Ok, I just wrote this, I know it probably sucks. Any pointers?

Playing on a competitive tennis team has helped me to grow immensly throughout my four years of high school. There were many experience and challenges throughtout which helped me mature. I gained responsibility, making sure to show up to practice on time and knowing that a win could depend almost solely on my performance. Having to work and train hard in order to win has been quite humbling, for I know that I'm not the best at everything and have to try my best to excel. My experience has prepared me to work hard, no matter what. I'm sure my college experience will be similar, as I am ready to dive in head on.

Too general and too corny. This essay has no word limit and many people suggest using the opportunity to include another 500-word activities essay. I suggest doing that, while using specific examples of how you developed as a result of being on the tennis team.
