Personal Statement

I began to love the sports of cross-country and track my 7th grade year when I tried running for the first time. In sports, I work with the younger athletes and new members of the team to help them get an understanding of the sport. I am also a team captain on this year's track team and am always encouraging others to do their best in their events. I'm also very active in other clubs in activities. Currently, I am the President for my local FFA chapter, along with Sentinel for Washington FFA District VI, and the President of my 4-H Club. I am also the President of the Walla Walla Wagonettes, a horseback drill team. For my junior and senior year, I will be involved with the Running Start program at Walla Walla Community College. My PR's this year are : 2.6 miles-17:23  3 miles- 19:06   5K-19:18
