We went into the playoffs ranked 4th in AA so we hosted 13th seeded Weir. Everyone expected us to win and host 5th seed Fairmont Senior. At first, it seemed like that would happen without a doubt as we headed into halftime, but we blew the lead and lost 29-27. I sat and cried in that locker room crying for 45 minutes telling myself that it would not happen again next year. Well, here we are.
My breakfast was the same as any other morning, a bowl of cereal and some yogurt. After breakfast I ran a quick routine check of my lacrosse bag. As soon as I opened it, the smell of my pads hit me like a truck, even though I had been playing for two years at that point and should have been used to it by then. It smelled someone hadn’t showered in six months and had rolled in wet dog. On the way to High Velocity I kept thinking that I had the chance to become a freshman on the varsity team.
Louie “lived and breathed the 1,500 meters and Berlin.”(22) Louie couldn’t get into what he could do best which was the 1,500 meters because “he couldn’t force his body to improve quickly enough to catch his older rivals by summer. He was heartbroken.”(22) so he shot for the 5,000. He ran against Norm Bright to qualify for the 5,000 meter. Louie finished in a dead-heat tie against Don Lash, an American record-holder and qualified for the Summer Olympics in Germany. At 19 years of
In my eighth grade year I was attending tournament held at Western Kentucky University. I won two of my three events and was debated when I got second in the other. I remember my mother saying to me, “Jack, you did so well today, yet you are not even excited about it. That really makes me sad, I thought my son would have much humility than that.” That right there… hurt. It was a true wake-up call of why I do speech and debate.
The road to glory started in Pierre, South Dakota. Where Berent, Cael, Trevor, Xavier, and I drove up to play for the state cup. The rest of the team was with their parents but we decided to carpool to save money. We were all joking around until we figured out that we were going to play the older tempo team, Tempo Blaze. At first, we thought that this would be a sweep, that we would win the whole tournament without worrying, but know we have to play the team that has never lost this year and we have never beaten for as
This setting is significant because Paul is able to join the Tangerine Middle soccer team because Tangerine Middle did not have his IEP form. The text states “ I looked at her angrily. ‘ I’m officially what?” ‘A student at Tangerine Middle School.’ ‘A visually impaired student? An IEP student?’ ‘No. Nothing of the kind.’ I closed my eyes in despair.
The second week of class really sparked up some great topics that I wanted to reflect on within my paper. From who is in the LGBTQ+ community, to if allies should be considered part of the community, and to multiple identities, I thought that I wanted to do a little more research on these topics and put my knowledge to the test. Some things I agreed with within class, and some things made me question myself and my beliefs. I also came across a few statements that I do not agree with, and I want to exercise my point along with being constructive with them. When it came to who was part of the LGBTQ+ community, I didn’t know there were so many different “parts” of the community.
I lost five consecutive student council elections in high school. Alas, I’m not a total loser. My sophomore year I went undefeated in my cross country league. Happily I did eventually win the Student Council Presidency my senior year. But on the whole, I wouldn’t bet on me to win anything.
My arms shot up in the air as the small crowd wailed and shouted. As we ran around with smiles on our faces and achievements on our mind, we took in the fact that we finally scored our first goal of the season. I started playing on a soccer team when I was around seven, and it’s been my favorite sport ever since. It’s when I started high school that I realized soccer wasn’t as meaningful to the small school as I hoped it would be. It turned out Mendocino hadn’t had a girls soccer team for around 4 years and that was quite a discouraging piece of information.
Most Stressful Game ever Played It was the day we had to play West Kent Hawks in State Playoffs for our seeding. We had lost to West Kent twice with our full roster and now we lost two of our good players, the odds weren’t good. We just beat Grand Rapids Christian on Friday and Rockford and Battle Creek Gold the day before. We were tied with West Kent, whoever won this game is going to the finals. The locker room was as quiet as the Alaskan wilderness.
