Playing and winning at Frozen Fenway as an eighth grader on a line with 2 seniors was a highlight of my high school hockey career. It was a great experience with my teammates and one that I will never forget. Making it to the Division 3 North Finals that year and coming up just short of a state tournament championship game was heartbreaking. With a team of mainly upperclassmen, I had to learn quickly to mature as an individual, pursue the true meaning of teamwork, leadership and commitment of a varsity athlete. As a student-athlete I realized quickly how to manage my time during the season to continue to put my best efforts in schoolwork each and every night.
I feel very fortunate to have been a High School varsity athlete in the eighth grade while on an up and coming program. Now going into my junior year, reflecting on the opportunities I was given to participate as an eighth grader, freshman and sophomore seasons, has provided me with the experience to excel as an upperclassman and hopefully beyond. I have always enjoyed playing many sports like football, basketball, golf and baseball which I also have been lucky enough to have been the starting second baseman on our varsity team, but hockey has always been the most enjoyable. Being chosen this year by my coaches to represent our team this year as one of the Captains, is an honor that I respect and appreciate. I am in search of a school that will challenge me to be the best I can be both academically and athletically. I believe with my high school experience, leadership as a captain and determination on and off the ice, I can make a positive impact to your school/program. Next year, I hope to continue improving academically and athletically while at Bridgton Academy in Maine.
