COMPETITIVE DIVING
 
In the fall of 2007,  at 11-years-old, my twin sister and I competed on the high school swim and dive team.  At our first meet, we earned varsity scores.  By the end of the season, we'd learned all the dives required for varsity standing.  I would like to add... we were eleven years old.
 
My twin sister Rebecca was the only freshman out of six high schools to earn a place at the divisional meet.  Even though she had the flu, she beat out the majority of the teenage girls in the competition, including three high school seniors, and I want to add... she was only 11 years old.
 
Since the end of dive season, we have continued to work on our dives.  We are now doing the forward 1.5 somersault, which is beyond the required dives for varsity level.  It's more like a college-level dive, and I would like to add... we're 11 years old.
 
CHESS
 
In January 2008, we competed in our first chess tournament ever, and qualified for state.  A few months later, we qualified for nationals.
 
GYMNASTICS
 
In March 2008, we joined the gymnastics club.  Most of the girls have been in the club since they were five, so we have a lot of catching up to do.  We can do front walkovers, front handsprings, etc., but we're behind in the backward stuff, the bars and beam.  We're doing great on vault because of our training on the high school dive team.
 
TENNIS
 
In the Spring of 2008, we competed on the high school tennis team.  The coach paired us as doubles partners.  We were undefeated on the high school tennis team.
