teammates is among the best that I have ever seen. It has been a pleasure to coach him and he will be missed when he leaves."

Navarro, who plans to study Business Management with Pre-Med at Creighton, is also involved in a variety of activities at Servite including the ambassador program, the activities committee and the Spanish club. Outside of Servite, he is youth teacher for Confirmation and a part of the Order of Malta.

Navarro is thankful for those who helped him on his journey saying, "I want to thank my parents first and foremost for all the support and love that they have given me over these past 18 years. That support has allowed me to find a passion for running and that passion has taken me to the next level. Next, I want to thank my teammates and coaches, without you guys there would be no team and no one to guide me as a runner and a person. I especially want to thank Coach Gibbs for looking at me four years ago and telling me I was a runner whether I knew it or not."

Servite would like to congratulate Micah on this accomplishment and wish him the best of luck at the next level!
