Personal Statement

Hi Coach! I would like to take the opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I started running track when I was in the 5th grade. At first, I participated as a fun activity to keep me in shape. However, over time I realized I had a natural jumping ability and began really focusing on how to improve. I made my high school varsity track team in the 7th grade. My 8th grade year, I was the Class A State Runner-Up in the long jump. That same year, I broke my middle school's long jump record that was previously held by my mother. I also set a new record for 13-14G at the Bluegrass State Games. Freshman season, I placed third in state and I used that loss as motivation for the next year. Sophomore season, I PR'd 18'2 and set a new high school long jump record. I was the 2019 Class A State Champion in the long jump and triple jump, which I had only competed in for 6 weeks prior to the state meet, and the State Runner Up in the 100m and 200m. I am a three time member of the All County Track Team. I was named the 2019 Track Athlete of the Year and also the 2019 Commonwealth Journal Female Athlete of the Year. This indoor season, I was the Class A KTCCCA Indoor State Champion in long jump and triple jump and set class indoor records for both events and a venue record for long jump. I qualified for the 2020 New Balance Indoor Nationals in the triple jump and the 2020 Outdoor Nationals in the long jump and the triple jump.

Track has taught me many things. I have learned that you don't PR in all of your meets and that is okay. You have to take your losses and turn them into motivation to work harder and do the best you can the next time. I have learned the value of commitment, discipline, leadership, and most importantly, teamwork. I have made long lasting friendships with my teammates and fellow competitors. I would not be successful if I didn't have their support.

I am not only looking for the best fit for me athletically, but academically as well. I am a straight A student, with a 4.3 weighted GPA, a 4.0 unweighted GPA, and a 30 on my ACT so far. I am ranked 1 out of 140 in my class both weighted and unweighted. I plan on becoming a Sports Psychologist where I will use my athletic experience to help other athletes perform to the best of their ability. 

In addition, I'm Vice President of my class, a member of National Honor Society, school vocal ensemble by audition, and KMEA All State Chorus. I'm an accomplished pianist, having played for school choirs, Baccalaureate, Graduation, and NHS Induction Ceremonies. I'm also a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and active in my church, serving in both the adult and youth praise bands.

Thank you so much for reading! :)
