I came to the game and helped the players with the batting order, and warmups. I had to show the team how to do the warm-up. So I was the one who would roll the ground balls to them. I also coached third base and participated in the coach pitch at times. This fun experience recently was moments I will never forget.
This is how sports hough high school have influenced me; they have helped me grow and learn humility and purpose. When I was in eighth grade i was the star of my recreational soccer league, so going into highschool I was not only expecting great things, but I was expected by others to do great things. My coaches, my teammates, and my friends all knew me as a great player which put a lot of pressure on me walking into high school tryouts. I did not know anyone there but I quickly saw that the level of skill I was competing with was something that I had never experienced before. With that I went from being the best player in the league to not making the team my freshman year.
My father had always motivated me to become better in sports and school, he also prepared me for college by training me. At the end of my softball team’s season, the coach of a travel team noticed my pitching skills and wanted me to join their team for a weekend tournament
Now I’m doing something completely different from all three of the previous years. I’m preparing myself to raise a child. High school changed everything in my life. I one was good at math, I never had so many teachers leave at one time, my taste in friends was proven to be a typical high school experience, and my free time changed. After Senior year I’m not looking forward to adult for the rest of my
I surprised myself by getting to golf varsity as the fourth golfer out of six. I accomplished this by putting in many long hours to become the best golfer I could be. I even placed first out of all the other girls at a meet. I will never forget that magical moment. The sound of my teammates and coach cheering as they heard my name being called out.
I played a little softball when I was younger with my brothers. You can say I looked up to them, I pretty much had too. I’m the youngest and the only girl in the family. We started playing softball with are cousin’s at the park. They tried to teach me how to catch and throw the ball.
It’s difficult to pinpoint a specific moment in one’s life in which your life is transformed. We often realize that this moment is so signingagent when looking back on personal experiences and don’t realize it at the time. For me, this moment occurred when I realized that I had taken what I love most for granted. It all started back in 2004 when my family suggested that I get into a sport at a young age. My parents are huge baseball fans, so they decided to sign me up for a little league tee ball program in hopes that I would one day play softball in highschool or college.
I lost some friends due to that one simple decision, but little did I know I would make so many more wonderful friends from the game of volleyball. I remember the first time I stepped into a gym to play volleyball, everyone was so nice to me. I had some of my best friends on the team already, but there were people who I hardly even knew who treated me like we had been friends since childhood. Between my three years of high school volleyball and my two years of club volleyball, I have met so many people that will have a special place in my heart for my whole life. Every single volleyball coach I had has had a positive influence on my life.
