Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I love to compete. Being a teammate and a competitor allows me to do so in a healthy, challenging, and exciting way. Although there are good days and bad days, personal bests and times that are nowhere close, the adrenaline, the sportsmanship, the cheering, the environment of being an athlete, no matter if I’ve been the best or the worst in the race, has always been a part of my life. I’ve been in some sort of sport every year since I was very little. I’m also the oldest of my many siblings so I’m pretty eager to compete. After high school, college is the next option, and I’m not sure what my years would consist of if I didn’t have the opportunity to have an athletic family again.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

As a current student athlete, my personal goal is to remain a positive and successful student at all times, on and off the track. Ever since I started playing sports, I had somewhat of an understanding of how important developing good study habits and getting superior grades was for my future. Now, as a freshman, those skills have helped me in my journey into high school. I have a goal that is set for all four years of my high school career: to maintain a cumulative GPA of a 3.5 or above. My first quarter as a freshman I earned a 3.7GPA.

I pursue "Healthy Athletic Performance" as a student athlete through hard work, determination and practice. These three keys are important to not only my academics but also my athletics. Having healthy athletic performance is achieved when an athlete pushes themselves, does what is best for the team and is able to get back up when they fall. Athletics involve not only our physical capabilities but also our mental thoughts.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.
