Reitz is sending a runner to the big dance..
As regional champion Alex Nolan prepares to make his very first appearance.
The last panther to run at state just so happens to be his older brother Austin..
And the family rivalry runs deep as his father was an all american at u-s-I who also ran at state.
Now it's Alex's time to shine..
As he hopes to not only beat his family's times..
But to also make a top 25 finish.
"If we go by year, I have the fastest times so far, and I have placed the best," said Nolan. "Right now my dad still has the fastest times overall though. I want to get all state, that is the goal. I am ranked 33rd overall by times at semistate, but I think I can improve and get all state, said Nolan.
