You have to work for them. Once the season started I knew what I had to do to get my chance to win a state title. I started the season off, being ranked first at my weight class which was 106 lbs. That was a huge confidence booster and that 's when I knew it was my chance to win a state title. I went through the first half of the season being undefeated and then the second match back from Christmas break I bumped up to wrestle the third ranked wrestler at 113 lbs.
The many times I had loss to him it just made my confidence just go down the drain a lot of the time. 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
Or is one better off sticking to school itself? Wrestling in college would provide new opportunities as well as limiting the things that a person could do.

First there’s practices, everyday for a few hours a day, they will take up much needed time for school work and other activities that are offered in college. There are meets and tournaments to schedule around as well.
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.
My favorite wrestler is Chris Perry, but I didn’t learn about him from watching him, I learned about him from a wrestling camp. I would have loved to watch his matches, but by the time I learned about him he had graduated. That made me very angry and I hope that it is on more this year so that I can follow my favorite teams. Some of you may disagree with me and say that wrestling is on enough or that there is higher demand for other sports. I would respond by saying that if they had put wrestling on more in the past there would be a higher demand for it now.
Running on this team has strengthened me both physically and mentally. I take ballet and lift weights to strengthen my muscles and my stamina for running. I think positively and My coaches and teammates have pushed me hard and encouraged me to push myself even harder. My junior year, we had few seniors on our team, and I stepped up to become one of the team’s leaders.
In cheer, the athletes are supposed to preform, which means they should be smiling, look good, be loud enough to be heard and do everything with vigor. Many of these athletes know from experience that it takes lots of training to get to this point to be able to lift people multiple times, do tumbling and then yell for the team represent. A wrestler from CU bolder stated that "I initially joined cheer as a joke. I had wrestled all my life and I can honestly say that Cheerleading is by far the hardest sport that I have ever done. It is incredible how much upper body strength some of the stunts really do need.
Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team. I have been on the most successful club team around. We have gotten third place at our national tournament two years in a row, and also won our national tournament one year. People say “you do not know what you have had, until you have lost it.” The meaning of this quote has become appallingly clear, as it has become my reality. Up until now, I have always taken volleyball for granted.
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!
From the first time I walked into the hammer circle, I knew that the hammer throw was going to become one of the most important things to me. My first time throwing the hammer was a complete failure. I actually threw it in the wrong direction and fell onto the ground. After practicing nearly every day for the past three years, I'm finally at a point where I'm confident in my skills. I’ve competed in national meets all over the country.
The season continued and it consisted of all half time blowout games. The team, the school, and the community were all very excited. We wanted to win a state championship. Everyone knew winning a state championship was going to be very difficult however because Stanberry was another undefeated team in another conference and on the other side of the playoff bracket. Stanberry was winning many blowout games like we were but everyone was saying how much harder the teams they were playing were.
