My favorite activities at George School are varsity basketball and varsity soccer. Through playing two varsity sports, I’ve learned how important teamwork and leadership are on and off the court and field. In addition, I’ve learned to develop my time management skills through juggling two hour practices, games that include hour and a half bus rides, and homework from the six classes that I am enrolled in. These obstacles have not only made me a better student-athlete, but also have allowed me to understand the importance of representing George School to the best of my ability whether or not I’m wearing the green and white.
Personally, I am happy that George School strongly recommended that first year students play a team sport. I know that I made some of my best friends through freshmen soccer and have maintained those friendships to this day. Sports as a whole promote the coming together of students to achieve a common goal and they are a great way to make friends and develop relationships that go beyond the classroom. Overall, I am thankful for the opportunity to represent George School outside the classroom by being the goalkeeper for the varsity soccer team and the shooting guard for the varsity basketball team.
