Now thousands of miles later, I have finished my fourth season of cross country and my fourth season of track is just beginning. I will wholeheartedly admit deciding to run has been one of the best decisions of my entire life, who knew your parents could be so right. My experience has been so much more than learning to be a better runner. The number of times I have heard Mr. Berzonsky speak about character or the pyramid of success is too many

The worst part of it was I had a close friend, Cooper, who tried out for the team with me and made it. From that point on, I was determined to make the team. Unfortunately, the only golf teams a sophomore can play on are Varsity and Junior Varsity, which contain the top twelve players out of all of the students at my high school. Another very unfortunate circumstance was the fact that I attended the largest high school in the state of Oklahoma, containing almost 3600 kids.

Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team. I have been on the most successful club team around. We have gotten third place at our national tournament two years in a row, and also won our national tournament one year. People say “you do not know what you have had, until you have lost it.” The meaning of this quote has become appallingly clear, as it has become my reality. Up until now, I have always taken volleyball for granted.

Since sophomore year, I barely missed the state track meet and the Free State record by a couple of inches. After my last track meet in my junior year, I was determined to finally accomplish the 35’11 triple jump that I aspired for years. I became committed to the sport, training every morning and evening to perfect a jump that a Free State student has not accomplished. Little by little, I grew out of the goal, realizing that there are more important objective in life to worry about and to
I surprised myself by getting to golf varsity as the fourth golfer out of six. I accomplished this by putting in many long hours to become the best golfer I could be. I even placed first out of all the other girls at a meet. I will never forget that magical moment. The sound of my teammates and coach cheering as they heard my name being called out.
