When I walked into the pool area on my first day of high school swimming practice in seventh grade, I made two goals for myself to accomplish during my high school swimming career: break the Sartell school record of 55.88 seconds in the 100 yard backstroke and win the MSHSL Class A State Championship in that event as well. For six years, I trained everyday with these goals in the back of my mind. After numerous trips to the State meet, I had yet to achieve what I had set out to do. When I qualified for the State meet my senior year of high school, it was my last opportunity to turn my goals into a reality. My senior year State meet was different than previous years.
They release a portion of their childhood, but for what, a new beginning, to focus on something else, or because they are lazy? For me, I did not realize my junior year regional track meet would be my last jump I would ever make, until the first semester of my senior year. The spring of my senior year was the season I was supposed to succeed, obtain the school
For the last two years swimming has taken up most of my time. That time was spent getting faster, conversing with teammates, and helping the younger girls get better. After practice one day my coach informed me that I would not be making the sections team because of my time. Being the first senior in five years not to make it, I felt like a failure. For the next few days of practice I checked out mentally.
title in the 200 and 400-yard individual medleys, while going on to win gold in the 200-meter individual medley at the Pan Pacific Championships. Less than a year later, however, she stumbled under pressure at the 2007 Long-Course Championships, making the finals in only one
This meant that school was starting and tryouts were soon. When tryouts came around, I found out that only one player from the previous year had graduated; therefore, only one spot was available. I also found out that the tryouts would be two days, playing nine holes each day at the course I had been practicing at all summer. Then I realized, with only one spot available, either I would make the team I had been working so hard to make, or Cooper would make the team. The first day of tryouts started and I was paired up with Cooper and a freshman, all competing for one spot.
If there is one thing swimming has taught me, it would be that there is always someone who is faster than you. This is when I go back to the pool and train to better myself, to grow as a swimmer. I've been swimming since I was seven years old and have spent countless hours in the pool. So, I would be comfortable saying that I have mastered swimming. However, no matter how long I spend training, there is always something
All the six games, at least scoring one basket, we got to the finals. Fourth quarter of the final game came. Our team was losing by two and there were around fourteen seconds remaining. I don’t know what the coach thought of but he decided to put me in when he had so many other options. The coach told me to stay in the three point line in order to shoot if I can.
Studio, the film company who produced Free Willy, decided to make an attempt to find Keiko a better home (Keiko). “That was essential because the pool for the now 21-foot-long orca was only 22 feet deep, 65 feet wide and 114 feet long and the water temperature was often excessive.” Quoted Wikipedia. With help of donations, Keiko was able to be moved to a concrete tank in Oregon that held 2 million gallons of seawater. This was only temporary, though. By June 1997, his weight had increased significantly.
Just like every other day in the summer of going into my freshman year of high school, I was the one of the first on the court ready to play and the last to work on what I hadn’t done great on that day. Usually Abe, my friend and I guess basketball mentor at the time,
Introduction Swimming is a sport widely practices all over the world. It can be done as a competitive sport, for general exercise or as a fun activity to relax. Swimming was not widely practiced until the early 19th century, when the National Swimming Society of Great Britain began to hold competitions. Most early swimmers used the breaststroke, or a form of it. (Olympic Movent.2013.)
Bill was not a characteristic star, he needed to work hard to win his position on the beginning line up on the varsity his senior year. Bill was cut from his middle school group and did not make it onto the varsity group until his lesser year. The main school that offered him a grant was the University of San Francisco. While going to USF, Bill turned into a greatly improved player by rehearsing without stopping for even a minute. He at last advanced onto the varsity group his sophomore year, and amid his lesser and senior years he helped USF win two NCAA title titles.Amid his time playing university b-ball, Bill truly changed how b-ball was played.
My full name is Angel Jose Garcia, I am 16 years old and I am attending Grace M. Davis high school; I started off freshman year as a chubby kid with no motivation, but as I got a little bit older I have come to change for the better; I am very motivated to succeed and express myself. I enjoy running on my own and in cross country, as well as Teens Run Modesto. I do swimming as a school sport when it comes around, this was my second year doing it and I was team captain. I ran the Modesto Marathon for the first time on March 19, 2017 and got a time of 5 hours and 45 minutes, I know I will get a much better time next year. Apart from running and swimming, I like to participate in school theatre and hanging out with my friends during lunch.

At the beginning of they I was already his favorite. I was a wrestling manager again this year and he asked me to be a track manager so I helped him out with a lot of things. Gronewold has been kinda mean toward the end of the year which is my grades fault. I’m really going to miss mr Gronewold next year because he won’t be at the middle school next year. Mr Belken I can still remember the first time i met Mr belken my brother had orientation for fourth grade and I was going to be in kindergarten, I remember he had sharks all over his room and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
After that season I was more motivated than I have ever been. I was determined to go all out for my first varsity season. I convinced my dad to sign me up for a gym membership. At first, I wasn’t taking it that seriously, I would go around 3 times a week. But later on I got myself a partner to train with me and we pushed each other to our limits.
