However, sometimes things happen and people have got to just keep pushing through it. My third year of softball my team was very proficient, strong, and confident. When it came time to go to our first tournament, we were unquestionably excited. We knew we were going to do excellent because our team was undefeated, and with our confidence, we could do anything we wanted.
After leaving the reservation Rowdy hated Junior on and off the basketball court. When Rearden had a game against Wellpinit, the reservation high school, Rowdy didn't take it easy on Junior.

"I immediately stole a pass and drove for a lay up.
Basketball players put their bodies risk every time they play. College Athletes pushing their bodies to get the play and “There have been instances of players becoming paralyzed by hits or tackles on football fields or other injuries that have ended player’s careers before they even get started.” (Patterson 2) They get hurt really bad from the hand to a concussion that it can make them out a season and some out for the rest of the life.
That’s when it all went wrong. I fouled about three or four balls because I wasn’t turning quick enough and one of my teammates popped of a smart comment, “ That’s like 15.” I just stood there because that person was one of my very close friends and it hurt me that she would say that. All my
One day, I was on the soccer field, playing the game I love and I just about scored a goal but the goalie stopped the ball. Then, the goalie proceeded to punt the ball and I started to run backwards and did not see the ball coming towards me. Also, there was a girl running next to me and when I went to turn around, the ball came crashing down on my head and so did the girls elbow and also the ground. Needless to say, I had a full blown concussion, but I continued to play the rest of the game because I didn’t think there was anything wrong with me. Later that day, I started to feel nauseas and along came the terrible headaches.
He made contact as I was planting my right leg, and my knee twisted and i heard the loudest “POP” of my life. In an instant the worst pain of my life shot through my my body starting at my knee and I collapsed. I was helped off the field with the help of the Okemos lacrosse team; Mitchell Ringer, the JV coach, rushed over to see how I was, along with the trainer present. The trainer took a look at my knee and said the worst possible
They replied with “Don’t worry about it Cassidy! Next one is yours!” I had asked my coach for the third ball and as it was coming to me I bent to scoop it you and I tripped over my own shoes. I felt so embarrassed and humiliated, I didn’t think the coach would put me in the game due to my mistakes at practice. But when the game started he announced our positions and he still had
Nevertheless, a broken leg, a neck brace, and an IV did not impede me from coming face to face with my brother. They had thought that I wouldn’t be capable to handle the injuries, when in reality they hadn’t even taken the time and initiative to acknowledge the fact that I was never queasy with blood, or broken bones. I’ve always wanted to pursue a career in the medical field not because of validation or proving my parents wrong. Moreover because I’ve always wanted to help others and pursue this
During the basketball tryouts, I worked hard and tried my best, but there were many girls that were better than me. I didn’t make the team and even though I knew I wouldn’t make the team, I still got upset about it. When the coach told me that I didn’t make the team, he told me to keep basketball a part of my life and that I had a positive attitude. To keep basketball a part of my life, I went to some of the games during the season and to this day I still make time to go to the modified games.

The Patriots would get a few points before the Tigers would retaliate. After a long, tedious 3 sets, the Tigers were ahead 2-1. The fourth had just begun when the other team noticed a flaw in the Tiger’s positioning, and sent the ball speeding toward an open part of the court. Haley, the defensive specialist, saw the position of the opposing hitter’s arm and started running to the far right side of the court, knowing that the ball would land on the line and they would lose the first point if she did not move rapidly. She dove at the last second to reach where the ball would land, sacrificing her body to get the point, the ball then hit her hand and went spinning, back up to the center of the court, leaving a stinging sensation on Haley’s hand.
so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt. Swear dripping down my face i knew thus is where I can make or break the game. Right here right now. The crowd went silent.
It stated that a free hit within the 25-yard area of the goal must travel at least five yards. Therefore the ball must be touched, deflected, or passed to another player before entering the shooting circle. This rule created a lot of confusion for current players, as the rule previously stated that the ball could be hit directly into the circle. So for free hits inside the 25-yard line, set plays should be prepared so that every player has a certain role.
Then, against Highland Park, we were going to stop David Sachs and Luke Norcia and make the rest of their team beat us. They did not. Then, with all the confidence in the world going into our first conference home game, we played Niles North, and they took it to us. Unlike New Trier, Niles North was fast and wanted to run up and down, so we wanted to slow it down because they could not guard us in our half court offense. We were going to run Platteville as our primary offense.
I have found my spot on the court and I do not plan on giving it back. The thrill that I got made me realize why I love the game in the first place. I did not want to go back to being the kid that played under Alex Lewis. And I surely did not want to sit that bench
