I have had a long four years here at Lakewood High School. The four years are coming to an end here rather quickly. I have enjoyed my four years here at Lakewood. I liked playing soccer, baseball and basketball. I played soccer and baseball all four years here, I only played basketball for my first two years here.

My senior year was a good year in my sports career were my teams and I were able to beat Saint Ed’s in both soccer and baseball. I was the goalie for the soccer team when we beat Ed’s two to zero and won the community cup. I was the first baseman for the baseball team when we beat Ed’s eight to six. My senior year soccer team was the district runner-up. The soccer team also won the Riverwood cup which is between us and River the winner get the cup for the next year.¬† We were able to won in penalty kicks after the final score was a tie, I blocked River’s last kicks winning us the cup.

My advice to underclassmen is to do as much as you can in high school. Play any sports you can play, and join any clubs you can. Also try to fill your schedule while you are a underclassmen so your senior year is easy, fun and enjoyable.

I will be attending the University of Cincinnati next year. I will be majoring in Finance. I am very excited to attend Cincinnati next year with a few of my classmates from here. GO BEARCATS!
