ring my senior year of high school, I had a wrestling rival during my senior wrestling season by the name of Frankie Negrini. My rival was from a rival town called Pompton Lakes that my team would always have intense matches against. This kid had always beat me by maybe one point or even two points. The kid always was one step ahead of me every time we stepped on the wrestling mat. The many times I had loss to him it just made my confidence just go down the drain a lot of the time.
Even, some consider cheerleading as just a “hobby,”but competitive cheer has helped me grow as an individual. I learned dedication, time management, sacrifices. I spent countless hours in the gym working on skills to be the best. If there is any lesson that cheerleading teaches you, it is how to be the best as a team and individually. You have to be determined and dedicated to be successful.
However, during the Districts race, around the beginning of the third mile, I experienced a pain in my side unlike any pain I had ever felt before. It was a difficult race to finish, as I wanted to give up. It would have been acceptable if I gave up, as we later learned I experienced a diaphragm spasm. Instead, I remembered the goal I set for myself, to be fully present in every workout and race, and to push through every obstacle I faced. So, I ran on, finished with a career personal record.
Soccer Heartbreak and Triumph The weather was intense in the month of April. My high school soccer playoffs were just around the corner. So, training was an absolute nightmare for the team and I.

I ended up finishing 8th all-American.

In the beginning it was very hard to be recognized by the coaches at Tuslaw because the school is known for their wrestling. The community actually calls it the “legacy program”. A few weeks into season it was my time to show I was ready to be something great at this school. Wrestle offs began and I was competing for the starting spot at 195 pounds and my opponent was Scottie Wolheter the returning state qualifier from the year before. It was a hard fought battle after the first period I was down 2-0, after the second I was still down but this time it was 2-1, with short time left in the third period I got a takedown and was able to get the win 3-2.

Immediately upon arrival I was intimidated by the track, it looked like it went on for miles in comparison to the track at my school. The one hundred

I competed in cross-country for the first and last time my senior year, and it is true when they say that cross-country is a mental competition. It was by far the toughest sport I have ever participated in and it really hit me when I was running in the Western Dubuque race. I was over half way done with the meet, but the pain from the pounding in my head to the tight pressure in the soles of my feet was beating me up. My mind was constantly reminding me of the pain I was feeling and how easy it would be to just stop running. As I was making my way down a hill, I could hear coach Olson in the background telling me to keep going.
No one can avoid failure. No person has ever been 100% successful at everything. But people hate to talk about their failures, and try to avoid it at all cost. Having participated in the interscholastic sport of wrestling, I have been given many opportunities to succeed or fail. I generally succeed most of the time.
