“softball is important in my life because i played ever since i was in Rag ball and t-ball “. “ sports do not build character they reveal it “. Once i was a little girl my sister played softball and i thought what the heck i should try it. Once I tried out softball after my first game I was hooked and i had to play until my softball career was over and started playing travel ball and play in college. “ ever since my sister played softball i wanted to because i wanted to be her and be as good as her and i did become just like her “.
After about a year my pitching dreams came true and pitched a couple of innings in a game. After that happened I realized that I didn’t want to just play third base and pitcher in order to play more in games. My coach had asked me if I wanted to learn how to be a catcher because my team only had one and she wasn’t going to be able to play next year due to her age. I agreed to try it and I instantly liked it because I felt in charge and in control of the ball. I finished playing summer softball as the main catcher for every
One day, whilst playing, she is seen by Juliette Paxton (Jules) who plays in a girls football team (Hounslow Harriers) and asks Jess to try out for the team. Even though Joe is sceptical about a new player joining, he soon finds that Jess’ skills on the football field are amazing.
For many many years I was always seen as the player the team called on to pull the team out of a rut. To make things a bit more complicated my high school coach had been my coach my entire softball career. He knew how I thought, how i played, and really molded me into the player I am today. I soon graduated from my little league summer softball to the competitive nature of highschool ball. As a freshman I knew I was going to be overlooked.
Playing with her for 3 years was one of the best experiences for me because I was challenged by her hard work ethic every day in practice and got to guard her every single day. Being on the court with her for every practice made a huge impact on my game because she was such a phenomenal player to play against/with. I do not have a specific story with her, but just creating a relationship with her inside and outside of basketball helped me get to know an amazing person on a greater level.
My sister was the last one if she scores we win. She ran to home plate the ball was thrown at her she jumped over it and landed on the plate. The crowd went wild. We have won the kickball tournament. We all were so excited and happy that we won the points was 20-18 it was a very close game.
All around her were cheerleaders, in short, skimpy skirts, Music playing so loud that it made her ears hurt, Bleached-blondes in ponytails, bows high in their hair, And people so fake that you couldn’t help but stare. Her daughter was one of them, spray-tanned and toned, A natural cheerleader, down to the bones, And that in itself is not a bad thing, It’s the fact that Donna wanted herself to be queen. She followed the other moms wherever they went, And imitated the cheerleaders at all their big events, It was obvious that Donna was living with her daughter, Even if it meant that she had to slaughter. She was all white teeth and revenge-colored lips, Blond hair, fake smiles, and swaggering hips, A shirt that read “Cheer Mom” in glittery stones, That Donna had bedazzled all on her own. She cheered with the other moms, but
Some people assume that I have been dancing here my whole life because of my connection to the girls and my improvement over the years, but truthfully I started dancing at Spotlight when I was in fifth grade. A good friend of mine from school, Alexa, had always talked to me about how much she loved this studio and how great the people were there. I had danced when I was younger but left the sport to plays soccer for several years. Dance was always within me, and it finally came to the point that I knew I wanted to continue to do what I previously had loved. I decided to go to the fall open house and check out the dance studio.
It’s difficult to pinpoint a specific moment in one’s life in which your life is transformed. We often realize that this moment is so signingagent when looking back on personal experiences and don’t realize it at the time. For me, this moment occurred when I realized that I had taken what I love most for granted. It all started back in 2004 when my family suggested that I get into a sport at a young age. My parents are huge baseball fans, so they decided to sign me up for a little league tee ball program in hopes that I would one day play softball in highschool or college.

From a young age I watched the cheerleaders at football games in incredible admiration. All of the girls- in their sleek uniforms with pompoms in colors representing their school- captured my attention. I longed to be in their shoes one day, and I looked up to them. The cheerleaders claimed the spot role model to me for the majority of my childhood. I never realized that years into the future I would fill their shoes, and carry the responsibility of being the person little girls looked up to.
The camp began with Coach Godwin saying "Everybody stretch." All the girls who came to the camp were in grades K-6. We met all the girls and we split into groups. Each younger girl was paired with an older girl. The young girls were very anxious and they were eager to learn.

The Pressure was high for the girls in the battle against Refugio. The team was up by 2, “It was a tough game,” Jurnee Peikert (9) said, “They definitely put up a fight”.

No matter if they were on the field or in the dugout, the girls continued to support their teammates. “We cheered a lot to whoever was batting and pumped each other up when moving towards the outfield,” Delilah Brown (9) explained.
