Track & Field
I was the number 1 runner on my high school's varsity cross-country team and long distance track & field team. I achieved a top 26 ranking at the state championships and top 5 in the conference. Each year I obtained all-conference honors and won 8 varsity letters, plus 3 more in skiing.
