Thanks for sharing your profile. You've got a strong GMAT (though the verbal score looks a little low - what was the percentile on that?), but as you know, a low GPA. I think your explanation will definitely help though - makes perfect sense that a serious athlete would struggle with time management and sounds like you have an upward trend in your GPA, so that's good. Professionally, your background is strong and it seems like you have strong community and extracurricular activities to boot.
All in all, I think you're right - H/S might be stretches (though perhaps not impossible), and Booth, Wharton, Tuck would be good targets. Darden should be a good safety, but it might be wise to add one or two more as the GPA could matter more than we'd like.
