Frontier’s Chandler Sanders – Player Spotlight Presented by 7C Land & Cattle Steakhouse

Any fan of Frontier athletics will know the name Chandler Sanders. The son of head cross country coach Charles Sanders, Chandler has worked hard to represent Frontier High School since he was a freshman. Now a junior, Chandler is ready to make a name for himself as one of the best cross country runners in the class. 

His journey into cross country started at a very young age. 

“I started in the fifth grade and coach Regnier was the one who got me started,” said Sanders. 

Ever since, Sanders has continued to push himself and compete at a high level. As a freshman, Sanders finished 72nd at the Class 2A state competition. During the state competition his sophomore year Sanders improved 48 positions finishing 24th overall. This season he has a bigger goal in mind. 

“I have made improvements as a freshman I placed 72nd at state and then as a sophomore I placed 24th. As for this season I would like to place in the top 10,” said Sanders. 

He considers his teammates family and he loves competing for Frontier High School. While his focus remains on academics and cross country, Sanders enjoys cheering on the other athletic programs. 

The future for Sanders will include college, but competing at the next level is still something he is weighing. 

“I’d like to go on to college, but as for now I’m not sure what I want to do,” said Sanders. 

Sanders points to two people in his life that have made major impacts as role models; former state champion in cross country, Joe Springer and his father. 

When Sanders has some free time he enjoys resting and relaxing, something tough to do when you’re playing four sports for an entire school year.
