My name is Emily Pilcher, I am 5 feet tall and weigh about 120 pounds. I consider myself a sprinter. I love to run the 100 and do the long jump. My fastest time in the 100 meter is 12.0. As a freshman in high school, I went to state as a varsity athlete and ran a 13.5 100 and won 5th place. I have been running competitively since I was 7 years old and since then I have developed a passion for track and field. I have been a varsity athlete throughout middle school and high school. My senior year, which is this year, I plan to take my running to a new level. I would like to win state in the 100 and in the long jump and I am willing to do everything it takes to achieve those goals. I moved to Grenada, West Indies, in the middle of my sophomore year with my parents. Moving to the Caribbean opened up a whole new world in my track life. I trained with some of the fastest kids in the world. My times improved greatly, with help from my coaches, by altering my technique and form along with my start out of the blocks. I was fortunate enough to participate in a couple of track meets where a possible future Olympic athlete, Kerani James, who now attends the University of Alabama was competing. While I was in Grenada, I was elected team captain and that was an unforgettable experience. I worked extra hard to show leadership skills. During the year and a half that I lived in Grenada I earned titles such as, Best Female Athlete of the Year in my school (2 years in a row). I was the national high jump champion for Grenada in 2009, for my age group. Even though my time for the 100 was fast, I didn't earn any medals in inter-island meets. I did earn 1st place trophies in my school for the fastest 100 times and for breaking school records in more than one event.
I am now back in my original high school, Beaverhead County High School in Dillon, Montana. This spring I will run varsity track and I plan to win state and set new state records. I always put 110% effort into every workout even if it is a recovery workout. I always am one of the last athletes to leave the field because I think the stretching and cool down routines are important. I am open to any school that has my academic program and where I can also compete in track. I would prefer mountains or warm-sunshine weather. The ideal school size is 5,000 or bigger. I prefer a most selective academic level, but I know I can get a great education at any school as long as I apply myself and organize my time wisely. I am open to Division I and II. My family and I have applied for financial aid.
My major is pre-med, biology. I want to be a dermatologist and specialize in plastic surgery. My athletic goals are to run track as a freshman in college and continue track throughout college. I want to improve my times until they are as fast as possible. I want to reach my fullest running potential. I want to be that freshman runner that everyone talks about. I will continue to strive until I reach my goal of being the fastest I can be. Track is my passion.
