I was extremely excited to be captain because of my love for the sport and for my amazing team, especially because it was going to be my last year competing. My school has still not won a City Championship, but my team and I wanted to change that this year. We all pushed ourselves to the limit, and we worked harder than ever before. On the day of our City Championship meet, we cheered each other on and we put on our best performance. We were all worried that the team that had been disqualified during my freshman year was going to win.
During the 6 minute match, we had the first day, I was put on my back 15 times. Time flew by soon enough the official matches began, and I hit the jackpot of wrestling in the very first tournament. In that tournament, the Junior Varsity wrestlers were guaranteed two matches plus a third one if we do win one of the two matches. I was confident because I believed I have learned pretty good amount of techniques in the three-week period but I was mistaken. The matches began with my weight class; I was called down first.
Travis Bonner made two additional touchdowns in the fourth quarter. When the score reached 33-15 Jenkins County allowed their Junior Varsity team members to finish the game. Senior players didn’t mind sharing their final moments on the field with their younger teammates. “They needed to experience how the game is played at the high school level and they need all the experience they can get for next year,” Joiner said. There were more points scored in this game than any other game in the 2015 season for Jenkins County.
Transitioning from middle school band to high school band was a major jump because of all the time involved, but it was such a great transition. Since my freshman year I have always done all I can to be my absolute best in this program. I never slacked off on practice unless I had another event I had to attend. Every summer we have band camp that consists of 8 hours a day working our hardest to get the season started. Once school starts the color guard had three hour practices three times a week, last year it was only two, and now we only have practice one day a week because of the effort we all put in at band camp this year.
In fact, my outlook was amazing; there were three elite meets that season, each with a limit of runners on my team that would be taken. Then, tragedy struck the team; three of our fastest girls were injured and out for the season. Now, I wasn’t happy about them being sidelined, but it did finally give me a chance to recover my placement from the beginning of sophomore year. I wanted to help lead the team to state, and with what my coach had previously said, it didn’t appear to be too far out of my reach. However, “too far” should have been followed by an asterisk, as my season soon spiraled out of my
Mikesbikes is a in class simulation that we did in BUS 102. The objective of the game was to get the have your company have the highest shareholder value out of the competing teams in our class. It was possible for the shareholder value to raise greatly or go down and eventually go into bankruptcy. Here today is our team explaining how we were very successful in the game. During the first few weeks of the practice run of the game, everyone in our group was having a very hard time getting used to it.
Coach Smith started talking, and he was talking about how the freshmen team last year went undefeated. I knew we could do it to but everybody had to show up to play. He said that he had talked to our coach last year. Coach Gade said that “we are a good team.” I thought we could have been a lot better. Then he said it.
My dad would coach me on top of what the coach was teaching to make sure I was exceeding my limit. Years went by playing for different teams different coaches, and I began to get pretty well known for my athleticism. I never worked so hard in my life on something then I did on football. I started 1st string ever year at the position I was playing due to how hard I worked. Sophomore year shows up, bout the time colleges start scouting players to join there teams.
I continued striving every day and ultimately the practice paid off and I won an invitational my eight-grade year and winning was the greatest sensation I had ever endured. As the years have gone on, I have worked harder and only become more passionate for the game. I have endured an abundance of success which included advancing to state this past summer and competing there was like a fantasy. Discovering the game of golf sprouted a passion within me and that passion grows more each day. I have learned that I relish the journey of success and admire seeing results.
I have been playing lacrosse since I was three years old. I love the game and have even written papers on the origins of the game as well as great players of the lacrosse. I play defense but was initially a midi, then attack, and played goalie for a few years until I finally found my preferred position. I play for my high school varsity team and this past spring, we won the division pennant for the first time in my school 's history. It was a proud moment and to see the division champion pennant hanging in the gym with all the other sports pennants.
As a senior in high school, I had assumed that I knew everything about the sport I had been around my entire life, cheerleading, but when football season ended that year, things changed. I told my coaches that I needed to focus on school and work, needing to prepare for college the next year. Nevertheless, I offered to help with practices, if they would allow me to do so. I was granted the title of team advisor, and given the ability to attend the competitions free of charge. During practices, I assisted with spotting new stunts and changing rounds, helping critique.
My freshman year was here and it was time to fight for a starting spot. The good thing about playing sports at a small school is you have a much better chance of playing. After the whole preseason work I earned a varsity spot. All season the work I
I tried out for four club teams, and I didn’t earn a spot on any of them, but I believed my skills were improving. By chance, I found one club that was having their tryouts much later than all the others, and when I showed up, I was the only one there. They asked me to play for them, and I agreed, but it was more like private lessons. Every Monday, I would go and practice for a couple of hours with a student coach. Occasionally, I would play scrimmages for other teams, but most importantly, I enjoyed those weekly practices.
