Rocky Hill SAM: Abigail Smith

Abigail is a junior who has competed in both indoor and outdoor track since she was a freshman. She competes in the 55-meter, 300-meter and 400-meter races, as well as the 4×100 and 4×400-meter relays.

Academic accomplishments: Honor roll for most of high school career

Athletic accomplishments: Qualified for state meets every year

How I prepare for a game: I boost my own confidence by talking myself up in my mind. It’s mostly internal, because it’s not a team sport. I just try to be positive and go into it like I’m going to do my best, and set a goal like a personal record.

What do you hope to accomplish this season: I’m .10 of a second from qualifying for the 300, so I want to qualify for that for the states, and the CCC, and hopefully set a new personal record for both of those.

Favorite pro or college athlete:

Kobe Bryant, because he was so successful at a young age, and went right into the pros.

College plans:

I really want to run in college, so I want to get my times better for that. I don’t know where I want to go yet.
