ST. THOMAS ACADEMY, Sr., TRACK
Schneeman is wrapping up his senior season as a member of the Cadets’ boys’ track team two months after winning the 100-yard freestyle in the Class 1A swimming and diving state meet. He was instrumental in the Cadets winning back-to-back state championships in the pool in 2012 and 2013. Here is a closer look at Schneeman:
The best movie I’ve seen in the past year: “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Outgoing, selfless, dedicated.
Three songs I never skip on my iPod are … “I Drive Your Truck” by Lee Brice; “Cruise Remix” by Nelly; “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons.
What is your favorite meal prior to a meet? Jimmy John’s Gargantuan sub.
At my first varsity practice, I felt … like I did not belong there, but that I had to be willing to work hard to make myself fit in.
What is your most memorable moment as a high school athlete? Bringing back the [swimming] state championship trophy my junior year.
If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be? That St. Thomas Academy is not allowed to get kicked out of the [Classic Suburban] conference for being too good.
How do you balance school and sports during the year? When I get home from my sports, I jump right into my homework, so that I can still get to bed at a decent time.
Do you have a secret talent — and if so, what is it? I can vibrate my eyes and hold a handstand for a long time.
In 10 years, I hope I’m … successful, secured in a nice home, and a good husband and father.
