    Hello!!
    I am a female high school senior from San Diego with a great desire to attend the Naval Academy. I am being recruited for Track and Field, which actually happens to be my life other than school. I recently received an appointment to NAPS 2011-2012! I am very stoked :D just waiting for a medical waiver.

    I have also been showing horses competitively for 14 years and loved every minute of it! I take AP and Honors classes and have a volunteer position on the USS Midway with the Airwing department! I am very excited to have found this forum and hopefully we can all be of help to one another!

    Safe to assume you will run track at NAPS :shake:? I plan to be doing the same (not recruited however). I'm a distance runner and we love to crack jokes on our sprinter friends. Here is one for the road- "Some people lack the intestinal fortitude to run distance, they are called sprinters:thumb:".

    HAHAHA great joke for the road but im not just a sprinter.....im a hurdler and jumper! definitely not for the faint of heart!!! we joke that we have the most character on the team! :)

    and I am from Del Mar.....but i never got a nomination! They just brought me out for an official visit for track and then I received my conditional letter of intent. I applied to Bilbrae but I was too late applying since I figured out the Navy was my calling in mid November haha
