Since sophomore year, I barely missed the state track meet and the Free State record by a couple of inches. After my last track meet in my junior year, I was determined to finally accomplish the 35’11 triple jump that I aspired for years. I became committed to the sport, training every morning and evening to perfect a jump that a Free State student has not accomplished. Little by little, I grew out of the goal, realizing that there are more important objective in life to worry about and to
I did really good on it I was one of the fifteen people advancing to the next round. The next event was the texas barrels after that it was the arena race then the last event was the cloverleave. On all of the three barrel races I did just bad enough to not be able to go to the next round. About three hours after the first wave was the second round.
I can still remember my first practice that summer, I was beyond nervous because I did not know anyone. The girls on the team were so welcoming as I ran my first three miles on Roaring Run Trail. After that day, I knew cross country was the sport for me, but I of course did not admit that to my dad right away. Now thousands of miles later, I have finished my fourth season of cross country and my fourth season of track is just beginning.
I was twelve when my team won the championship. “ Championships bring joy and happiness ,but takes a lot of work to get there. It was a warm and sunny day as I prepared to run the drills before the game. As my team and I were doing the drills such as sprinting,shooting, and passing I was already thinking about the game ,but realized I had to stay focused on the drills for now.
Every second between the end of school and the start of rehearsal was spent conversing with friends, eating snacks, and relaxing because the next two hours would be spent marching back and forth within the same fifteen feet. However, I had taken up a different pre-rehearsal ritual, where I was preparing to march into rehearsal completely refreshed and ready for new instruction. The countless hours in the heat and the taste of dirt might have aggravated the everyday member, but in my head, the time on the field and the scent of freshly cut grass was all I had. I loved it. Unlike the others, I never begged for a water break, not even in the sweltering heat of early August.
I had never ran hurdles before, so I was quite excited. The first time trying it, I ran and jumped. Everything went well; I was quite confident about it. For the second round, I ran and jumped just like the first time, but it didn't turn out like what I had expected. I hit the hurdle and fell down badly.
My scores at practice were on the rise, so I was excited to shoot at the tournament at the end of the week. It was the night before the tournament and I was shooting really good compared to what I had been shooting. Moe was at practice that same night to see how I was doing with the new techniques. He said that I should be ready for for the tournament.
A year ago, I signed a contract with Hillsborough marching band but I never knew what I was signing up for. The place I feel at ease is marching band practice. This is because the people there are nice. I even won an award for being the most improved rookie. Although it is tiresome I have to constantly spend around 3 hours practicing marching and playing my music every Mondays and Tuesday during summer and fall, the adrenaline rush made me more focused and on task.
Personal Narrative My eighth grade year has barely started. I have never tried doing sports in school, so i figured i tried something new. So i joined flag football just to see how it is, I was nervous at first on how it was going to turn out, but after a while of practicing I was very comfortable with going everyday after school to practice. One day, the P.E. teacher announced, “Alright guys you’re all soon be going to High School, which means it will soon be time to apply for sports in High School.”
I am the top runner right now on the varsity team. I hope I can get a little faster before the end of the year. We have a small team this year, only have 10 girls. I am planning to run track in the spring, but I hope I can do more events than just the 1 mile and the 4x400m relay. I am surprised how fast middle school has gone by.
After my first season of varsity was over I felt even more motivated to get better. I started lifting weights almost every day, even if it meant I had to go to the gym at midnight and still go to school the next morning. The summer of my senior year all I did was either work or work out, I barely spent any time with my friends. But all that work paid off for me because as my senior season approached, I found myself starting on both sides of the ball and on special
In my point of view the hardest only hardest track meet I have ran in is the North Half because there is a lot more faster people and more heats to run in. You must qualify in the North Half meet to make it to state. Waking up early in the morning and traveling to Jackson for one day for the best track meet you will ever be at. At this track meet you have to place from first to third in order to get a medal. At the State Track meet it is fun because you get to meet new people and you can buy a t-shirt with everyone’s name on it that made it to state.
It was June 2nd of 2013, and like most days of that time of year I was off to an afternoon soccer game. I has only recently returned to playing sports after being out for three months because of a concussion, and I was so happy to be back doing what I loved. My tea, was doing pretty well that year, and we were expecting an easy win from the game that day. I arrived at the game about a half hour early as usual, and my team and I began stretching.
This years cross country went off pretty well if you ask Harrisburg cross country runner Alexander Auch, If you ask him he will tell you that his favorite part of the season was watching his teammates improve and grow as a better runner and placing top 10 in just about every race and getting first in Brookings with a time of 16:40.66 and getting second as a team. Alex isn 't sure yet what he will do running wise after High School but he says if he get the opportunity to run in college he will take it and run with it. He will also say that he is exited for next year and looking forward to it he was been running all winter inside and out and don 't be surprised when you see him in the summer out there because the Harrisburg team has a summer
The whistle indicating the beginning of the game blew. For the first 15 minutes, it was a normal game and we were in total control. We were unlucky to not have got 2 or 3 goals by then. Soon enough, we finally got our first goal around 25 minutes in. As I jogged back to position myself to begin play again, I noticed a slow, limping figure
