2x state cross country meet participant with a PR of 17:06. Our CC team had won districts 11 years in a row and been to state for about 6 years in a row. Not a great time, but I dropped 5 minutes in four years of high school thanks to a coach who pushed us and great teammates.
Wish I would have figured out the 400 was what I should have been running through all of high school track. It wasn't until our "distance 4x400" team nearly beat our normal 4x400 team that the coach forced me into the 400 my senior year. I was an alternate for the state meet, which the team placed 2nd at. In the hundreds of races I ran through jr. high and high school, I only won our county 800 meet, the last on my home track under the lights.
Hit a game winning 3 in CYO basketball my senior year. Coached CYO for five years after graduating and my last team placed 4th in Ohio. We were by far the smallest school to make it to the final four and lost both the final 4 game and the consolation game in double OT. They were heart breakers, but the kids played their hearts out.
