Meg ran cross country until 9th grade, and she even went to state to compete against other schools. Meg is also a pole vaulter for track and field which she has done since 8th grade. She has placed at district, regional, and state. Last year, Meg placed 3rd in pole vault for LSU Indoor State, and she placed 4th in pole vault for LSU Outdoor State. She also won Ascension’s Outstanding Field Athlete. Meg was a member of the Cajun Prairie Club in 8th grade, and she became president of the club from 9th to 11th grade (when the club ended). In 11th grade, Meg also participated in the French Baking Club where she was the secretary. This year, Meg is in the Poetry Club. In her free time, she likes to hangout with her friends and take naps. Meg’s best friend jokes about how every time Meg goes over to her house she says that Meg is not going to fall asleep, yet she will look over and Meg will be passed out. A fun fact about Meg is she is allergic to bananas, and she is obsessed with true crime documentaries. Some pieces of advice for the underclassmen is branch out and try new things because you never know what that can lead to. Junior year is easier than senior year. Finally, do not take people’s meanness to heart because at the end of day it is your life, not theirs, so listen to yourself always.
