There was never a moment when energy seemed to escape Nicole, and it definitely seemed to rub off on her teammates. When speaking after the game, she explained “We all know that if one us gets flat, then the rest of us will get flat, and that’s how you lose games. We want to win.” With an attitude like that, it’s no surprise that her presence on the floor carries such a heavy impact. Freshman Erica Costa would end up scoring the final point of the game, while showing some real resilience after seeming a bit frustrated with her play early on.
Borah and Boise had reached the pinnacle of high school basketball, but their seasons, contrary to a movie-like moment, now ended in a very dreary, anticlimactic fashion. The orange glowing lights on the display hanging in the center of the gym indicated the meager final score: seventeen to seven (Lycklama). After a full thirty-two minutes of play, the two teams from this factual recount managed only twenty-four combined points (Lycklama). This extreme instance in history reveals a prominent issue regarding the rules of Idaho high school basketball. The lack of a shot clock in high school causes problems that would otherwise be solved
Sports not only create a culture, they also affect culture. With every rise of a culture, new standards are established by individuals within the cultures boundaries. Participants involved with cultural decisions are affected by these established standards. Increasing those who are allowed to participate in sport competitions increase the poll of people who actively participate in the government. Champions make their mark upon the history of their culture and increase their spectators involvement in society.
This second way to trigger attendance is more realistic for USF currently, because the overall wins and success will take time. Yet if this connection is achieved, we believe student attendance will rise. However, once students come to games they have to give them a reason to stay. As a men’s soccer player said “Make games more of an event.” USF Athletics must heighten the spirit at USF games so regardless of the result, students enjoy the experience and want to return.
In today’s day and age, many, if not most, people enjoy sports either by playing, coaching or spectating. At a certain point in time, not everyone was able to do these things. During the Civil Rights Movement, sports were turned upside down and sports became accessible to a wider range of people. Many important athletes such as Jackie Robinson came out of the era and opened the public’s eye. Several became activists or coaches and changed sports in a way that hadn’t been done before.
Reinhardt University Elite Athletes Effect on Society It is without a doubt that kids and young athletes look up to collegiate and professional athletes as role models and icons. As many people know, kids notice little things as well as big things and sometimes mimic their role models every behavior. Elite athletes definitely have something that should be praised, but this praise should be confined to athletic ability alone. The fame and glory gives these athletes a platform to change the world and affect the future of young generations.
The study had more men than women in it, it consisted of “eight men and 2 women” (Hetlzer, Hunt, Stickley & Kimura, 2011). Which this is how it relates to my thesis statement because it seems there is a pattern where women are treated less than the men in this professional sport. These participants skateboarded while being on a treadmill and showed endurance. The thing is, that even though women are being treated not as equal in this sport, the discrimination is making them aspire to work harder. These women crave to change history and they are making it
Nothing is more beautiful than helping others. The word help clearly states to give or provide what is necessary, to accomplish a task or satisfy a need; contribute strength or means to; render assistance to; cooperate effectively with; aid; assist. When I’m older and more capable I would love to be able to give my knowledge on the sport I love to people around the world who share the same interest as me. I 've always wanted to do this because growing up cheering was very difficult especially with three other sisters who all cheered. Cheerleading is a very expensive sport, my all-star cheer program varied from 5,000-7,000 dollars per year, per athlete.
Women have been part of the Olympics for 116 years, yet somehow with more than a century of experience under their belts they are still perceived as the weaker gender. Women have taken big strides in sports and athletics in the past century, becoming champions, competitors and icons. The track, field, pool or court is their place of work and with strong participation and ongoing success they are still treated as second class citizens in the world of sport. Why is gender still a defining factor in sporting opportunities, funding, television and media coverage, pay rates and recognition around the world?
To become a professional; to become the next Shaq, Kobe, or Curry; these are dreams set by every player when they start a sport, and only a few ever make it. As Ashley Graham once said, “College basketball was one of the hardest, most rewarding experiences of my life. Every single day on the court was a mental and physical challenge.” College Basketball has the better games because it is the player’s only chance of going all the way to the NBA or WNBA, and due to the slim chances of making a starting lineup in the pros, players give everything they’ve got into the sport.

Some teenage athletes may consider having your mom cheering for you in the stands is embarrassing, but what if your mom was on the court as your coach? This is actually the situation for 16 year-old Sydney and 14 year-old Savannah Vach and their mother, and coach, Kim Vach. Kim Vach has been coaching for 28 years, her coaching career started at West Ridge Middle School. Currently, Vach is coaching the girls volleyball at Winter Springs High School, last season the team earned the title of number one team in Florida. They were also ranked 7th in the country.
The crazy thing was I was the worst free throw shooter ever, shooting 51.1%. On that night overall I shot 87.5%. I told the reporters after the game, “I really think I shot too often In the game particularly in the fourth quarter, when everyone was egging me to 100 points.” But my teammates wanted me to score 100 points, so they started passing me the ball even when they were wide open. My team only scored 69 points all together in the game.
Should College Athletes Receive Compensation for Performing? Most people prefer college sports over professional sports simply because the athletes are more driven and have more passion for the game they love. The discussion of whether college athletes should be paid or not, has been ongoing for years now. Some believe compensating amateur athletes would take the enjoyment out of college sports, while others argue that these athletes deserve a paycheck for their tremendous amount of work and efforts on the field and courts. College athletes should not receive compensation to perform because they are students before athletes.
