My name is Kate Immergluck. I am an 11th grader at Decatur High School, in Decatur, Georgia, a small suburb adjacent to Atlanta. Since Freshman year, I have been a starter on the varsity lacrosse and varsity cross country teams. I have played on select teams for the Hotlanta Lacrosse Club for several years and am now playing for the Eagle Stix Lacrosse Club. I love lacrosse and it has always been my dream to take my game to the next level. I have worked hard to develop as a player, and I know that the opportunity to play at the collegiate level means working even harder. I am so grateful to my wonderful coaches for teaching me so much.
I believe my strengths in lacrosse are quickness in attacking close to the net, dodging, accurate passing, aggressive defense, directing offense and maintaining field-wide vision, endurance, and solid stick work. I believe that these strengths come from my passion for the game. I have worked hard at all of these skills, but I am constantly reaching to improve in these areas as well as other aspects of my game.
In school, I have pushed myself to succeed and perform in the classroom. I have achieved A or A+ grades in most of my high school classes thus far and am currently ranked 20th in my class (of 267 students). I regularly score in the top 1-2 percentile on nationally-referenced standardized tests (Measures of Academic Progress, or MAP) and the PSAT. I am taking 12th grade advanced math as junior, have served on the staff of the award-winning school magazine, and am pursuing an International Baccalaureate diploma. I have also founded a Habitat for Humanity club, working with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. Lacrosse has actually given me the ambition and perseverance I need to excel in school and in life. In the future, I would like to see myself pursuing my passion, whether it is in lacrosse or in a professional field.
On the field, I try to help set the intensity level for my team. I believe a player should always play with the power and passion behind their love for the game, whether it is during a 6 am practice or a championship game. I know that, if nothing else, I can make a difference for my team by keeping my intensity up and being an example for my team. If we give everything we have during practice, we will give that and more when it really counts.
Off the field, I have worked to develop the lacrosse community in my area. Last summer, I came up with the idea to run a lacrosse clinic for younger lacrosse players. In my area, girls lacrosse is still gaining momentum, and this clinic was a way for me to help the sport flourish locally.
At school, I started a Habitat for Humanity club and now serve as its president.
I am conscious of how nutrition and rest affect my game. I make sure to drink plenty of water and take vitamins daily so that my body is prepared for strenuous physical activity. I also practice as much as I can because I know that what I WILL do today, directly affects what I CAN do tomorrow.
It is so important to practice and focus, but to be successful, I also have to find time to relax and unwind. I taught myself guitar for that purpose. I am not very good, but it helps me deal with the stress of school and athletics.
I believe in giving back to my community in many different areas. I have been involved in several community-oriented activities. In my junior year, I started a new organization at my high school called the Decatur High School Habitat for Humanity club, which works with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity to support H4H activities in Atlanta, including building housing for disadvantaged families. I now serve as President of the club.
I have worked as a volunteer assistant coach for U13 and U15 recreational girls lacrosse teams, and have coached girls in an in-house, under 3rd grade program. I am also a certified referee. I have benefited from lacrosse more than I can say, and probably even realize, and so I want to help other girls have the same opportunities.
I have also volunteered with organizations such as the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, and a local homeless shelter.
