I am a three sport athlete and have lettered nine times through my junior year. I have qualified for state six times and been on the podium twice. I am younger than most seniors as I just turned 17 at the start of the school year. I love running and competing. This is my first year of being able to train by running instead of biking and doing the elliptical and the results are coming through. I have been First team All City (Aurora) in each sport as well as first team all league. Named outstanding performer my junior year in cross country. I hope to find a college team that aspires to be the best they can be. Being a "team" is most important to me because then everything becomes easier for everyone. I have been to the Olympic Trials (spectator) and am hoping my college career is a spring board that gives me a chance to qualify as an athlete. By concentrating more on running in the future my times will drop drastically as wrestling takes a huge toll on my body and hurts me in the short spring track season. I intend to continue running this winter while competing in some indoor track races.
