    Are you a junior or a senior? I am assuming a junior, with projections for lettering in Track or Cross Country. Isn't one a Fall sport and one a Spring sport? I would say so far if you are a junior you are doing well. There will be others with there opinions. Colorado is tough for Summer Seminar as it is an outreach program, but it has been done. Good Luck!

    Try and explain what these awards and honors are. As an outsider, I (and possibly the academy) do not know what they mean.
