This has been a popular feature in years past and now that the season is over, we want to invite all seniors to participate in our "Salute To Seniors" interview series. These Q&As highlight the Senior class as they move on to bigger and better things, and give seniors in the state a chance to share their stories and experiences.
You can send in your answers a few ways, either by answering the questions below in a Q&A format, writing out your own responses in a story, or even by shooting a short video to say "thank you" to the people who have impacted you the most.
E-mail your responses along with some pictures (with credits) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures should preferably be from MileSplit or ones that we have permission to use from whomever took the photos.
If you are an Arizona high school senior cross county / track and field athlete, feel free to participate.
Where are you from and when did you begin running/throwing/jumping/vaulting?
What was your most memorable race/throw/jump/vault/moment?
Did you listen to music before competing? If so what's on your playlist?
Do you have any superstitions or rituals that you go through when preparing for meets?
Who would you consider your biggest competition over your four years?
What was your greatest accomplishment?
If you could do it all over again what would you change about your running/throwing/jumping/vaulting career in high school?
What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?
What will you miss the most about competing for your team?
What advice would you give to younger athletes?
What is the most valuable lesson that you've learned from your coach?
What are your college plans? Have you decided on a major?
What was the deciding factor that made you choose (blank) University?
Who would you like to thank for your success in high school?
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
In addition to some of these I would also endeavor to add specialized questions for those participating, on such topics as the individual experiences of the athlete, style in events, and their respective college decisions.
