Throughout the summer of 2016, I learned that this mental toughness everyone is talking about really does impact you not only as a golfer, but as a person. It was roughly a week in a half before our golf sectionals. My golf season had been decent for a freshman but I was struggling with inconsistency. I was shooting roughly anywhere from the low to high 80’s. My biggest golf role model, Matt Desper, is the best golfer I know.
We would get on the bus and there would just be an aroma of smells and feelings that is really indescribable. But the shed was our place. My junior year after we lost in the playoffs we all went in there and cried and for the first time it wasn't the happiest place on earth anymore. At that exact moment it was to us the saddest place. But to me I was sad we lost but I still had another year to play so I wasn't that sad.
My senior year I did not try out because of my busy schedule, but i regret not making more time for it. It is my passion and the band advanced to area this year. Another extracurricular activity I enjoy is Winter Guard, which is all color guard members and no band members. I have been in Winter Guard for two years and I will be going on my third year this year. The first year we got sixth place at State and I was captain my junior year as well.
Transcripts When I first started high school, my grades were not that good. I struggled in most of my classes in 9th grade until I realized that I can do so much better. In 9th grade I wanted to play football but because of my grades I could not participate in it. Toward the end of 9th grade I got my grades together and since then I’ve gotten really good grades. In the first semester of 9th grade I had a 1.4 GPA and managed to raise it to a 3.57 GPA and I am really proud of myself for that.
In track I did really good I got everything I wanted I had discus and shot put and I also did a 400 meter and got close to 3 but someone tied and I got 5th. In 5th grade I did a lot better in football I got my QB and I got defenses of line and we got so much sack and we won 0 to41 us. In 5th grade track I did not do so well, but I got 3rd in Feld and then football was coming the worst thing happened had appendicitis . So they let me go out still but I miss about 1 week of school and another one to get checked up on to make shore I can do active
As I walked through Wahlert Catholic, I looked around to familiar faces and thought to myself this is the year I will put myself out there and try new things, and make new friends. Freshman Orientation, I sat in bleachers and thought to myself, What I am going to do with myself this year? To all freshman, sometimes you walk in not knowing what you may do but you will figure it out eventually. I made my decision on Golf. My freshman year, I played the JV team for the first time, before that I never played on a team.
Despite some early struggles, we were able to advance to the semifinals, but lost in a thriller. Even though we lost, it was the best game we played by far; the kids learned to play together as one team. The season was always filled with excitement and anticipation, one play after the
As a parent who is interested in getting your child started in golf, you probably know lots of things about this wonderful sport, including the fact that the famous Tiger Woods has actually started to play golf at the age of 2. This not what your kids must do as well, because most kids do not have the attention span or coordination to play golf that
A time where I succeeded in the face of setbacks is during my senior year of basketball. It started at the end of the season my junior year when we lost five very good players because they graduate. One of those five players that graduated played the same position as me, and always played so I rarely ever played. Once they graduated people told me I was never going to be able to be as good as the kid who graduated before me and replace him. It really made me mad and I told myself that is not true.
And I only messed up once,” I responded to her question. I don't know why I was nervous before the show because I actually enjoyed it a lot. I felt a rush of adrenaline because I was so excited after the first three minutes that I kept wanting to perform. The only bad thing, was that I was too far out during the one song so the formation looked off. But next time I will be sure not to do the same thing because I will learn from the mistake, so I guess it's good that I messed up.
I saw the stats at the end of the game and I had shot 36-63 from the field and was 28 of 32 from the free throw line. The crazy thing was I was the worst free throw shooter ever, shooting 51.1%. On that night overall I shot 87.5%. I told the reporters after the game, “I really think I shot too often In the game particularly in the fourth quarter, when everyone was egging me to 100 points.” But my teammates wanted me to score 100 points, so they started passing me the ball even when they were wide open. My team only scored 69 points all together in the game.
Perfection is unattainable, but every team strives for it. My Junior year, so far, has been a perfect season for color guard. By no means are my teammates and I perfect at our sport, however, we strive for something unattainable: perfection. The amount of work that we put into this sport is much higher than most sports teams put into their games. At the beginning of this season, I was skeptical of having a team with only 5 members, but my worries soon faded away after the first competition.
It took us by shock how much they improved their skills by one game, and before we knew it we lost the third set. It shook us, but we knew we still had a chance. All we needed was another match win, but they slowly crept back on us again. Finally with a tied two match win, we went to the fifth and final match. We put it on the court that game.
When I first started band I was in 7th grade and I had the highest hopes that band would be the best and easiest class I had ever taken but that thought was abandoned the first day of summer band. I had no clue what I was doing and if I didn 't mark my spot right I would get yelled at and get in trouble. When I say that it takes a lot of work we had to basically run across a football field while carrying a 20lb instrument, dodging people, playing a song, all while watching the drum major so you can keep on the beat. But I always used the seniors and other
1 I woke up monday morning with the one thought in my mind - Rye Neck. We had gone all the way last year to the section final with them, and after me hitting the pipe in the final minutes to win it, they scored on the counterattack and won the the section. I had never experienced a loss like this one. I was the kid on the team who before the season started, no one really knew if I was good or not. The season I had my freshman year ended up pretty well - nine goals, six assists, and a spot on the all-league team.
