I am faced with mixed emotions on the occasion of this last 5K cross country meet.
The last Start, Several Colleges have been visited for the weeding out process of next years studies.
Two Miles to go...SAT's have been taken...ACT's this Saturday - Track and Chemistry top the wish list.
One Mile to go...Applications and essays to write and more interview-miles to go before we sleep.
The Finish line is in sight...Straight "A's" hard work and a runners stamina brought to the class room. A summer course of advanced micro biology...and a senior year full of Honors classes and Advanced placement courses. With all the entrance exams, essays and Captain of the cross country team...I'm so very proud words are just not enough.
The Schools are calling offering Track and science Scholarships, the world is your Oyster and you my son are the rarest of perls' you shine in your own unique way. Keep an eye on this one folks he'll make a name for himself and hopes to touch the rest of the world with his discoveries.
Spring Track is really his best events and as the Team Captain of that varsity group, big things are still yet to come.
Great running season...hard work and all the pressures of the college application process. Help Me wish Conor the best of luck in his Senior year.
Good Luck to the seniors who play varsity sports and still study for school work and college entrance exams
