The first Senior Spotlight of the new week shines on boy’s track and field athlete Dominic Gigliotti, who will be attending Rowan University in the fall to major in Biological Sciences with a Pre-Med track. Here is our conversation:

Cinn City Sports: How did you get interested in track and field?

Gigliotti: I started running in the middle school, but didn’t run my freshman year. I was pressured into running by Emmanuel Udotong my sophomore year; I’ve stuck with it ever since.

CCS: What is your favorite aspect of track and field?

Gigliotti: Many people see track and field as an individual sport. There is a lot more teamwork involved then people think. I love the comradery that track and field has.

CCS: Favorite class at CHS?

Gigliotti: My favorite class has to be either AP Statistics, AP Biology, or Forensics.

CCS: Most challenging class taken at CHS?

Gigliotti: The most challenging course, by far, was Honors Chemistry my sophomore year.

CCS: What have you enjoyed most about being part of Student Council?

Gigliotti: I love being the voice of the students. I love listening to what they have to say, and trying my hardest to get them what they want.

CCS: What do you look forward to the most about college?

Gigliotti: I look forward to the opportunities that will arise in college.

CCS: What do you like to do in your free time?

Gigliotti: Free time is almost nonexistent, but when I have it, I like to hangout with friends and roller skate.

Favorite movie/TV show? The Godfather is by far my favorite movie. I’m constantly switching TV shows; Right now I’m hooked on Gotham and The Following.

Favorite band and/or song? I like all types of music, so this hard to choose. I would have to say either Rascal Flatts or Linkin Park.

CCS: Most memorable moment of your athletic career at CHS?

Gigliotti: My favorite moment in my athletic career is when I made the Board at our Divisional Meet last year. (The Board is the top 5 times since 2005. I became third in the 400 hurdles with a time of 59.31 seconds)

CCS: What will you miss most about CHS?

Gigliotti: I’m going to miss my friends the most. Even though most are staying local, not being able to see them everyday will be a tough thing to overcome.
