My name is Hannah Henney and I attend Potomac Senior High School, in Dumfries, VA. I play Field Hockey and Lacrosse, and used to be part of a bowling league. I am involved in my schools Newspaper and Literary Magazine Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Science Honor Society, and the National Spanish Honor Society. I am an honor roll student at my school, achieving a 4.0 G.P.A. out of a 5.0 G.P.A. scale and take advanced classes in almost every subject. When i was younger, I never thought I was good at any sports. I did track my eighth grade year and was only good enough to run at meets. When my family moved to Virginia I decided to hold off on sports, since i was new to the area. I then heard of Lacrosse my sophomore year from my physical education teacher, he recommended me to play Lacrosse and Field Hockey, due to my athleticism in class. I decided to look up Lacrosse and researched it, and since Field Hockey was in mid season i held off until the next season to join. Sooner or later, i decided to step out of my comfort zone and join a brand new sport and which i knew no one who played it. I had gotten my very first stick not much later and practiced every day and every P.E. class like crazy. People called me obsessed and still do, but I love Lacrosse and everything about it. I went to every preseason practice and when I made Varsity, never missed a practice or meeting. I soon finally realized that i am dedicated and motivated to anything that i put my mind to. I used to always think of myself as lazy, undetermined, and non-athletic, but not anymore, I feel as if i can achieve anything as long as I put my mind and heart into it.
I would love to continue playing Lacrosse into my college years at a great college that can support my major and Lacrosse. I will continue to play Lacrosse throughout the rest of my senior year in high school, encouraging myself to get better by every practice and work out. I have a very supportive family to support my goals and achieve them as I go. My parents both help my brother, sister, and I, they keep me on my feet to a bright future and I am extremely grateful for everything they have done. It has gone from them complaining about not playing sports to complaining to stop practicing so much. It will continue to be like this until i reach my goal, and that is to hopefully get a scholarship and play Lacrosse in my collegiate years.
