Personal Statement

Hello, my name is Lance Rainer. I am a student- athlete at William Penn Charter School entering my junior year.  My teachers, coaches, and classmates would say that I am a dedicated student, a fierce competitor, and a respectful, fun person to be around.  I am very grateful for having been given the opportunity to attend a special high school where I am challenged on so many levels and have made so many great friends.  Most importantly, I had the opportunity to grow as a member of several diverse communities over the past few years and the small contributions that I have made are what I am most proud of and want to carry forward with me into my college years. The example that I think best describes the kind of person I am is when I stepped aside to let a fellow teammate on my club swim team swim in a championship meet.  Only one of us could swim the event.  I had the better time but had competed in the event before.  My teammate was a senior and would not have the opportunity to swim in the championship meet again.  I talked with my coaches and gave him my spot in the individual event and on the relay.  I thought about giving up a championship win but I felt it was the right thing to do.  My coaches supported me and in the end they said they were happy I did it. My teammate had a great swim.   

I am very proud of my athletic accomplishments over the years and plan to play lacrosse at the college level.  It was difficult for me to choose one sport because I achieved success in many.  I have been involved in sports since I was in first grade.  I played soccer, baseball, lacrosse, flag football, basketball, swimming, water polo, and football. I scored a lot of goals and won a lot of races and broke a lot of records.  I also had plenty of setbacks like losing big races by 1/100th of a second and minor injuries that kept me sidelined for a season.  But all of the setbacks as well as the successes led me to appreciate my athletic abilities, learn and grow as an athlete and concentrate on one sport.  The sport I enjoy most is lacrosse and I have worked hard to be a really good midfielder who can play both ways and help my team succeed.  Over the years, and especially now with Coach McDonough and Coach Sankey, my coaches are a big part of my life providing me with direction and support.  All of my coaches tell me it is not all about scoring goals, it’s about the type of guy I am off the field.  I take this to heart and try to make my coaches, teachers, and parents proud of me every day. I have also learned that being disciplined in my sport takes hard work and I am ready for that challenge at the next level in lacrosse. 

I am looking for a college where I can continue to be challenged academically and as a lacrosse player. I plan to major in international business or business management with a minor in global studies.  I am a member of National Student Honor Society and I am a certified life guard.  I am particularly interested in water conservation and policy. Currently I am completing a certificate in global studies at Penn Charter. Finally, I am passionate about water safety and teaching young children to swim to avoid accidental drownings.  In addition, I enjoy coaching young athletes in swimming and lacrosse. I know I won’t have time for all of this in college but I am looking for a college where I can find a good balance between lacrosse, academics and my volunteer activities.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.
