Cuthbertson High School senior track and cross country runner Alexia Noch is ready to
begin her final season of track for the Cavaliers. The 18 year old daughter of Kevin and
Juanita Noch plans to compete in the 3200, 1600, and 800 events along with running a
stage on the 4×800 relay team. Upon graduation, Alexia will head to the north side of town
to continue her track career and education at UNC Charlotte.

Alexia has worked hard to become an elite level runner with personal best times of 11:25
in the 3200, 5:17 in the 1600, 2:25 in the 800 and a 5K best time of 18:55. She has had many
exciting moments in competition.

“One of my top athletic accomplishments would have to be when my team won the 3A

career. To add to that I am really close with my family, so I didn’t want to be
more than 3 hours away from them. A 45 minute drive was perfect for me and I

Charlotte Track and Field coach Alex Gibby spoke about Alexia; “We feel
that she is very capable of stepping in next year and contributing from day one.
On the track, as a true distance runner, she will be able to contribute in events
from 3000m to 10,000m”

Alexia also competes at a high level inside the classroom at Cuthbertson.
She maintains a solid position on the A/B Honor Roll and is enrolled in many
