SMA’s program does more than teach cooperation and competition. It is a way to challenge yourself everyday to try something new and to grow. The program gives girls opportunities to try new sports and find new passions. I started field hockey in ninth grade having never played before, and in four short years, with the help of many amazing coaches, I learned the sport and helped contribute to a state championship for our school. The highlights from my years at SMA will always include friendships I made on sports teams. The athletic program at SMA shaped and helped me through my high school years and I had the time of my life.
