Do you think my classes for next year are manageable?

Hello, everyone! I am in need of some advice. I am a sophomore in high school, and I currently do not know what I want to exactly do with my life. I'm a pretty busy person and I currently have two AP courses, which I manage just fine. My schedule for next year is:
Honors PreCal
AP Language and Composition
AP Biology
AP US History
Study Hall (I feel as if I should drop this "class")
and Honors Spanish.

I am wondering if I should drop any of my AP Courses and also if it's a better decision to do AP Environmental Science instead of AP Bio. I am in Cross Country, Girls Wrestling, and Track and Field- ALL of which take up so much time! I don't know if I could handle my rigor and sports at the same time- I think my expectations for doing well in these classes and succeeding in my extracurricular activities is unrealistic. I am willing to drop Cross country. Do you think I should adjust my schedule? Does anyone else have experience with 3 AP courses and sports?

    This is going to vary from student to student.

    How are you doing this year? How are your grades? Do you feel stressed out? Do you like the subjects in which you plan on taking APs?

    I would stick with AP Bio over APES if I were you. Due to the sports, I would recommend keeping the study hall. However, even if you do drop study hall, I think you will be able to manage. I've had a heavy course load with sports before and even though it was stressful at times it is totally possible to succeed. I read assignments on the bus to games, did homework during my lunch period. You CAN make it work.
    Good luck :)
