February sixth was the day of my last middle school game. We were playing our rivals , Ledford middle school. The first time we played them we only lost by two points. The first five starters for Ledford and our first five including myself were all standing at half court for tip off. The ref. threw the ball up and Gillian tipped it back to me. I took off with the ball all the way to the basket and made a layup in less than a min. of the game. We already knew it was going to be a good game. We were up the whole first half of the game. We were so pumped up and thrilled that we were up. The crowd was very loud and there was a lot of cheering. When the team went back into the locker room for halftime coach Thompson was so happy

We were down by one, and I went in at the end of the game, and I took my opportunity to show what I was made of. I played with all my heart running up and down the green grassy field, going up against big guys-- fearing no one. We finally scored to tie up the game. Then overtime came and I was still in. Although we lost that game, it was the best game I ever had.
and it was close all the way to the end. We were down by 2 with 20 seconds to go and Mattson got fouled. He went to the line and made 1 of 2 free throws. Marquette had the ball and they missed their shot. We got the ball and we drove down the floor I got the ball and threw it to Jacob who threw it to Jake
The stands began to fill and it was time for the game to start and my team mates sat around me as me and the coach began our pregame speeches. Before every game I would give a speech and the thought of a good humorous speech always put a smile on their faces. I told the team “Listen boys we have spent the last six months busting our butts for this moment. This is where all the hard work pays off. Guys I don’t know about you
I leaped as high as I could and unfortunately missed the tip the game was already heading south but the game had just started so we had no worries. The first quarter had several lead changes we both had bad shooting quarters shooting below the 30% but that wasn’t what mattered we were all worried about looking good as a team and winning the game not individual stats. About ¾ of the way through the first quarter our coach called a timeout and called us to the sideline and said “Guys you are a great group of kids and have made my coaching experience beyond expectable and you are a bright group of kids so after this season I’ll be retiring and making sure I go out with bang so win this game for me!” and that’s when the game took a drastic change, we began to play with our heart not just our
There it was, standing in the distance, a tall gloomy gray-colored building. With a few splashes of blue paint added to the dull cement to add color to what would otherwise be a lifeless building. This building was non-other than the one and only Stoller Middle School. I never referred to it as a middle school but more as a prison, it was full of rules that were put in place just to suck away any possible fun from a child’s mind. Maybe I didn’t like the place because I was suspended five times from it.
Then we just scored and scored so at the end of the game it was 54-12 they never scored again we shook hands, and all i could hear was the crowd cheering for us. After that we got on the bus to head to chandler to get out things and head home. It was a short and loud bus drive to chandler. It was a happy day we all went home with smiles on our faces and we beat west everyone was happy I went home ate took a shower and went to
It was just amazing feeling to be there. Music was playing, fans were screaming, and it was just loud. The lighting was very bright then the usual rinks in America that I played for the other teams. And after I see this, I promised myself that I would never forget this game and the
NEW PROVIDENCE, NEW JERSEY- This past Friday, on June 5th, the rain did not prevent Salt Brook Elementary School from inviting New Providence High School students from across town for a day of community service. It was the high school’s third community service trip of the year as students previously visited the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside and Allen W. Roberts Elementary School.

before they did awards because they played songs well teams got ready and one of the songs was Hit The Quan. Then every cheer team there started doing the Hit The Quan dance. Then they started the awards. They read off by last place first so after they knew they were in top two the team was so happy, then when they said that Synergy got first place they went bazerk. It was insane how crazy the crowd got and how loud the chee team was.
We decided to go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Soon after we ate, we had to return to the convention center for the results. My team and I waited on stage for our division to be called. Right before the announcer said the results, we all held hands in anticipation and excitement. We just knew we were going to win.
I went up and high fived my teammates. I got put out for a couple of minutes to cool down. While I was put out I spent a couple minutes trying to get back in the game, but the rest of the time of the game I spent clapping and cheering on my team. A couple of painful minutes later the game ended and we had won. I high fived my teammates and the other team.
He seemed to be getting excited about this game. After all it was the championship game. I did get out that inning but we still had time on the clock, 5 minutes left. It wasn’t much, but even if we lost, we were going to go down fighting.
As I walked into the basketball court, I could feel the excitement of a new season. Players getting ready for the game, parents talking to others, coaches talking about points of emphasis, and referees waiting for the players. We started the game and by the first half, I scored 7 points. The score at halftime was 15 - 14. The Bears were winning.
Then I put on my basketball socks and shoes on and quickly ran down the basement stairs and found the fridge in the dark opened it and grabbed my favorite flavor of Gatorade, ran up the basement stairs and out the breezeway door and into my mom's silver painted car that was very dirty on the inside though it wasn't like that on the outside .We drove down Urban a very bumpy road that turns off into my road that I live on. Six minutes later we arrived at Marine City High school,I jumped out of the car and ran to the white rusty doors I saw my team and my coach standing with my team by the door .It wasn't time for us to play but our team was not the greatest team in the winter team. We were waiting for the other team to clear out the court. I was shaking with fear that I was going to mess up and lose the whole game for my team and not know the plays and who I’m
