Coachable, accountable, selfless and disciplined are a few characteristics that describe me. The game of field hockey has been my passion ever since I was a small child. As the daughter of two physical education teachers and coaches, I have been fortunate enough to be raised around great athletes, but more importantly influential people (both students and adults). I have seen first hand how much time and energy goes into being a successful student athlete, both on the field and in the classroom. As I enter my sophomore year of high school, I am truly beginning to understand what being a good student athlete and teammate represents.
Playing field hockey has taught me how to balance my academics while participating in a varsity sport. As my course load grows more challenging in high school, I will continue to do my very best to maintain my 3.5 average. My grades are extremely important to me and I will always strive to do well in the classroom.
Being a good teammate means you are encouraging on the field, even in the face of adversity. I have a team first attitude at all times and believe as I grow, my teammates will trust me because I will always lead by example. I strive to always model good character on and off the field and be one of integrity. Treating my coaches and opponents with respect is something I pride myself on. As a player that always wants to improve, I am constantly setting personal goals for myself, trying new techniques and skills, and taking risks to better myself.
I am excited to start this search to find the best fit for me both academically and athletically; a college that challenges me in all aspects of my life.
