To any coach that may read this, my name is Cale Sterling and I run for Maryville High School's Cross Country and Track team. I started distance running the same as many other athletes have by doing it in middle school to stay in shape for soccer but quickly discovered my talent and affinity for the sport. I decided to go out and run for my high schools Cross Country team and have never looked back. Throughout my running at Maryville High School I have not had the kind of success that I personally have been aiming for but every time that I have failed in my opinion to reach my athletic goals it has only made me want success even more than before I set the goal in the first place. I am now entering my senior year of high school and have really been putting in the hardest amount of training of my life in order to hit the big goal that I have set for myself in running in collage. I knew from a young age that I wanted to play sports at a high level for as long as I could and I intend to continue my athletic career as long as I can. I believe in myself completely that I have the drive and ability to compete well at the collage level I just need a great coach to help me get there. Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a great day.
