Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
The things I enjoy most about my sports are staying in shape, meeting new people, and the heart-pounding moments when I step up to the start line. I always like to be active and doing a sport throughout the year. Getting to know your competition is always fun, too. And the thrill of stepping up to the start line at every meet is a great feeling.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
The day I was the first one to cross the finish line for the 100-meter race for the first time.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
The team inspires me; everyone gets along during track and we all motivate each other to get better.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
There isn't enough time in the day. I could use another two hours in the day to get more work done.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
I will be attending college after I graduate. I just haven't picked between Clarkson University and Rochester Institute of Technology.
