I am an eighth-grade student at Rim Country Middle School. I have participated in school sports for the last three years, in cross-country and in track and field.
I would like to thank all of my coaches for the help and support that I have been given as a student-athlete. Track and cross-country coach, Coach Wallace, and track coach, Coach Wilcox, have mainly coached me, however, there are also other coaches that have helped me become a better athlete.
This past year, in cross-country, the sixth- and seventh- and eighth-grade girls teams both brought home first place trophies. Our coaches put a lot of time and effort into our practices.
They always find fun things to do at practices, such as having us run with potato chips in our hands to perfect our running forms. I feel that our coaches deserve a thank you from all the athletes.
I am also looking forward to working with the high school coaches once I become a freshman.
Thank you to all the school coaches who help the athletes in our school sports.
