My name is Lindy. I was born in Auburn, Maine. I have a younger brother, Dru, who I love to coach, tease and play the PS4 with. I work and study just as hard as I train. I am an avid reader of many genres.
I started running track through my home town summer recreational team at the age of 9. What started out as something to stay active and socialize during the summer quickly turned into a passion.
When I reached 7th grade at Auburn Middle School, I was primed to race. I worked hard at my events. I quickly earned the nickname "Windy Lindy." By the end of my 7th grade year, my 4x100 team broke the school record. Going into my 8th grade year, I had my sights on the 100m and 200m records as well. I poured my heart into every race and finally I was able to break the 100m record! And with my 4x 100m relay team, we beat our own record.
I continued into that summer racing as a 15 year old for the USATF Maine team for Auburn Recreation. I competed hard and made many new PRs for the 100m, triple jump and long jump. I was getting closer to breaking into the under 13 second club for the 100m. I made it and won all four of my events in the State meet. I now hold the 15 year old record for 100m and 200m for the state of Maine Summer USATF.
My freshman year at Edward Little HS, I lettered in indoor track. Coming into outdoor track, I knew that I needed to step up and take all my coach's advice to heart. I trained hard. I worked on my block starts. For outdoor track, I made the 100 point club. During the KVAC Class A Championships, I overcame being the underdog and won the 100m, 200m and 4x100 relay. I placed in the triple jump as well, earning my way to the state meet in all four of my events. The state meet, I PR'd twice in the 100m and triple jump. I placed in the 100m and 4x100m relay, earning a spot in the 100m at the New England Championships. It was an incredible experience.
I'm looking forward to my Sophmore year. I have my sights set for the 100m school outdoor record and improving in indoor track.
As far as my future career, I am still undecided.
