Dear Coach, 

My name is Tori Oshiro.

I just finished my junior year at Konawaena High School on the island of Hawaii.  In regards to why I am writing this letter, I am interested in swimming at your university and would like to know more about the program offered. 

My swim times are 1:10.23 in the 100 yard breastroke, 2:28.56 in the 200 yard breastroke, 18:45.45 in the 1650 yard free, 11:13.72 in the 1000 yard freestyle and 5:26.26 in the 500 yard freestyle.  I swim for the Kona Aquatics Swim Club and my coaches are Steve Borowski and Eric Rhodes. I typically swim between five and ten thousand yards a day, five days a week. I've been swimming competitively for almost nine years.

In the classroom I have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.77 and have taken a number of honors and plan to take AP courses this school year. I am in the top 12th percentile of my class and have been previously recognized on Honor Roll.  I have been involved with Class Council and Student Government these past three years and am taking the role of student body president this upcoming year. I am also involved in National Honors Society, Leadership Class where I have headed numerous school wide events, including an event where we reached out to younger kids in the community. I was also an officer for our schools Japan Club. 

In terms of athletics outside the pool, I participate in rough water swims every year (distances ranging between one and six miles).

I look forward to hearing back from you,


Tori Oshiro
