What are your plans after high school?

After high school I plan to attend a four year college where I would like to bowl and major in forensic accounting and minor in Spanish

What has been the best moment so far this season or in your high school career?

My best moment would have to be last year's state qualifying meet. When my team was in second place going into the last bakers game and with a combined effort we were able to come together as a team and win first place.

How was your off-season training impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?

My off-season was affected greatly because bowling alleys were shut down.

How has your participation in high school athletics helped you to grow as a person and student?

I have learned how to remain focused in high pressure situations and have good time management skills.

To you, what makes a good leader?

Someone who is able to have a positive attitude and lift up their teammates even when things are not going the way they planned.

Who is your favorite athlete? Why?

Travis Kelce is my favorite athlete because he maintains a positive attitude and puts his team success in front of his own.

What are three life skills that you have learned from athletics that will help you for the rest of your life?

As an athlete I have learned how to prioritize my time. I have learned how to set and achieve goals as an individual and with a group. Finally I learned how to listen not only to my coaches but my teammates as well.
