Academics High School: Current Year:
Loreto College, Marryatville, Adelaide South Australia Year 12 (2013)
Graduated Year 11 with straight Aâ€™s, including an additional Year 12 science subject (Nutrition) and received a South Australian Certificate of Education perfect score of 20/20 A+ with Merit.
My objective is to combine my academic studies and sporting talent in this once in a lifetime opportunity, and to explore the opportunities within Athletics. The ability to take my running to the next level whilst completing for a College will give me the opportunity to participate and compete in the sport I love in a way in which would not be possible within Australia. I have the experience and motivation to work hard in both required attributes in order to leave an impact on the college team I represent.

Legacy Catherine wants to compete in college and make a name for herself not only in sport, but in the classroom as well.
What makes you different to other athletes? I think I would be a strong addition to any College team as I love working hard in association with others and bringing out the best in one other.
College Goals My demanding schedule has allowed me to learn how to combine my current studying while gaining top results at national level. This ability will allow for me to integrate well into the college team I represent. I want to be the No.1 athlete on the team and will do what it takes to win national championships.
Life Goals What do you want to achieve in life. -Pursue a career in medicine or a science based area such as dietetics/ nutritionist. Although also interested in veterinary science -Compete at an international level such as the Commonwealth Games and Olympics in Track and Field and also in other world championship events
Additional Information At the end of Year 9 in high school I was selected as part of an Australian Cross country team to travel to the US. We visited California, Nevada, LA and Las Vegas and participated in various High school meets, such as the Sunny Hills invitational . At the time I was more of a triathlete and not a very strong runner however I had the time of my life competing and making friends with US high school athletes and coaches. Ever since then I have loved America and when I was introduced to the fact I could compete for a college there whilst completing an undergraduate degree, all my other post-school plans were forgotten. This was my ultimate dream, I never would have though back then in year 9 this was a possibility, but now that it is, I would do anything to be able to achieve a scholarship and have the chance to be a part of and compete on a College team.
