Sophomore Frank Hauber placed a strong second in the 5K Warrior Dash in Warwick on Saturday, May 21. The feat qualifies him for the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC) being held in October, in Ontario, Canada.


The Warrior Dash is a 12-obstacle course featuring muddy trenches, roped tunnels, leaping over fire, monkey bars, and climbing over walls of varying heights. This event benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and has raised over $13 million to date.


Also a valued member of Minisink’s junior varsity teams in soccer, wrestling and lacrosse, Frank is used to challenging himself on a multitude of obstacles.


“It’s been a great year in sports for me, and that’s helped me prepare for this race, physically and mentally. As some of my teammates moved up to varsity this year, I had to step up and be a leader. These sports, wrestling especially, have taught me how to stay mentally tough and get through all kinds of difficult situations.  In wrestling, you’re out there on the mat, on your own, without the help of teammates. I have to remind myself every day to stay strong. That’s helped me in sports, life, and the Warrior Dash. I had a goal, and that was to do the very best I could do. In the end, it turned out pretty well,” Frank said.


“I am privileged to have Frank as a student in health and physical education classes. He is a great kid and a hard worker. I’m really proud of him and his accomplishments,” said Nick Emanuele, physical education teacher.


Congratulations, Frank Hauber!
