Basketball, it's a sport everyone appreciates, especially when you're playing with people you enjoy being around. I enjoy being around Alex, Luke, and Parker. Our team name is AALP Jam, as in the film Space Jam. We’ve been playing together for about 2 years now and this summer was very fun, perhaps even more fun than last summer. We played in a 3v3 in Lewiston last summer, the four of us. We took the W and walked away with medals. This year we likewise walked away with medals, but not the W. There was some very good competition over in Elk Rapids this summer. However, we had no problem with all 13 teams except for 2. The Cadillac team was gigantic, aggressive, and maybe over aggressive. We have some size as well though. Parker is 6’4, Luke is 6’5, Alex is 6’0. Then there's me at a whooping 5’6. Then the game started, we played hard but it came down to the wire. A 14-14 game to 16. It was time to put the clamps on, no points allowed. They passed the ball around the key carelessly, and I took advantage of it. I went out picked off one of the passes and all of a sudden we now had the upper hand in the game that would send us to the championship. I just wanted to get a win and move on. …show more content…
I watched the orange and black lined ball fly through the air. It went through the net. In an instant I had won the game for us. We were all gassed and didn't even want to play the next game. The game before had taken all our energy and our will to play. Although we will have to try. This next team was a stupendous team from Mt. Pleasant. They had been playing together for a long time and we were only together for 2 summers. In conclusion, we were at the disadvantage. The wind picked up and the sun had been beating down on us all day. The game started, it started well, however it quickly, do out of reach. Like 0-5, 2-7, 5-11, and it got worse and worse. By the end, we were just happy we got the

We were down by 1. They had a very selfish player that had almost half of their points. So we figured if we just lock him up when knew we were gonna win. He scored about 5 more points to start the 3nd half so by that time i just started guarding him. I knew he was weak minded and just wanted to shoot over me
It was a inning ending double play. I was starting to feel that we could do this and that we could actually win this game. But we knew it would be difficult without any of our good pitchers being available to pitch. It was the final inning of the game we had our best pitcher on the team out to throw the last inning. We all thought this was going to be an easy win from hear.
but we had a motive we had an inspiration for the win. It was five o’clock and we had an hour till game time, and I was on my way to the field I was listening to music trying to get in my “zone”. I kept thinking about my dad’s words “Make this count, treat this like your last game. You will never forget
A Fun Weekend with Austin This weekend my friend Austin and I attended the Bettendorf vs. Pleasant Valley football game as well as just hanging out with some more friends. Before the game started Austin and I chowed down on some delicious burgers and fries whiled we waited eagerly for the game to start. After the first play of the game, Austin and I thought it was going to be a blow out because the Bettendorf kick returner ran it 80 yards to the Pleasant Valley 15 yard-line.
However, I began to see the game as more than just a win or a loss. Losing gave the team the opportunity to closely look at what we did well, and what we needed to improve on. We were then able to focus more precisely on what we needed to do in order to succeed. I was able to learn that being successful and winning were not necessarily the same thing. We had success in a smaller sense; we worked as a team, played clean games and were noted for our sportsmanship.
I gave it my all and pitched like there was no tomorrow. As we were nearing the end of the game the score was close, but we were ahead by one point. It had just become and even more intense that it already was. Every single person was on the edge of their seat waiting to see who would win it all. My team was up to bat
So if we win we would win the tournament. As we were doing stretches the nerves piling on top of eachother. We all knew this was going to be an intense game. The last game of the tournament was a 6-1 win over Roadrunners. “Hooray!
We learned that there is not and I in team and that as long as we worked together, we could accomplish great things. Although some of us could do something others couldn’t, we could put our talents together, and we could not be stopped. We all judged each other and didn’t give anyone a chance, but when we finally did, we saw that we could beat any team. In the end we all realized what we could do and accomplish as a team, we became unbeatable and now we are close as
Football at the lot It was very sunny out the gang was playing football and darry was the person that protects the quarterback johnny was the punter he was a decent good punter but he needs improvement we could not be on the field he get beat up enuff so for know he is the alright punter.

With about 8 minutes to go into the first period Westhill had a great opportunity to tie the game on a one-timer pass from the corner, but I came in clutch with a beautiful glove save, not to be cocky, it was probably my best save of the year. The game went back and forth for the rest of the first period with no one able to find the back of the net. Westhill had the greater majority of the scoring chances; they were a very strong offensive team. In between periods we went wild, the team dressing rooms were right next to each other. We wanted to make sure that Westhill knew we were ready to keep playing.
Failure for Moorestown girls lacrosse is not an option. This powerhouse lacrosse program had a winning streak of eighty-eight consecutive games. My sophomore year the program experienced their first loss in what seemed like forever. Continuously, the timer on the scoreboard got closer to triple zeros, everyone’s hearts went into their throats anticipating the end. The opposing team was up by one and were stalling the ball.
At 4:00 p.m., the ref was going to start the game and at first, it was 7 vs. 11 for the first three minutes until more players from our team showed up. I could tell by looking at the coach that he was disappointed with the team. It was close to halftime and they were winning 2-0. Throughout the last ten minutes of the half, I was pressuring the other team.
This was going to be tough to do because the other team was really good but, we believed in our coaches that they prepared us for the right for our battle that day. When we were warming up you could hear the fans in the stands cheering us on and the music playing. You could see the sun setting in the distance and the leaves falling off the trees and as the sun went down the stadium lights came on and we all new that it was game time. We went out to kick the ball the crowed went to silence and all you could hear was the refers whistle to start the game and as the ball was kicked the fans went crazy.
So coach threw together a freshman team and I was placed as a starter on both offense and defense. This made me feel a lot better about playing in high school. So to start out the game, the opposing team got the ball. Our defense was pretty good and we held them back and kept them from scoring.
