My name is Caroline Krebs. I started playing field hockey in 3rd grade. I used to play club soccer but chose to pursue club field hockey at the age of 12 because I wanted to improve my skills. I want to play college field hockey because I love the sport so much and I want to play as long and as much as possible. As a third grader, I was the player who would smile through my mouthguard simply because I had a field hockey stick in my hand. I still feel like this and want to experience this feeling for as long as possible.
Field hockey has taught me many things. It has taught me how to be a great team player, how to be patient while always going for what you want, how to work hard and never give up, and how to multitask. These lessons have helped me on and off the field. They have helped me in school, my personal life, and on the field. At Assumption High School, I am a McAuely scholar. I received state recognition for my performance in the Duke TIP Program. I am currently in all advanced classes and am even taking one AP class as a freshman. Field hockey has taught me how to work hard for good grades and for a good outcome on the field. I am a strong team player and have a good vision of the field. As a freshman in high school, I was placed on both the JV and Varsity teams at nationally ranked Assumption High school. I was recognized on the all-tournament teams for the Apple Tournament and the end-of-season JV tournament. I scored the game-winning goal on a stroke in the finals of the JV end-of-season tournament with two minutes left. I always strive to improve my skill, to be there for my team and to work to earn my spot.
My goal is to go to a school with high academic standards and a field hockey program that can help me grow as a player and as a student. I am looking to study pre-med or biology. I want to go to a school that will challenge me, but I believe that my determination and work ethic will allow me to succeed in both academics and field hockey.
