After my Freshman year, I decided to drop my other sports and focus entirely on track and field. I ran a 2:03 as a freshman, a 1:59 as a sophomore, and a 1:55 as a junior. This year I'm going to run a 1:51.
I understand the most important part of our sport is having mental aptitude, and forging resilience is necessary to succeed. I've come to love grueling workouts and embrace the pain that comes with progress. One of the greatest things resulting from track is the team atmosphere that transcends among us as the season progresses. Hurting, growing, failing, succeeding, and breaking barriers with the guys right by your side brings you close to them .
Academically, I apply myself to my studies zealously. I take my schooling very seriously, and I have always been at the top of my class. I have been in as many AP and honors courses as I can fit in my schedule, and I greatly enjoy the challenges they present.
In college, I plan to be a competitive athlete at the Division 1 level and obtain a degree in Architectural Engineering. Having college level courses at the high school level has prepared me for the strain of being a top level student athlete, thus I feel I will be able to handle the transition from high school to college.
I look forward to talking with you.
