BiographyMy name is Drew Zink, and I am a sophomore at Lincoln Charter School (1A) in Denver, North Carolina-- the Class of 2020. I currently run cross country and track, and as a freshman I was the only male athlete at my school to compete in state championships in three sports last year. I also practice with the soccer team for cross training to work muscles I normally wouldn't use in running.
This was my first year participating in organized running, and some of my accomplishments for cross country include a top-five finish at Regionals, as well as making the All-Conference and All-Region teams. In indoor track, I qualified for State in the 3200, finishing 11th overall. In outdoor track, I finished 7th in the 3200 and 8th in the 1600 at the state meet. I also was named a member of the All-Lake Track and Field team, which included athletes from all classifications.
So far, I have taken all honors classes in my high school career. I currently hold a 4.0 unweighted GPA and will be taking Senior level Pre-Calculus this year. I am also active in my school's Environmental Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes program.
I am very active in my community through my Boy Scout Troop in Sherrills Ford, NC and my chapter of the Order of the Arrow in Newton, NC. I have helped build park benches, assemble permanent tents, and clean entire camps with these programs. I have assisted many scouts working on their Eagle Scout projects, and I will begin work on my Eagle Scout project this fall.
