This week’s Wolf of the Week is sophomore Eric Coston, a phenomenal student athlete, ranked as one of the state’s top runners in cross country and indoor and outdoor track. His first St.Paul’s school year as a freshman was a success, winning the personal state championship in cross country, a considerable feat at such a young age. Eric loves to be a St.Paul’s Wolf and represents the school very well, both in his sport and academically. Eric is very fun to talk to when sports is a topic. He is also a member of the school’s Student Hosts service organization during his off-time from training and competing. He does all these things while maintaining a 3.7 GPA average.
