Winning the state tournament in basketball my junior year. The entire town of Neillsville came to support our team.

Advice to an athlete:

Sports have had such a positive impact on my life. I learned how to work together with my teammates to accomplish our goal of winning the state tournament. I have learned to respect my coaches and their constructive criticism that makes me a better athlete and person. I have also learned that in a small town like Neillsville, I am a role model to the youth because I am an athlete. Most importantly, sports have taught me to work hard to reach my goals. You can achieve anything you set your mind to as long as you put forth the effort.

Your inspiration:

When I was in elementary school, the high school girls basketball team made it to state. At that age, I thought that was a spectacular accomplishment and I was determined to follow in their footsteps. I look up to them now because I see how many of them have gone on to pursue challenging careers in medicine. They have inspired me to chase my challenging dream of becoming a pediatrician by dedicating myself to my education as well as my sports.
