My first time Frankie and I had wrestled against each other it was during the first tournament during the season in the semi-finals. The match was a very close one it was a five point to three point match which he had won. Frankie had just dominated the match with his strength and not by his wrestling ability it just made me realize I had to work harder in wrestling practice and the weight
As it was almost time for me to start running, I was so excited. When they called my name to run, the butterflies in my stomach built up more and more. The first event was the states race the one event that I don 't practice a lot. My run was really fast but not fast enough to keep up with these people. The next event was the poles.
The team continued to make errors upon errors and the game was suddenly tied. We hanged for over time. The refs told us to play the golden rule, and that is simply saying that whoever makes the first goal wins. Two minutes into the game and Cullman scores the winning goal. Game Over.
But nothing really happened until late in the 4th we went on defense they would try to waste time so they can win the game but they were near the end zone with 1:52 left and it was 3rd&6 and they handed it off to their running back Ethan Harrington and I ran up and saw a perfect way i could strip the ball then i ran up and grabbed the ball the stripped the ball right off his hands then the ball went up then went on my feet then i fell onto the ball and recovered it and I was so proud I've save us from losing the game but everyone else started to get on top of me then ref put those hands to our side the fans went nuts!!
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.
From there, it was on to the divisional meet where we would run against every team in Western Massachusetts. Despite our regular season success, every prediction article written about the race had us finishing 5th or 6th, and not qualifying for State. Instead of getting down because of the pessimistic predictions, we used them as fuel to motivate us. Before the race, my teammates and I analyzed every team to figure out which teams and which runners we needed to beat in order to secure that 3rd place
I was twelve when my team won the championship. “ Championships bring joy and happiness ,but takes a lot of work to get there. It was a warm and sunny day as I prepared to run the drills before the game. As my team and I were doing the drills such as sprinting,shooting, and passing I was already thinking about the game ,but realized I had to stay focused on the drills for now.
However, during the Districts race, around the beginning of the third mile, I experienced a pain in my side unlike any pain I had ever felt before. It was a difficult race to finish, as I wanted to give up. It would have been acceptable if I gave up, as we later learned I experienced a diaphragm spasm. Instead, I remembered the goal I set for myself, to be fully present in every workout and race, and to push through every obstacle I faced. So, I ran on, finished with a career personal record.
Our past is a unique collection of events which have occurred before the present moment, my past, before this moment on the soccer field was sadly, missing this exact shot time and time again. After countless failed attempts at this same shot, I saw a pattern and sought to correct my misfortunes. Although it took hours upon hours to fully master the craft of taking a penalty kick, I was eventually able to convert the shot into a goal 98% of the time. By having this understanding of what had happened to me in the past, and positively projecting this understanding into the future by practice, I was able to improve as a player, and as a person as I was beginning to see a connection between the game of football and how I lived my
“Touchdown Lafayette!” This was the start to my high school career and we were losing in the first half of the game. It took them forever to score so I believed that the defense could go hard and stop them just once. We knew if we lost it would be some smack going on social media so someone had to step up.
The coach is confident that they can make it but it is still up to the effort of the team. As the bond of the coach and runners grow, they become much better as a team. The State Championship qualifying race comes up and the team is excited but also nervous. After a close race, McFarland’s cross country team winds up placing 4th place which is the last qualifying spot for the State Championship
Later on in life too he was still running a few miles a day and he was around 60 at that time, which showed it kept him healthy and happy. Running and the Olympics had a huge and long lasting impact of Louie Zamperinis life from making him incredibly happy at times to deeply depressed at others. It all depended on running for him, it drove him to do things and empowered him to go beyond boundaries people haven’t even thought of going beyond. Overall though it had a positive effect on his life because if he had not have gotten into running he would have probably been doing criminal acts and be in prison, so it is a good thing he straightened
Then, against Highland Park, we were going to stop David Sachs and Luke Norcia and make the rest of their team beat us. They did not. Then, with all the confidence in the world going into our first conference home game, we played Niles North, and they took it to us. Unlike New Trier, Niles North was fast and wanted to run up and down, so we wanted to slow it down because they could not guard us in our half court offense. We were going to run Platteville as our primary offense.
