Student, Ankeny High School, Class of 2016,
The most popular activities at Ankeny are sport related activities such as football,track, and basketball. More people of the same friend group go out for the above activities, but I prefer cross country and would recommend it over any other activity. The team consists of such a diverse group of people. It is fun to interact with people who one would have never met without the involvement of the team. It is amazing to see how a person one does not know so well at the beginning of the season, turns out to be your best friend at the end of the season. Going through the highs and lows of cross country with some amazing people is definitely the best thing out there. I would definitely recommend that in high school, one goes out of their comfort zone to push themselves in challenging runs and challenge themselves to make a more diverse friend group!
