Even though I didn’t play varsity, I still super supportive and excited we made it that far. They fought to the very last point and they were very upset that they lost. This year we lost those 6 seniors that played and they were very good. Even though we lost those seniors, we still have very talented upper classmen. One of my teammates said, “Talent never graduates.” I can tell she wants to win as bad as I
Even though that they've tried their best to cheer for them, the Los Angeles Dodgers were beaten by the visitors, 10-2. Overall, it was a great game for both of these teams. What's really important for the celebrity couple and their daughter is that they're enjoying the game, win or lose. After the game, both of the teams are showing some sportsmanship to them. It's indeed a clean game for both Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
I first played Tee Ball, like I said before, then moved up levels as my age got older. It starts at 6u-18u then after high school there options of division one, which I one day hope to play! At first I was not very good at softball. I could barley throw or hit very far and most definitely could not pitch. The first time I ever pitched was 8u and I was the biggest, tallest, and one of the most strongest players so my
The car ride home after the practice was horrible, I was a mess. I told my mom, “ I’m horrible at this game, I get so close everytime and I just can’t hit a ball over the fence.” She replied with the, Field of Dreams, quote “Build it and they will come.” What she was meaning by that was keep working and doing what I’m doing right now and I’ll
During the conditioning I would get migraines when I would practice, I thought nothing of it at the time so I would just go home and sleep it off. During one of my tournaments I was playing a game for most of the first half, once half time started I went to the bench and I plopped down on the seat. All of a sudden I became really dizzy and could not see very well. My coach noticed and I started to cry because of the pain I was experiencing. The pain was like nothing else I had ever experienced.
I told him it was terrible, I was the only one of my friends that didn’t get a helmet. He asked if I had worked as hard as I could during the preseason, and I couldn’t come up with an answer. I went to my room and cried that day. I felt like the world was ending because I was worse at my favorite thing in the world than my friends were. Once I settled down, I told myself I wasn’t going to be discouraged anymore.
I was taken to the emergency room and I didn't leave until 5 o'clock the next morning. My hopes of making varsity as a sophomore were crushed that day. My symptoms were fairly severe, I had trouble walking, and reading of any kind gave me massive headaches. I was very sad that all of my hard work was amounted to nothing because of one stupid injury. Recovery was tough.
My art work was in numerous art showings. I also entered many art contest but was placed 2nd in two. I continued on with the art program until my senior year in high school. Though I was a good student academic wise my ACT scores did not prove it. I made an 18 overall, and I began to think college wasn 't for me.
That fall I joined the cross country team and lettered varsity. Later in the spring I joined my high school’s musical, and a year later I got the lead role. These were two things I ended up loving throughout my high school career that I never would’ve had the courage to try if I had stayed in my comfort zone of playing softball. I knew I had given up a major part of who I was, but what I didn’t know was all the other new experiences and people waiting behind that door. The injury itself was a brutal ending to a big part of what I thought made me who I was.
I feel one of my most challenging experiences was when I joined the varsity girls basketball team for my school. My love for basketball, my self-reflection, and my health were all challenged during that first year on the team. I had been playing basketball for my entire life and had grown to love it. I was probably not the best player on the team, but I always put 110% into each and every game. I was MVP and a captain on my eight-grade team, but once I joined the varsity team I fell to the bottom of the ladder.
