It was the week before we vs Franklin in our championship game and this was actually my first time playing for an actual championship and they had so many different rules then city volleyball it was a bit hard to learn and remember all the rules but I got it down pretty well after a few games and practices. We actually won all of our games except 3 to make it to the championship game. I loved my teammates, they all worked really hard to call the ball and help each other out through stuff all of our practices went well and everything but it kinda sucked because even before the championship, we lost against Franklin twice so we were pretty nervous to hear that they won and we were going to be versing them. My coach kept saying, “Bella
I admired their Spirit and determination, but I knew I wouldn’t hear the end of it. They did not exhibit good sportsmanship this year. As we walked out of the gymnasium, none of the Sophomores talked about the 2nd year defeat. It was overwhelming how much of a change we would need to make if we didn’t want to place last for next year’s Spirit
If you cannot handle a loss it is difficult to be successful. This became evident my junior year of high school as my team prepared to play for the state championship. We had a winning mindset, as any great team would going into that game. However, when the final buzzer rang and we did not come out on top, I was struck with emotion, yet I knew I needed to glorify God and represent my school instead of letting my frustration overcome me. Basketball taught me to keep going and never allow the tough moments to define me.
The rest of my teammates refused to pass to Andreus because when he had the ball, it was an almost certain turnover or a missed basket. I decided to take Andreus’s touches into my own hands. I made it my goal to do my best to get out to an early lead in every game, so that I could get Andreus the ball without jeopardizing my team’s chances to win. Getting him
In contrast to not making the basketball team for his high school, Jordan worked hard everyday to get better and use the athleticism god had given him. Through blood, sweat, and tears, Michael succeeded in basketball but was a very gifted athlete in many sports. One reporter once reported, “In 1994, he signed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox and was assigned to the Birmingham Barons, but his baseball career was dismal” (Johnson). Jordan was a multi sport athlete that succeeded in basketball but wasn’t pleased with that. To follow his dream Michael didn’t give up his dream to play two sports professionally.
Anyways we lost our game not just lost but we [Type text] got whipped. Why does it feel like coach duck is just throwing our season away? Moral of it all coaches will always put their favorites in. Especially if coach is related to someone on the time no matter how good they are or how sorry they are that person is guaranteed to play. That’s not fait to all the other kids though who has been there all year work hard.
I remember that when we played Los Fresno my sophomore we lost to them extremely bad, I remember the score being 72-0. Towards the end of the 2014-2015 season when we didn’t win any games our head coach Jason Starkey told us that “ next year we will have a better season and that we will work together to win games. The
I felt like everything was collapsing around me. I was about to sob my heart out. But with some strange turn of events, the coaches said it wasn’t over. Now, what I am about to speak about is absolutely crazy and unfair in my mind as I reminisce about the event today. So basically, in this little league, if you went undefeated on the season and you lost in the championship game, you got to play again.
In all three sports stories, the outcome was basically the same; because of the referees poor calls, the team that deserved to win the game lost, and that made the players and fans feel terrible. They were like funerals, sad and painful. Therefore, in today 's era many teams are losing when they rightfully won the game, and this should not be happening. The NCAA and NFL should only send officials that they know are going to make consistent and competent calls. If the referees make big mistakes, they should be suspended for more than just one game.
Yeah, those rivalries have gone by the wayside, the NBA honestly is no fun to watch for me. Do not get me wrong I had so much fun pulling for The Golden State Warriors last year but the regular season is just boring. ESPN actually last year aired a game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Charlotte Hornets last year, and that just screams awful no matter how much you love Anthony Davis. Ah, baseball the sport that is slowly slipping into the same boat as Major League Soccer. Some rivalries here but it is about the same as the NFL, playoff matchups get confused as rivalries.
It took us by shock how much they improved their skills by one game, and before we knew it we lost the third set. It shook us, but we knew we still had a chance. All we needed was another match win, but they slowly crept back on us again. Finally with a tied two match win, we went to the fifth and final match. We put it on the court that game.
Have you ever had a failure to that ultimately turned into a success for you? My failure was when I had a basketball game in Conway, Arkansas. It was the championship game of the night that everybody wanted to see including myself because I was hype and ready to play. The tip-off had begun at seven o’clock at night. My team got the tip-off.
He won the second game. This put him up 2-1, so we both needed two more games to win. The next rack he broke and made nothing then I ran the rack out. Then I broke and missed after making two balls. He ran out to one ball and then scratched, giving me ball in hand.
We were first for our JV conference and losing was not an option at this point. I was made to sit out to save my chances of an accidental foul. The agony of watching the scoreboard favor the other team was unbearable. As I watched the clock tick down to its last minutes, I was told to sub in. The next three words that escaped my coach’s mouth will forever be stitched in me.
My junior year I was ranked no.2 all year, and for that it gave me pride to do my best and outwork everybody. One little thing can set you back a long ways. As for me I broke my hand doing what I love. The time I had to sit out and watch my teammates was way too long and to watch made me upset and down to not be able to do what I love. As time went on things slowly became stronger and better, and before long it was time to get back onto the mat.
