"I have run track my junior and senior years and I work hard at the sport in and out of practice and always try to improve," she said. "This was my last season of track and my favorite thing about it is the friends I've made along the way and the adrenaline I feel when running races.

"I like working out, reading, running, cooking, and working on my own small business. High school sports have taught me the value of hard work and overall made me a more disciplined person."

"I will not be on the track team, but I plan to join a running club in college. I'll be attending the University of Kansas in the fall. I was ranked number 6 in my class and have maintained A's all while being in three sports.

She closed by saying: "I want to thank everyone who supports me and helps me succeed. "I would like to thank my parents for coming to all of my meets and supporting me and my coaches for always pushing me to be my best."
