Favorite high school memory:
"My favorite sports memory from high school was being able to get to know everyone on the team, develop a family with everyone and have a good season."
Coach/Teacher who made the biggest impact:
"It is hard to pick one coach or one teacher because they all played a role in the dedication and work ethic I put into the sport. Every coach had a role in developing who I am as a runner today."
Thing you will miss the most about high school:
"I think I will miss the race days the most, not being able to wake up, go have fun and compete as a team. The travel meets where we get to have fun and just race. I will miss the team as well not being able to have them around every day will be different."
Best part about high school and this community:
"I think the best part about the community or school is that it is such a good environment for everything. It is easy to develop friendships and meet new people."
