High and his name is Logan Northup from Sigourney. I have inspired my brothers to play every year and my Dad coaches them too but they have never been undefeated. Logan taught me tricks and techniques because he played soccer in college. He got me started playing soccer for William Penn College youth leagues after I got too old to play for Sigourney anymore. Now I play soccer for the Oskaloosa team and I have played for them every year in the spring and fall.
However, I realized my love and desire for the sport, which aided me to overcome this emotional scar by avowing to focus on becoming an even better player. The summer following my sophomore year I had a running routine, eating regimen, and training that I followed to make myself stronger. During that season my teammates, coaches, and fans took notice of my new motivation, I was always sent out to cover the best players on the other team. I was so focused that I emulated defensive plays of the US Women’s soccer team and played every game like it was the championship game of the season; because of my determination that season I receive the MVP award. Later, after winning the award I recognized that I did not only train harder for the award, but I worked harder because I had matured in my love for soccer and in my personal life to prove to myself that nothing is impossible.
Earning this ranking was a significant accomplishment for me, because being in the top 3 in cross country was important when it came to a crucial or close meet. It makes me feel proud that for tennis and for cross country I was able to make it to that 3rd spot and be one of the leaders on the team. I have worked hard to earn important roles on the teams. I also knew I have to try best to keep my lucky number 3 positions. The last significant reason why 3 is my lucky number is because I earned 3 year Varsity awards my senior year in the sports I played in high school which were cross country, swimming, and tennis.

This is how sports hough high school have influenced me; they have helped me grow and learn humility and purpose. When I was in eighth grade i was the star of my recreational soccer league, so going into highschool I was not only expecting great things, but I was expected by others to do great things. My coaches, my teammates, and my friends all knew me as a great player which put a lot of pressure on me walking into high school tryouts. I did not know anyone there but I quickly saw that the level of skill I was competing with was something that I had never experienced before. With that I went from being the best player in the league to not making the team my freshman year.
I feel proud and excited when I got a chance to join Denver Ethiopian Community soccer team. Every week, we trained to improve our talent and fitness to become the best team in the tournaments. I felt like I was a favorite player from the rest of the team because of my talent, discipline and skills’. At the time it was easy for me to break through for the first team. On the other hand, I often felt out.
Shooting hoops, doing layups, and playing lightning was the way I spent most of my summer days. I love basketball. When I started playing basketball in leagues, I really enjoyed. My coach and teammates were nice and we were like a family. We won all our games and had a lot of fun.
I went in with a negative attitude, but I remember walking out of that gym after every practice having accomplished something new. After a few months my jumps got higher, my stunt group had the highest basket toss, I got a back-tuck. Everything fell into its place, and I finally discovered what I loved most. I am so grateful I never quit after that first practice, cheer has shaped who I am today. I’m now a captain and three year cheerleader at Brighton, 2 year United Spirit Association All-American Athlete, and planning to cheer in college.
Being on a team is a special thing. It’s just like being a part of a family. I have been a member of the girl's varsity lacrosse team for four years. Many lessons have been learned from the wins, the loses, and the successes that our team has had in the past years. As a member of a team, I had to fully commit myself, because my actions did not only have an effect on myself but my teammates as well.
I played well my 8th grade year and wanted to impress the varsity coach. So I attended every camp, workout, and winter practice to hopefully even get his attention. Even if I didn’t perform well I made sure I would always hustle and have a great attitude towards the game. The first day of practice I went and warmed up with the JV squad. In the middle of stretching the varsity coach shouted at me, “Green!
Confidence is the key to academic success. My greatest academic achievement is becoming a member of the National Honor Society. When i entered middle school, I wanted to play sports with my friends. That year I tried out for the soccer, basketball, volleyball, and softball team. I excelled in these sports and as a result, I learned to push myself and take risks.
Indoor and outdoor track may be similar to some but to me they are as different as soccer and basketball. I have been on the indoor and outdoor track teams at sutton since seventh grade. Being around a varsity sport for so long has allowed me to see the greats pass through the halls of this school and has allowed me to become one as well. During my junior and senior year I became captain of both the indoor and outdoor track teams leading them to many DVC
I ran to the 45 to the 35 to the 20, hoping to find the kick returner. 8 months waiting for this moment all the sweat, pain, 100 degree sun beaming UV rays to my face. I kept going for the guy next to me performing to the best to his ability. Success was the result of all the hard relentless work done throughout June into August. I acknowledged that my team had a good group of seniors who were high character student-athletes I spent most of childhood with.Ultimately finishing with a record of 3 wins and 7 loses taught me many lessons on becoming a better person and
