I am a 5"8", 130 pound athlete who specializes in all sprint events. My favorite event is the 400 meter dash. I like the 400 because it requires speed, strength and stamina to run the race. My personal best in the 400 is 56.80 which I accomplished during the 2012 AAU Jr. Olympics (14th overall). I am now in my senior year of high school where I hope to improve my time and defend the 400, 4 x 400 and team titles earned at the WIAA State Championships in 2012. I have been running competitively since I was 7 years old. I am a hard worker who leaves everything on the track, and I do my very best in the classroom. I have taken AP and honors classes throughout my high school tenure to improve my chances of getting into college. It is my dream to run track at the college level because I know the competition and learning experience will be beneficial to my long term goals in life.
