My freshman year of high school started strong on the second day of school, finding out that I made junior varsity field hockey. I was so excited that I was one of the six girls to be given the opportunity to play on JV. I had always heard rumors about the head field hockey coach; people said she was unreasonable, mean, cruel, she picked favorites, etc. Personally, I chose not to believe them and form my own relationship with the
Sure, parents are generally more relaxed by the point they have their last kid, but there 's all these expectations based off of what your siblings have done. Sure, I tried lacrosse, I played it for one year and it wasn 't bad. The only problem I had with it was that people would always talk to me like the reason I was
Describe a circumstance, obstacle or conflict in your life and the skills and resources you used to resolve it. Did it change you? If so, how? As cross country approached this year, I was ranked as the number one girl on the Prosper High School cross country team. I was super excited about it because of all of the hard work and countless sacrifices I had put in for nine years, but what I was not expecting was lots and lots of drama.
I’ve always loved any sport and they’ve always been such a big part of my life. My parents have always pushed me to try my best and give it my all every single game. Between softball, basketball, volleyball, and track I was always participating in a sport. There was never really a time in my childhood that I wasn’t playing games or practicing. However, my freshman year I decided that I needed to stick with one sport and focus on becoming my best.
As a proud member of the Mercedes Tiger Band color guard and drill team, a lifetime goal for me would be to join a marching band and/or college dance team. Coming into high school I never thought my passion would be to be performing in front of hundreds of people every Friday Night for four years. It has become my passion and it brings me much joy to perform and have the time of my life on that football field. I have had an amazing four years participating in many extracurricular activities but I have found that my biggest passion is colorguard. I have grown to love the sport.
I carry my lacrosse stick with great pride, my lacrosse stick has shaped me to become the student-athlete I am today. Without my lacrosse stick i’m not sure where I would be today, I definitely would not have the values, experiences, and qualities that I have obtained over the past 6 years through carrying
The next weekend we played Lee, our rivals. During the game everyone shared the ball, making us all happy—including the parents. We upset Lee, claiming our first victory of the season. It was monumental because the team believed in each other and beamed with confidence. We lost twice the rest of the season and won seven games.
First Football Game – 1st Person Point of View When I was seven years old, I begged my parents to let me register for girl’s flag football. I did not have as much experience playing it as the other girls on my team did but during all of our practices, I tried as hard as I could. I played my best in my scrimmages. and then the first game came. That was a day I will never forget.
After our third stop with each taking 2-3 hours we start our journey towards home. Once again changing gears and headed home is the highlight of my day. At this point I 'm tired, cold, and in need of warmth. Each time I hear the signal of the truck I know we are getting close to home. As my owner pulls into the parking lot to fuel the truck, I know home is within 20 minutes.
I started training in July and was ready to make this the best cross country season of my life. I started out the season as the number five varsity runner but and by city league I was the second runner and fourth overall. The team placed first in the city league making us the first varsity girls’ team to win since 1988. We are now on the road to state the qualifying regionals coming up. This whole high school running experience has majorly impacted my life.
Of course, being told such things by one of the most renowned coaches in the country would be enough to make anyone push their limits. After my sophomore cross country and track seasons were nulled by my physical limitations, I developed a sort of excitement that I wish I could feel again. “I can do ANYTHING” I would tell myself as I ran each workout. Sure enough, by the beginning of my junior cross country season, I was quickly catching up with the other girls on my team. 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.
“It felt good to score in today’s game, it was hard fought for sure,” said Thompson. “Everybody played as a team, 15 as one rugby.” The entire team was happy with the outcome at homecoming. “We came out hard and ready to win. We worked on everything that we said we would at practice,” said Winn. “It felt good.
1 I woke up monday morning with the one thought in my mind - Rye Neck. We had gone all the way last year to the section final with them, and after me hitting the pipe in the final minutes to win it, they scored on the counterattack and won the the section. I had never experienced a loss like this one. I was the kid on the team who before the season started, no one really knew if I was good or not. The season I had my freshman year ended up pretty well - nine goals, six assists, and a spot on the all-league team.
They were on the 50 yard line 20 rows up. Our friends had season tickets. They live in Utah so they gave them to us because we live closer to the Big house. We were so excited to go. We got up at 6 am which means we had an hour to get ready 2 hours to get there, 1 hour for lunch, 1 for shopping and getting in.
It is the morning before all of the Frisco Independent School District tennis teams face off to see who will be the best in singles and doubles. The weather is nice and it will quickly rise to the mid-90s. I cannot wait to get to school to see my team mates and play my final match for Wakeland High School Tennis team. I have been preparing for this match for seven years, without realizing the full affects. It all started on the second week of seventh grade, I had joined tennis as my physical education credit because I did not want to do girls athletics or regular physical education.
