ML: They all say this but I’ve been a part of the team for 6 years and it flew. Don’t miss out on the opportunities in front of you because you’re already on to the next goal. Because 6 years later, you’re regretting wishing time went faster. I made the best friends in this sport, and I’ll miss it more than anything else in high school.
