Over the years, I’ve competed in many different sports including Football, swimming, basketball, baseball and golf. Then, in 7th grade, I ran track for the first time and then everything fell into place after that. I fell in love with the sport and the opportunities my abilities gave me. Since the first day, my work ethic and natural talent put me at the top of my coaches list as a top runner and contributor to the team. As a result, I was one of only a few freshman to make the Varsity Team. By the end of my freshman year, I was part of the 4x200MR that set the school record, won the Regional Meet and qualified for the Michigan D1 State Finals. As each year comes, my dedication and love for the sport only grows.
Even with all the success early on, I’ve grown and overcome so much more through my failures. Coming into spring my Sophomore year, I had very hefty expectations of myself, but could not meet them. However, through very hard work, training and dedication, I had an excellent turn around my Junior year where I set new PRs in the 400M and 800M. Additionally, as part of the 4x200MR, I set a new school record, won the League and Regional Meets and then finished 2nd at the Michigan D1 State Finals. The other part of my push for college athletics is the academic side. I am a student athlete and I do take my class work very seriously. My GPA after three years is sitting at a solid 3.39. In the final year of high school, I plan on raising that through hard work and focus.
I truly believe that my work ethic, dedication and love for track would make me an excellent addition to any college track team. I have a proven track performance record and have no doubt that I have much more room to improve through hard work and training.
