I have always been interested in playing sports from a young age. I played soccer as my first sport at the age of 7 and 8, before I discovered track. I started running track at the age of 9, and knew it was what I wanted to compete in for as far as it would take me. I also played basketball and volleyball in middle school as well as competing in track for a club team named Denver Lighting. In high school, I have competed in several national meets for club teams, Denver lighting, and Angel Flight, as well as the high school team with Northfield High School. During my club competitions I took third at nationals at the indoor Maryland meet in the 400. As a freshman in highschool I qualified for Colorado state meet in the 200, and my sophomore year qualified for state in the 200 and 400 although I did not compete due to an injury. As a Junior I qualified for Colorado State in the 200, 4X100 and Sprint medley. I took 6th place 4A 200 with a 25.49 time. My sprint medley took second on which I was the 400 leg and had a split of 55.5. Our 4X100 took fifth place.
I'm looking to make my senior year the best possible, both in my grades and on the track. I would be a great candidate for any program that I compete for because I am coachable, and hunger to always improve and get better and better with each opportunity. I am committed to doing well academically in college and on the track to be the best student athlete that I can be. In college I am looking forward to pursuing a bachelors degree in physical therapy and then going further to get a masters and possibly a PhD, as this is a desire of mine to help other athletes coming after me to be on their best game, as my PT has done for me.
