Personal Statement

I have been playing water polo for over half of my life.  Swimming, water polo, and diving were all part of my daily summer routine for many years.  At the age of thirteen, my focus shifted, and I dropped diving.  I did this because I wanted to pursue a sport that I enjoyed and could play at a higher and more competitive level.  A year later, I began to play all year round for Greenwich Aquatics in Greenwich, Connecticut.  Having to stop because I went away to boarding school, I ended up joining the Varsity Water Polo team at Lawrenceville, which I am currently a starter this year in 2018.  Having many different coaches over several years, I have learned how to conform to their styles and lessons of coaching to meet their expectations of a great player. After school, I am consistently the first player to show up to the pool and am one of the few on time.  Although a sophomore, I find myself teaching and directing others, as well as being asked by my coach to demonstrate drills in the water.  I am one of the few people who accept what our coaches say instead of talking back, and this trait has made me a much better player and leader.  I recognize that I am not the fastest swimmer on my team,  but I am catching up because of my perseverance and my teammates' lacking during our swim sets.  I believe that I am an extremely coachable player, a strong leader, and a naturally skilled asset who can make the most out of any college which I am placed.
