As an in-coming freshman who hadn’t played on a school team in middle school, I was at a disadvantage because I was behind in skills and didn’t know many of the tricks. Fortunately, the coach saw my potential and I made the varsity team. My coaches and teammates continually pushed me and helped me become an even better player than I was before. Over the course of my four years on the team, I faced several obstacles that made me feel weak and inadequate, but to overcome them I reminded myself that I loved soccer. The biggest obstacle I faced was getting a concussion my junior year.
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.
We are the Canmore Avalanches. We qualified for these championships as the first team ever of Canmore to do so. Be proud! Thus, we have come together today to win the Canadian national championships, two months from now and return to our hometown as legends. My dear girls to achieve this goal, we will need to play better than we ever have.
I had no experience playing at the varsity level, but I had played this position every year while growing up. I gave my best effort during long hot practices and games during the summer and these efforts paid off. I was a starting player for the rest of the season and took my team to the regional finals. This final game
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.
I was taken to the emergency room and I didn't leave until 5 o'clock the next morning. My hopes of making varsity as a sophomore were crushed that day. My symptoms were fairly severe, I had trouble walking, and reading of any kind gave me massive headaches. I was very sad that all of my hard work was amounted to nothing because of one stupid injury. Recovery was tough.
Right after we won the game we got to go to the senior football game right after our game they lost but they tried there hardest to win cause they were working hard and they got a lot of
They said he was too skinny and he was too fragile. So Kobe set out to prove everyone wrong. His freshman year his team went 4-20, but even then you could see Kobe’s love for the game and all of his potential. His Junior year Kobe led his team to the district championship game against their rival. Sadly they could not come out with a win.
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
They told me that it was just a bruised bone so I continued to play despite the awful pain that my foot was in. I played for about 2 weeks fighting through the pain and didn’t preform how I wanted to because I was slow and couldn’t put a lot of pressure on my foot. I was in a major slump and couldn’t buy a hit due to the pain the swinging cause me. Eventually, I finally got a hit and as I was running to first base my foot hit a hole in the ground. The basepaths were all grass and it was really choppy.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.--Syracuse and UConn are no strangers to playing each other. The former Big East foes have met 49 times over the years and the two teams will square off for the National Championship on Tuesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. For Breanna Stewart and the Huskies, they are searching for their fourth straight title. If UConn (37-0) can pull off the victory, it would be the first time in Division I women 's basketball that such a feat has been accomplished. Only UCLA, with seven in a row from 1967-73, has done it on the men 's side.
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.
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.
I was very nervous and so was the rest of the team. In week one against an opponent that rolled us the year before, we came out and beat them in a blowout half time game. This was to many players’ surprise. We knew that was going to be our hardest game of the regular season and we felt very confident no one was going to beat us now, at least in the regular season. The season continued and it consisted of all half time blowout games.
