I am very interested in Environmental Science, English and Spanish. I spent two years of my elementary education in Spanish immersion and at this point I am bilingual. I have completed Spanish AP in my sophomore year. Through my Freshman and Sophomore years I was able to maintain all A grades in my classes. I hope to continue to get all As through high school. My Sophomore year I completed two AP classes ( Environmental Science and Spanish) along with honors classes. I will be taking AP US History and AP Language my Junior year along with Honors integrated math and honors physics. My main goal is to attend the best academic school possible while being able to compete at the college level in athletics.
For athletics I am interested in track and field and football. Hopefully I can attend college at a good academic school where I can compete in one or both sports. My Freshman year I played varsity football, junior varsity basketball and varsity track and field. Last year, my Sophomore year, we completed football finishing 8-3. I was able to start every game at LB as well as playing RB and starting TE. I also was on the varsity basketball team, starting a few games and we had an outstanding season advancing to the second round of State, This season in and Track and Field things went well. I was able to increase My PRs in both Discus and Shot considerably ,. I won the Denver Prep League championships in both events and finished third in state in 4A discus and 9th in Shot. I am the top rising junior in the state currently in discus and I believe fourth in Shot.
From the moment I picked up a discus I fell in love with throwing it. My high school track and field goal is to win state in discus and place in top 5 in Shot. This year went well but I know there is a lot of work to be done. I look forward to competing in the hammer and weight throws in college.
