College Application Question, Please Help

I'm going to be a senior this school year and I'm trying to start filling out my applications to colleges. First though, I'm working on getting my academic resume ready. Here is my question: I joined the cross country team my sophomore year, paid my dues, ran in a race, got my uniform, and got in the team picture. But, because of the running hurting my knees really badly, I had to quit the team after about 3 weeks. Can I still put on my resume and applications under sports that I was on the cross country team or no because it was only for a short while? Thanks so much!</p>

<p>It really really won’t matter. </p>

<p>If I were you though, I wouldn’t do it.</p>

<p>Here’s you in 60 years: “Hey Gramma/Granpa. I heard you were on the cross country team in HS. Is that true”</p>

<p>Then you’ll be squirming in your seat to figure out what to say. </p>

<p>That’s why you shouldn’t list it.</p>

<p>I was thinking more along the lines of showing I am well rounded and have good sportsmanship for scholarship purposes…</p>

<p>Eh, well-roundedness is overrated. I think it would make you look like someone who quit things too easily.</p>
