To Whom It May Concern:
Taylor Wickey has been a member of the Medina High School Cross Country team for the past two years, and a track team member for the past three years. Having been Taylor’s coach, I feel I can accurately speak of her character, skills and potential.
Taylor puts effort into everything she does. She is involved in a wide variety of school activities, and excels at all of them. On a team of over 40 athletes, she is a team leader by word and action. She has participated in 3 state meets as a member of our 4 x 800 meter relay, earning all-Ohio honors by placing in the top 6 all three years. Her season best in the 800 meters has gone from 2:24 as a 9th grader, to 2:20 as a 10th grader, and finally to 2:17 this past season as a junior. She also excelled at 400 meters and 1600 meters during the past season.
As impressive as her athletic achievements has been Taylor’s growth as an individual. Her grades have been excellent throughout her high school years, and she has matured as a person as well. She supports her teammates, is always willing to help the coaches, and acts in the best interest of the team.
I have no doubt that Taylor will be a success throughout her college career both on and off the athletic field. She balances athletics with top notch work in the classroom, in addition to volunteering in the community.
