Coach Justin Daniels on Lee: “This being Nartorian’s senior year, he has his sights set on a podium finish at states, and is putting in the work to get there. He’s only had four losses, two to a regional rival in which he’s been able to close the point gap, and two to northern state placers. He uses these losses to push the pace at practice. He’s never satisfied with what he knows and always asks about what he can improve on and little technique changes to make him more competitive. He’s willing to sacrifice, work and learn, and those are the things that will open doors for him to do big things.”
Parent: Carniahia Williams, Orange Park.
