My name is Madison Csontos and I am a current sophomore and am very interested in playing lacrosse in college.
During my first year of high school, I have been able to grow as a student, athlete, and person. I ended with a 3.7 GPA and honor roll both semesters. In my next years, I plan on joining the Peer Leaders program and continue taking part in clubs like Cougar Connect, a club focused on spreading school spirit, and student council. I love science and math and would like to study medicine in college.
As a freshman, I was on the JV basketball team and a varsity starter for lacrosse. During my basketball season, I was able to make new friends and stay in shape. During my lacrosse season, I ended with 24 goals, I was named 2nd team all-conference and given the coaches award. I had a very impactful 1st year and was able to develop more and more as an athlete.
During my sophomore year, I focused my energy on my school work and my lacrosse skills. Throughout the fall and winter, I played in clinics and 7v7 tournaments with my teammates, went to my high school football and basketball games, and worked hard in school. My spring season was busy and tiring, but also very rewarding. Although my high school team didn't win any county or state championships, I was able to help my coaching staff and the team make some huge strides for the program. This upcoming season, my coaches and I have a list of things we are planning on implementing in order to continue building a future for the program.
Before high school, I was put into tough family situations, beginning with my parents divorce when I was 3. Leading up to now, I've able to mature faster and learn some important life skills that set me apart from other people my age. Even though things were difficult, they have made me stronger and I wouldn't go back in time to change anything. I have been forced, in a good way, to mature faster than other kids my age and been able to develop a thicker skin when times are hard. This has helped me on the field because it has allowed me to focus on the game and not get lost in my head.
