My name is Paul Sherrill and I am a senior at Summit Christian Academy in Cedar Park, Texas. I first started running competitive track in 5th Grade and I quickly fell in love with it. Since then, I have competed in both AAU track, in which I have competed in the AAU National Junior Olympics and medaled by getting 8th place in the 3000m, and school track. As a freshmen, I was blessed to be able to win the TAPPS 2A 3200m State Title with a time of 10:10.75 and get third in the 1600m with a time of 4:44.86. Winning state as a freshmen was truly an amazing experience and I thank God for helping me accomplish that goal. As a sophomore I improved my time in the 1600m by running a 4:35.66, in the 800m with a 2:04.21, and in the 3200m with a 9:59.18. I was also blessed to win the TAPPS 2A State title in the 800m and 1600m and was the 3200m runner-up. I was also honored to be the TAPPS 2A South Regional Athlete of the Meet. This year, I was blessed to win all 3 of my events at State with two PRs (3200 and 800). However, I am striving to do even better as my high school career continues. I love to work hard on the track and in the classroom, because I love seeing myself get better and seeing all my hard work pay off. I would love to compete in track on the collegiate level, because it would give me an opportunity to further my career in track and in academics. I think I would be a good fit for anyone's team, because I believe in giving 100% in everything that I do whether it's my favorite thing or not. At the end of the day, it's all about doing the best you can and working hard.
