I would like to attend an university where I can pursue my academic as well as my athletic goals. I am currently taking honors classes in math, English and science as well as an advanced placement class in US history. I am currently maintaining a 3.0 GPA. I have been a nationally ranked 800m and 1600m runner for approximately 8 years. I am a 12 time medalist at the AAU junior Olympics and a multi indoor national champion. I am completely focused and determined to continue to be one of the top middle distance runners in the country. I will bring this commitment both academically and athletically to your university.
