The road to glory started in Pierre, South Dakota. Where Berent, Cael, Trevor, Xavier, and I drove up to play for the state cup. The rest of the team was with their parents but we decided to carpool to save money. We were all joking around until we figured out that we were going to play the older tempo team, Tempo Blaze. At first, we thought that this would be a sweep, that we would win the whole tournament without worrying, but know we have to play the team that has never lost this year and we have never beaten for as
We lost pretty bad to them, but I thought we did extremely well against a Varsity team. This weekend really stuck out to me because we had such difficult teams we had to play against while we were down two vital players. We worked well as a team and definitely out worked every team we played
We went into the playoffs ranked 4th in AA so we hosted 13th seeded Weir. Everyone expected us to win and host 5th seed Fairmont Senior. At first, it seemed like that would happen without a doubt as we headed into halftime, but we blew the lead and lost 29-27. I sat and cried in that locker room crying for 45 minutes telling myself that it would not happen again next year. Well, here we are.
And I thought to myself “oh my god” because at the time, I was like 4 foot 7, and they were like 5 foot 2. I ran as fast as I could, to the end zone and I scored, and everyone went bananas, my whole team came dashing over to me, giving me high fives and shoulder bumps. But I just stood there silently, smiled, and thought to myself “Thanks
They tried to make us go to right side on a counter play but we read there play and we stopped them from getting the first. The game was tight until they got down on the 20 yard line and they got stopped by us. Right when they got down it started raining and we had to play in that but the ball was slippery for the quarterback and he keep on stumbling with the ball and he kept on fumbling but we tried to still get the ball back and they still got it back. They threw the ball right over us and there wide receiver caught the ball Still and we tried to play defense and we got beat every time. The way we got beat on the long passes was because they had
After playing a tough semifinal they were able to qualify against an amazing team, who consisted of a player almost as talented as CJ and he came in 6’10”. The game had been fast paced. The crowd was in awe as they witnesses two of the best players in the state play an astounding game of basketball. They maintained a tied game until the last few minutes where the game would depend on whoever held position of the ball at the end, it was that close. Only eight seconds before the timer went out the opposing team managed to put in a three- point shot.
"I immediately stole a pass and drove for a lay up. Rowdy was right behind me. I jumped into the air, heard the curses of two-hundred Spokanes, and then saw only a bright light as Rowdy smashed his elbow into my head and knocked me unconscious." Left with a minor concussion Junior was unable to finish the game and Rearden lost to
I had been competing in water polo all year long and we were in the middle of summer training. We were playing Don Lugo when I took a shot to the head in the middle of second-quarter. I felt awful. I didn't know at the time, but that was when I received my first concussion. I played the rest of the game slow and disoriented.
My dad popped in and said, ”that was a pretty hard hit of your arms like that.” I started to laugh. After the game ended I went out on the field and high-fived the other team’s hands. My team won 25 to 1, we were so excited we jumped on each other and screamed. My whole team and I all packed up and went to the pitching mound. My coach asked, ”Reagan, are you alright?” I told her, ’’Yes, it just made me stronger.” Everybody laughed along with me.
These terrible facts knocked me in the head at one of our last games. The game wasn’t challenging to score, but it was a big game. We were facing our rivals, Centerton, and attempting to hold them to zero. The entire world planned on coming. Everyone was gonna be there, seeing me mess up.
He started to dribble and took about 3 dribbles then i just had to reach. I thought i was gonna get a foul but i ripped it from him and took back to the other side and dunked it. By this time everyone was on their feet. Everyone on the bench was jumping exuberantly and excited. They ended up calling a timeout to chill
The Bears got themselves out of trouble and Burgess made his old team mates pay, charging through the line to dash 60 metres for his hat trick. Levido added the extras and it was 20 points to 2 at half time. Wyong were literally running up hill the second half, three converted tries behind the Bears and Morrie Breen Oval slopes from north to south made the job hard. The Roos had the majority of the ball early in the second half but could not convert into points. It was a different story for North’s though, scoring their fifth try thanks to Latrell Robinson backing up Sitveni Moceidreke to score right in front.
Just 2 minutes left the sun half way set, the crowd cheering and most of all the scouts not blinking paying attention to every detail, play and decision each one of us makes, I see the ball come off the rim and the other team grab the rebound and their other play already across the court just past half court I knew what I had to do. With no thought or anything I break out running across the court chasing their player knowing he was going for a fast break lay-up I knew I could catch there was no doubt about it but the question was would I block the ball or not I can feel the eyes staring at us curiously wonder what will happen. Just like I predicted I see his hand turn upside down getting ready to lay it up I take 2 more steps and leap as hard as I can towards the ball staring at the ball and nothing else all I cared about was saving my team from those 2 points and looking good on the court and on that stats sheets, that was a decision I would later pay for. I did what I had practice and done hundreds of times before at the park I swat my hand towards the ball as hard as I can, I hear when my hand hits it and it bounces off the backboard not thinking about my landing instead of preparing for the fall I prepare myself to start running back across court but that wouldn’t happen when I landed I felt a pop in my knee’s my
The referee blows his whistle and I start to lead the ball down the court. I glance over and see a split down the middle of the court, exactly what we needed. I dribble the ball the middle of the paint, right as I see the defenders start to cut me off. I make a sharp cut, turn, and pass the ball right to my shooting guard. He takes the ball in his hand and swiftly goes up and makes the three.
The coaches got the teams hype and everyone got set for kickoff I am there (corner and kick returner). The team kicked the ball off and oh no I dropped the open kick off and it costed us 10 yards, it was not a good start for but I shook it off and still believing my goal. The offense went onto the field and the next thing you know it was already fourth and
