2022 Hoosier Hills Conference: All-Conference Honorable Mention: Shot Put
Multi-sport athlete who also plays volleyball, but loves music, animals, and the outdoors.
I have played volleyball since second grade and started weightlifting as a part of the workouts. My strength coach strongly suggested that I start throwing my sophomore year, and I fell in love with the sport. Discus and shot put both fascinated me not only because of the mechanics, but the strength and finesse that plays into it. I want to throw in college to continue to compete in the sport I love, meet new people, and make myself a better athlete/person.
This year, my junior year, I was the oldest thrower because we had no senior throwers. Before each meet I would pump up the underclassmen with encouraging words and asked them to make goals for themselves like I do. Off the field, at the jobs I have had, others would come to me for help or assistance with what they were working on and I would happily attend. When I noticed the people I was working with had things that needed to be done, I would lead by example and start working on the task to encourage them to work with me.
I maintain a healthy athletic performance by keeping a daily routine of the things I need to do to stay in shape and/or stay healthy. I also eat properly, weightlift, work on throwing technique in my free time, stay on track with schoolwork, and also give myself time to rest too.
