When starting high school in my home district, I had no clue where I wanted to be in 5 years, nor what I wanted to do for a living. That's still the case today, 3 years later, as I go into my senior year at the best high school in the state. I became a student at MSSM for better preparation and some inspiration for college. While it's greatly prepared me academically, I still am undecided as to what field of study I'll fit into. Sports have been like a second life for me growing up, competing in everything from soccer, to Nordic skiing, to track and field. It was only these past two years when I found my athletic calling in the throwing events in track and field. I had competed in throwing in the USATF Summer Track and Field program for about 4 years until I started high school, where I sacrificed baseball to be able to continue throwing. Writing this now, I'm extremely happy I made the switch. While our northern Maine class C seasons are short and sweet for track and field, I've been putting in strenuous and extensive work in and out of the classroom. I have found throwing discus to be an amazing outlet for exercising my body physically and mentally, which is why being able to compete at the collegiate level would be a dream come true for me. On and off the field, sportsmanship is vital, and I have fun doing what I love while maintaining a serious composure when needed. My frequent training and workouts this summer have led me to realize that repetition in the circle, in addition to watching film online can only do so much, and that I need the help of a coach to be able to truly better my abilities. I put 110% of myself into what I do, and being given the opportunity to compete in college (with adequate financial support) would unlock a whole other side of potential for me.
