The ultimate team at my school has been a generally successful program, participating in the Division I High School State Championships every year and performing extremely well. However, as an underclassman, I played on the junior varsity team, and captained it my sophomore year. As a captain, I knew my team’s potential and led them to the number two seed in the annual Division II cities tournament. However, despite having a talented roster, crucial losses put us in fifth place. I went home that day feeling like I had let down the entire program.
I wanted to makes sure I won and I knew it would have been hard to win competing in a category with so many people. At states, the Sports & Entertainment marketing category had over two hundred people in it and the Principles of Hospitality & Tourism category has eighty-eight people in it. At states I won three medals: NC DECA Certification award for passing the written exam, NC DECA Series Event Finalist Winner, and NC DECA State Finalist. I was six in my category and I almost made it to nationals but I had to be in the top five to go. I was so happy that I had actually accomplished something on my own.
Some would wonder if winning conference three out of four years would be my favorite memory or if it would be scoring over one-thousand points, but truly my high school career was so much more than that.

High school basketball was where I spent all of my time and built relationships with people who, if it were not for basketball, I may never have

The Women’s Volleyball defeated Pine Manor in their final game of yesterday’s tournament, improving their record on the season to 6-5. It was a huge day for the Colonels, who were below .500 when the games began this morning. After scuffling to start the season, it seems as if this team may have finally hit their stride after stringing some wins together.

Misty had received many recruiting letters about three hundred colleges including Stanford, Hawaii, Arizona, University of the Pacific and California State University - Long Beach (Misty 92).
