Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I have many friends and family members who were and are student athletes in college. I am passionate about field hockey and I aspire to play at a high level. I want to continue playing after high school. My parents both played sports in college. Their closest friends are their former college teammates. They have very close relationships, and I have become part of those relationships as well through family functions, vacations, camping trips, and more. I enjoy being part of a family atmosphere, and my teammates will become another family for me when I am away at school.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I have demonstrated leadership on the field by being a good teammate. I try to help those players on my team that have trouble with certain drills or techniques. I will show them what they are doing wrong and help them to correct their mistakes. I also display good sportsmanship, I do not argue with referees or coaches. I am respectful of my own teammates and coaches as well as the other team's. I work hard in practice and do not miss practices. In past years I have helped organize off season "captain's practices" even though I was not a team captain at the time. I know it is important to get my teammates together on our own and work on our skills in order for our team to be successful. Last year I was selected to be a team captain, and I believe all of the above mentioned things contributed to being chosen a captain, not only for my field hockey team but my lacrosse team as well. Being a leader also means being a good student. I work just as hard with my academics as I do with sports. I have always taken honors or AP courses and have worked hard to maintain a 94 average in school and as a result I have been induced into the National Honor Society. I have also been elected Class Officer in all three years that I have attended Williamsville North and I have been selected to attend three different youth leadership camps and represent Williamsville North.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I think this means having a good balance of things. I eat healthy foods and drink lots of water. I do not drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. I exercise even if I am not playing a sport. I attend extra clinics and camps to improve my skills and be a better player. I try to get plenty of sleep and rest too. It can be hard to play sports, practice and still do homework and study. I try my best to manage my time wisely and get my school work done on time. All of these things help me pursue a healthy athletic performance.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

It is important to give back to the community however you can. Something as simple as spending time helping someone like a fellow student, a young athlete, or even a coach or teacher can make a difference in someone's life.

I have served as an Ambassador for the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Organization. (HOBY) I have attended HOBY leadership camp at the University of Rochester. We performed a community service project there by cleaning up a local cemetery. I have also organized and collected items for Crossroads House, an organization that provides care for those with severe health or medical problems in nearby Wyoming County, NY. I organized dates within my club field hockey organization and collected numerous items such as food, cleaning supplies, toiletry items, and cleaning supplies and I ended up making a very large donation to Crossroads House.

I am the President of my High School's LEAP Club- an environmental awareness and protection group. I have helped coordinate and have worked at several electronic waste drop off dates in my community.

In past summers I have volunteered to help run my church's annual parish picnic. I spent the day of the picnic helping in the kitchen. I did whatever job needed to be done; food preparation, set-up, clean up, or anything else that needed to get done. The picnics were a huge success and hundreds of people attended and had a great time. I am proud that I worked hard and was able to help my parish have such a great day.

I also have volunteered and worked at the Akron (NY) July 4th Celebration. Akron NY is my mother's home town and I have grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who live and work there. I have spent a lot of time there too, so I was happy to volunteer in Akron. I supervised a bounce house and had to make sure only a certain number of young children were on the bounce house at one time. I also had to make sure the children were behaving and not being reckless or dangerous so that nobody got hurt. Many children had a great, safe time and I am glad I was able to help make that happen.

I have also volunteered time for my Varsity and Club Coach Dalton Beaver. I volunteer at after-school intramural field hockey at Heim Middle School. I enjoyed helping the younger students with their skills and building their interest in playing field hockey.
