Wants to wrestle in college at the DI level
When I get in high school, my goal is to be a 4 time state champ. I just started middle school wrestling at Hays Middle School in Prosper.
I have won the last two youth girls State titles and placed 6th in the boys 80 pound division. I managed to win my first 3 matches in that division and was close to making it to the finals.
Successes in School:
- I make all A’s while taking on cross country, track and field, and wrestling. When I’m not doing that, I enjoy reading, drawing, and hanging out with my friends.
Tell us about any community involvement:
- In the past, I have volunteered at animal shelters. During the last snow storm, I helped my neighbors by shoveling driveways and side walks.
Tell us something unique about yourself that you’d like to share with the Texas wrestling community:
- I started going to school a year earlier than I was supposed to. My parents believed challenging me mentally would better prepare me for life. Since I am a year younger than my potential competitors in Middle School and when I get to High School, I will have to work much harder to achieve my goals. After wrestling is over for me, I want to be a doctor.
