I am passionate about track and field, I love the preparation, camaraderie, and competition. I am naturally shy and track and field allow me to express myself, both verbally and physically. Additionally, it affords me the opportunity to be with my peers that have a common interest and goal. I love the uniqueness of the sport in that it is both an individual and team sport simultaneously. Your first place is not just a first place for you but first place points for your team.
In 2018 I had a respectfully successful season, I qualified Georgia High School Association ("GHSA) State Finals in four (4) events the 200 meters, 400 sprints, 4x100 relay and 4x400 relay I earned medals in three (3) of the four. In the 2018 USATF summer track season, I earned All American status in the 4x400 (split time 55.8) with a Bronze Medal and Silver Medal in the 4x800 (split time 2:21).
This season I had the opportunity to compete against some of the most gifted athletes in the United States many who some were ranked in the top ten nationally. After talking to them about there goals and dreams, listening to there strategies, observing their commitment, as well as training with and competing against them I concluded my 2018 season not with just medals, trophies and winners caps, with a greater appreciation of what is required to be ones best.
As I approach my junior year in High School I will take what I learned and experienced and prepare myself educationally, psychologically and physically for a breakout season. Please stay tuned for my 2018-2019 competition season!
My goals and dreams include being selected to the National Honor Society this semester (3.8 Core G.P.A. or higher), graduate from Woodward Academy High School, Summa Cum Laude, (4.1 GPA or higher) and earn a scholarship to a college or university that has high academic and athletic expectations. I want to major in the Biological Sciences with the expectation of becoming a Medical Doctor. As a student-athlete, I want to compete at the highest level, contribute in a meaningful way and win often.
