Her passion and talent follows her not just in track, but throughout everything she does. She explained that she uses the ambition and productivity involved in track throughout all aspects of her life.

   Teammate Julia Cowell described Andree as a person who brings much energy and positivity to the team. Cowell explained that her radiant attitude really helps them come together as a team. She believes Andree is always up for whatever challenge she is given.

    Andree explained that her experience in track is helping her in her daily life. Her personality makes her a key teammate; however, her leadership skills, kindness, and ambition help guide her through everything she does in life.

“Track provides the perfect way for me to clear my head, so it improves my ability to focus on school and work towards both my academic and athletic goals,” said Andree.

    Andree pushes herself to be the best she can be, and to achieve what she sets out to do like getting good grades, getting into a good college, working hard in track.

    Overall,  Andree is an exceptional athlete as well as a smart and determined student. While she has already accomplished a few of her goals, she plans to accomplish many more in the future.
