Personal Statement

Thank you for reading my profile! My nick name is Speedy. My sport is Track. On 6/12/19 I graduated from Yorba Linda High School where I ran Hurdles for the Varsity Team. This last season in 13/13 track meets I finished 1st overall in 100HH. At the conclusion of the 2019 high school track season I maintained my (2018) individual status as 1st Team - All Conference in addition to being awarded 1st Team - All County for 2019.  Setting a new 100HH meet record for Century Conference this year I also received the 2019 Conference Award for Girls Sprinter of the Year along with YLHS 2019 Award for Most Outstanding Sprinter - Girls Varsity.  I reached 6 new PR's this HS season dropping more than one full second off my 2018 100HH time.  As I begin 2019 club track season I placed 1st overall in 100HH at USATF Youth (17-18) Region 15 JO T&F Championships and competed in Sacramento in July at USATF National JO T&F Championships. Please keep your eye on me. I share my stats with you today to show my progression since I first started running track in high school. In my Sophomore year (2017) I achieved the #3 spot for women's fastest 100HH time at YLHS.  At the beginning of our 2018 season,  I reached the #2 spot at YLHS for fastest 100HH time by our 2nd Meet.  On March 14, 2018, I set a new record and moved into the #1 spot at YLHS for fastest 100HH time in the school's history.  On May 4, 2018, I came in 1st at League Finals for 100HH and became League Champion.  I set another record at YLHS with this victory and reached a new PR. I was presented with the 2018 All-League Track and Field 1st Team individual award, in addition to receiving the award for Most Improved Girls Varsity Athlete 2018 at YLHS.  In June 2018, I qualified for the USATF Hershey National JO Track and Field Championships held in Greensboro NC where I competed in 100M Hurdles in July.  At the start of the 2018/2019 school year I became Captain for our Girls Varsity Hurdle team.  My passion for T&F began with my own discovery of my unparalleled running speed. My story is worth reading. I discovered my love for athletics at the age of 5 when I kicked my first soccer ball. Since joining my first AYSO team at that age, I moved on to Signature and finally Club Soccer (2017) where I last held the position of RT FWD with CDA Slammers FC G01 EGSL.  It was during off season in my Freshman year at YLHS that I was approached by the Track Coach and invited to participate in Sprint and Relay events. What I discovered in Track and Field is my exhilaration for running and my passion for capitalizing on my gift of speed.  My speed on the soccer field has been the impetus to accelerating in T&F.  Sprints soon led to Hurdles where my agility coupled with my speed has allowed me to excel rapidly. I made the Varsity Hurdle Team during my Sophomore year. I give 100% in this sport as I give 100% in academics. My aspiration is to become a DVM.  Scholastically my strengths are in the sciences. My first Honor Roll recognition was in 2011 at the age of 10.  Every academic year thereafter I have achieved High Honor Roll status maintaining a GPA between 3.8 - 4.2.  I am a member of NSHSS. I was awarded the Certificate of Honor for Academic Achievement; 2017 + 2018 and received the Scholar Athlete Award 4th Qtrs/2017 + 2018; maintaining 2019 recipient status as well. I was recently presented with the 2019 YLHS Academic Excellence Award recognizing my 4.2 GPA, as well as CSF recognition for the 3rd year consecutive year. My philosophy in life is that each of us has the ability to excel in any area(s) we choose. I've known exactly what I've wanted to do in life since elementary school. My dedication and focus on my goals have allowed me to be a leader, a friend, a team player, and an individual with the spirit and fortitude to move forward and achieve my dreams. I'm a great candidate for your team because I will make a difference. I've been Captain on many of my Club Soccer teams, as well as Captain on my Sprint/Hurdle team.  I am very proud to mention my victory story: In March 2015, I was injured on the soccer field and broke my right ankle. Before breaking my ankle I was primarily a RT FWD.  After 6 months of physical therapy, strength and conditioning exercises I returned to the soccer field and assumed a position as LFT Attacking MID w/rotation to LFT FWD. I came back from this injury stronger, faster, better and with a higher level of endurance and determination than I had before.  At the end of my HS freshman soccer season I received the 2015/2016 Offensive MVP Award. This is who I am; someone who knows that all things are possible when you have passion. It is my dream to run 100HH at the collegiate level. I hope you will give me the opportunity to succeed for your track team. You won't be disappointed. Thank you. Most sincerely, Amanda Perez.
