What are your top three athletic accomplishments?
“My top athletic accomplishments would be finishing as the Mid-Western region runner up, receiving
the MVP award for our tennis team, and being undefeated in the conference and throughout
playoffs (all last year in 2014 season). In addition, I was part of the SCC All Conference team
and Mid-Western regional team.”

 

What is your role on the Marvin Ridge
team this year?

 
“I am co-captain of the team this year. We have a fairly young team so making everyone feel
welcome is an important aspect to help keeping the team strong.”

 

What are your goals for this season?

“My personal goal for the season would be to qualify for the state tournament again. My goals
for the team would be to create a good team atmosphere and win our conference.”

 

What is you’re favorite part of playing on the team?

 

“I enjoy being able to represent my school for a sport and getting the opportunity to play
against competitive teams.”

 

How well do you perform in the classroom?

“Academics are very important to me because I believe a good academic base helps with success
in the future. I try to make sure to put academics above most of my other priorities. I receive all
A’s and have a 4.75 weighted GPA. In addition, I am part of the National Honor Society and Beta
Club. I am also the Junior Class Historian for the Student Council.”

 
How do you balance school and sports?

 
“I find it very difficult at times to balance both school and extracurriculars, but I make sure to
prioritize my work. There are a few late nights when I have to get everything done, but I like to be
busy and involved in many different things.”

 

What other activities do you participate in off the tennis court?

 

“I volunteer at my church, Saint Matthew Catholic Church. There I have been a group leader for the
annual VBS program and I am currently a peer minister to prepare students for an upcoming sacrament
of Confirmation. I have also volunteered at YMCA camps, such as Camp Boomerang which is
a camp for autistic children. Also, I enjoy traveling to the mountains, running, and hanging out with
my friends. I have completed two half marathons and loved it. I also run winter track for Marvin
Ridge”

 

Have you placed any thoughts into college?

 

“I am not really thinking about playing varsity in college but possibly club or intramural. It would
be great to continue to play tennis throughout my life! I would like to study nutrition in college and
eventually become a Registered Dietitian.”
