These terrible facts knocked me in the head at one of our last games. The game wasn’t challenging to score, but it was a big game. We were facing our rivals, Centerton, and attempting to hold them to zero. The entire world planned on coming. Everyone was gonna be there, seeing me mess up.
To add to the situation, everyone else on the new team knew each other very well because they had been playing together for over 5 years. Only two other kids were trying out, but they were in the same grade as the team members. This made me feel very much like an outsider and not worthy of being on the team. Especially when one of them jokingly told me that I shouldn’t be trying out for the team. All of these thoughts made me even more nervous while trying out and I was convinced that it was impossible for me to play on the
Children don’t tend to perform well in the field due to this pressure. I can relate to this idea as I have experienced this in my life once. My parents had high hopes for my brother. Once, on the day of the final match, my dad told him that he was sure to win and nothing could defeat him and his team. My brother got so much under pressure that he fainted before the game even started.
It is incredible how much upper body strength some of the stunts really do need. I now have cheered for over 7 years and I will never go back to anything else." Teams must be in top shape, especially in competitive cheer to preform perfectly and make sure it's all safe, not to mention the amounts of cardio they must go through to stay in shape (Lewis). Wrapping things up, cheer is harder than meets the eye. But many people don't realize that's the point, if you didn't look at the girls and say, "I could do that" then it's not done well enough.
It was a close game with a score of 4 to 5. Nothing eventful happened, but it was the first game we lost all season. Everyone began to lose hope, the crowd and the team. Few of us had hope we would win in the first place, but that numbers rose after our loss. Our opponents were just so good, but we knew we had two more chances to win The next game was close as well.
So, with only a few practices together we were as qualified as we could accomplish for the season. Just because I did not play loads that does not mean I did not make a difference this year. Still not very equipped for the season, I played the entire first game. Afterwards, my back was sore, the more I played, the worse it felt. During one of our games, with a humongous kick, my back got so awful I could
We lost pretty bad to them, but I thought we did extremely well against a Varsity team. This weekend really stuck out to me because we had such difficult teams we had to play against while we were down two vital players. We worked well as a team and definitely out worked every team we played
Even though I didn’t play varsity, I still super supportive and excited we made it that far. They fought to the very last point and they were very upset that they lost. This year we lost those 6 seniors that played and they were very good. Even though we lost those seniors, we still have very talented upper classmen. One of my teammates said, “Talent never graduates.” I can tell she wants to win as bad as I
I was very wrong about that. During the tryouts, I couldn’t keep up with the other girls. I didn’t make the team, but I was the home manager for the team. I enjoyed being the manager because I got to see how much running I would have had to do if I had made the team. I am so glad that I didn’t make the team, because I can’t run over a long period of time and I would have to be in a game for 30 minutes at a time.
They had a very selfish player that had almost half of their points. So we figured if we just lock him up when knew we were gonna win. He scored about 5 more points to start the 3nd half so by that time i just started guarding him. I knew he was weak minded and just wanted to shoot over me so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt.
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
Of course, my team decided we were not going to take the game too serious since we won before and karma caught up with us really fast. Somehow, two quarters in and we were losing terribly but I had to let my team with a horrible fall to my head. In the beginning, I was unaware of injury to my head so I kept on playing till I felt dizzy and knew something was wrong. Even after my terrible fall, I wanted
Six weeks later after my broken leg I was finally ready to play again. But it’s already the championship game. My team, The Cobras have not made it to the championship until this year. To bad I didn’t help them get here. The Smoove twins Chris and Jrue have played outstanding Trevon and Andre were playing good as well but Robert and Tyron weren 't playing that good so we needed one more good guy to make this team great... And I was that guy.
