I was never athletically gifted – so I had to work hard for every ability I have today. I started pole vault my freshman year, and eventually had a personal best of 8 feet. As my freshman year came to an end, I asked myself, “Do you want to be average, or do you want to push yourself to your potential and be great?” Then it truly began. I went to camps every week in the summer and fall – and then cleared ten feet my sophomore year. I continued to go to camps and threw myself into practice. In my junior year, after a lot of hard work, I cleared 11 feet 6 inches and was conference champion. Now, looking forward to my senior year, I want to be even better. “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” “You can do greater things than you can imagine – you just have to find something you are passionate about, give it your all, and don’t let off the gas.”
