During the 6 minute match, we had the first day, I was put on my back 15 times. Time flew by soon enough the official matches began, and I hit the jackpot of wrestling in the very first tournament. In that tournament, the Junior Varsity wrestlers were guaranteed two matches plus a third one if we do win one of the two matches. I was confident because I believed I have learned pretty good amount of techniques in the three-week period but I was mistaken. The matches began with my weight class; I was called down first.
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.
However, they did just recently bring a little two game road losing streak to a halt by winning its next to games against the win less Philadelphia 76ers 84-80, coming back two nights later to destroy a decent Washington Bullets team 111-78. In the victory over the Sixers, the Celtics used a big fourth quarter to
The season I had my freshman year ended up pretty well - nine goals, six assists, and a spot on the all-league team. I proved myself as a starter on the squad, and our season almost ended in elation. The section final would have been a big win for the program, as we had been to the championship three times prior and never won it since our state championship win in 2010. 2 I
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
The team has focused in practice on conserving energy for the late game. This training can be shown by a recent game against region foe Central Forsyth. The team was losing by 19 points by the fourth quarter. The players pushed and the game went into overtime and North Atlanta tied 33 to 33. They pulled out an amazing overtime victory of 39 to 33.
Throughout playing tennis for Creekside Middle School, I have faced lots of success. I played varsity all three years there, and during my sixth grade year, helped my team win the annual county tournament between middle schools. Though I was successful for many of my matches, I did met with failure at times. One of these times would be in my seventh grade year, when my doubles partner and I had lost in the final round of the tournament. This defeat would be one of the reasons that led the Creekside tennis team placing outside of the top three at the county tournament.
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.
Now my senior year all my hard work has payed off as I am a starter on the defense and special teams. I know that just as I did, the underclassmen are struggling with all their might so they can snatch the starting spot from under me. Understanding that I must begin every practice as if my job were on the line I go out onto the field every day with a fiery passion. Although I
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.
I recalled a quote my dad told me when I was young, "Life is a journey, not a destination." While we didn 't win, we enjoyed the journey there. The next year I joined the team again, working hard and practicing to get better. I took any failure as a lesson to improve myself. We didn 't win that season, but this time I wasn 't depressed about the loss.
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.
The score was fifty-six to fifty-eight. As soon as I came in the game, I knew I was still on fire from the first half, so I smiled because I knew I was going to get the ball. When I got the ball, I shot a mid-range shot and I tied the game up. Then time went by to where nobody was scoring. It was like both teams were playing good defense, but the other team had scored with six seconds on the clock.
We scurried as fast we could to the other side of the field. I was losing my breath, tasted the blood of discouragement, and felt pain that taunted me. Since they were better than us, they made a goal. We played the game for an hour straight, but the eighth graders dominated us. They were like the great, exploit leaders who won every battle and war, while we were like the slaves to
