I am a Junior, three year starter on varsity basketball and a two time 1st team all District Player. I have a 4.0 GPA and I am also a starting sprinter for the varsity track team and we won the 2018 State Championship in Track & Field. For basketball, I am the starting point guard for the third straight year. So far this year I have over 260 points and I am the leader on the court for my team. Facing the same teams for third straight year has been a challenge because opposing coaches know me and know I am the one to stop on the team. They usually have two girls covering me and one of those girls only job is to not leave my side the entire game. This has been a great opportunity for me because I am finding ways to get my shots off while being so closely guarded. I am great and using my speed and ball handling to break the press. This really annoys opposing coaches. One coach even yelled at her players to hold hands all around me and not worry about anyone else. Last year as a sophomore I had a stronger team around me and a really good senior post so we could play off each other really well. This year I do not have a very strong team around me. As a point guard I am very good at feeding my teammates the ball but unfortunately they usually then throw up a crazy shot or turn the ball over. This has been a good experience for me because it has taught me to find a balance of getting them involved and also when to just take control of the game. My freshmen year I was selected 1st Team All District and the District coaches unanimously voted me Newcomer of the Year. I believe in hard work and letting my skills do my talking on the court (as well as on the track). I enjoy weight lifting (I currently squat 315lbs) and when my teams are not practicing I am practicing. This year I am sitting at over 263 points going into the playoffs, last year I had 293 (we played a lot more games and tournaments, and freshmen year I had 238 points. Being a two sport athlete has helped me because my strength and speed from track carry over and enable me to be the best I can be on the basketball court. People might underestimate me the first time they play me because of my size but every time we face a team for the second time you can hear their coach yelling "your only job is to stay glued to #32". I work every day to get better and develop more skills and abilities. I am a highly competitive person and I don't like to lose and I put in the hard work all year to make sure I don't whether it is on the court or the track.
