Athlete of the week:Zakaria Adam
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - This week's Athlete of the Week sprints his way onto Sports Express, literally.
From Proctor, its Zakaria Adam. Adam is a runner for the Raiders, and he recently became the first Utica Runner to win the Annual E.J. Hermann Invitational race just a few short weeks ago.
So far this year, he was won every dual meet that he has raced in, and is looking to win the Class A sectional meet, Saturday.
The Native of Sudan moved here just a few years ago, but has certainly made his mark in America at Proctor High School.
In addition to his Raider accolades, he also finished the 2013 Boilermaker in the top 100, placing 68th in the nation's biggest 15k.
