Can I still get into a top tier college with this schedule?

My dream since the fourth grade has been to attend Duke University. The community within the campus is truly amazing, and I love all the resources they have available for students. Going into high school I let the pressure of my peers and the fear of the unknown dictate the classes I took, and now my heart is filled with regret because I fear I risk losing my dream. Even though I only took 2 honors classes freshman year do you think I could achieve my goal? this is my planned schedule and I am open to feedback, but it would also be appreciated if you could tell me if you think I even stand a chance with this schedule.
