Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.
-
Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I practice 3-4 times per week for water polo and practice 5 days a week for my high school swim team. I work out with a private trainer and do my online Bridge (thru ODP) as much as I can. I eat extremely healthy, train and study as much as possible to maintain my grades.

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