It was a hard fought battle after the first period I was down 2-0, after the second I was still down but this time it was 2-1, with short time left in the third period I got a takedown and was able to get the win 3-2. After a hard season it was time for sectionals. I was going in at 36-3. After two hard days I finished fourth which was very disappointing but I had to get ready for districts which was the following weekend. I go into districts mentally prepared to place and go to states.
This race quickly went from a race against the other teams to a race against my teammates and myself. I ran faster to widen the gap between Nolan. As the second mile came around, my coach told me again that I was first but then immediately after I heard shouting coming from him Nolan to catch up and stay as a pack. I couldn’t help but notice how tired I was. I thought “Only one more mile, keep your eyes on the prize” My teammate caught up to me.
Running onto the field, I can 't believe we won it - the High School Girls ' Rugby Championship. We all celebrate our exciting moment of victory, but months later the tryouts for the summer travel team would happen. The fun-filled first day was also nerve-wracking, but we all have each other like a family. Then, the next day of tryouts with starting sprints and stretching. Next, the contact portion - tackling with passing - came upon us faster than we thought.
Two years ago I played for the Carolina Reds. After a while we all determined we wanted a ring. During our first year we battled so hard to win a ring tournament. However we came up short every time. Here we were the last tournament of the year.

Snaider Family Scholarship Being an Athlete there can be many times where you could find yourself in a difficult situation.

When I think of leadership, I think of it as a skill that not everyone can develop. For me, it took numerous times of being a follower or a leader, before developing this skill and form the type of leader that I wanted to become. The particular leadership experience that I’m most proud of would have to be leading my high school wrestling team. I started off the season by enthusiastically creating an atmosphere that new members of the team would feel welcomed and strengthened the bonds I had with veteran members. At the end of the wrestling season, my wrestling team was triumphant in the eyes of the crowd and our coaches.
Has there ever been something that you pushed for or strived for as a team? For my soccer team, that was the end of season playoffs. In the spring of 2016, my team had finally earned the coveted spot of being one of the top four teams to qualify for the playoffs.

In fact, my outlook was amazing; there were three elite meets that season, each with a limit of runners on my team that would be taken.

Now, I wasn’t happy about them being sidelined, but it did finally give me a chance to recover my placement from the beginning of sophomore year. I wanted to help lead the team to state, and with what my coach had previously said, it didn’t appear to be too far out of my reach. However, “too far” should have been followed by an asterisk, as my season soon spiraled out of my

Other teams, parents and coaches gathered around to watch this “David and Goliath” match. The first two sets blew right by us and we won it with ease. Now, all we had to do was play the third and final set and were going home champions. Something, however; shifted in the other team, as we started to realize that they wanted to win just as badly as we did. It took us by shock how much they improved their skills by one game, and before we knew it we lost the third set.

We were up against McGavock High school, Coach Stuart warned us they are a strong team with a high bowling average. We chanted "Go Royals!" and began practice before the game.

I was extremely excited to be captain because of my love for the sport and for my amazing team, especially because it was going to be my last year competing. My school has still not won a City Championship, but my team and I wanted to change that this year. We all pushed ourselves to the limit, and we worked harder than ever before. On the day of our City Championship meet, we cheered each other on and we put on our best performance. We were all worried that the team that had been disqualified during my freshman year was going to win.
My team got the tip-off. After the tip I scored right as soon as I got the ball because I was wide open. Then, I ran back to the other end of the court to play defense but, as soon as I got back my team had a steal, so I ran as fast as I could to get in front of the ball to get another fast break point. I had the first eight points. To shorten things, I finished the half with 16 points.
