I am planning to run track in the spring, but I hope I can do more events than just the 1 mile and the 4x400m relay. I am surprised how fast middle school has gone by. We are going to be in high school in less than a year! Now, just thinking about it, I am a little nervous. My guts are flipping and flopping if I think about it, just like 5th grade.
When I was in elementary school, you could say sports were not exactly my forte. I never even came close to going to the Jr. Olympics. Although, when the applications for junior high sports were sent out, my dad suggested I run cross country. I thought he was crazy and people that ran cross country were crazy. However, he somehow talked me into running.
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
Lastly, if you play sports all throughout your time in school without concentrating on your grades and it turns out you aren’t good enough to become a paid professional athlete, you are left with nothing to help you succeed in the real world. Even some of the best athletes ever careers get cut short. One example of this is Bo Jackson. He very well might have been the greatest athlete of all time, but his career was cut shorts because he got injured. So if you ever want to be like Bo Jackson and play with the professionals, just make sure you have a backup plan like an
Zamperini set many various records for his high school track team. He had then received a scholarship for his outstanding achievements in track. Louis dealt with much bullying at his school because he was unable to speak English fluently. In the early 1930’s, Louis Zamperini had started his education, and continued to stay educated until he graduated from the University of Southern California in 1940, where he used his scholarship he received when he set a mile record of 4.21.2 minutes during the championships of a race. Throughout the early years of Zamperini’s life, he had about eight years of education.
Entering high school my freshman year, many things were new to me, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to get involved in as a student. The only thing I was sure of was that I was going to play high school soccer. I’d been playing soccer since I was about 8 years old, and finally having the ability to play for the high school I grew up watching was exhilarating. My main goal going into the soccer program was that I wanted to make the varsity soccer team by my senior year in high school- my brother had been a former varsity player, and I greatly wanted to fill his shoes and leave my mark at the school. Throughout my four years in the program, that was my main focus, but I was happy to discover that I was also making friends along the way.
Did you participate in track in high school? My daughter has been doing track for three years now (both indoor and outdoor) and has done every hurdle distance, 200 meter sprint, relays, and this year the triple jump. I think that she prefers the triple jump out of all of the events. Like you, I want to learn how to teach mathematics to all grades/ages. I love math- just not statistics!
Soccer had helped me break out of my shell socially and provided an outlet for stress relief. My life revolved around soccer. However, in the spring of freshman year I was burning out. I had finished the fall season of high school, winter league was over and I was trying to balance spring club soccer with high school track. Without a break and feeling overwhelmed, I grew disinterested in soccer as it became a stressful environment for me as the older girls had to join our team and I was no longer seeing the field a lot.
Millions of parents and athletes across the country have encountered the issue of playing time when it comes to high school sports. Each one of them is oblivious to the fact that playing time is decided by ability. Not by the coach. Innings, playing time, minutes, games- It is called many different things, however, they all mean the same thing- how hard the athlete is willing to work towards the sport and whether they show it. Therefor, high school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all of the players on the team because it is an unfair practice and stunts the growth of the more successful players.
Track and field day was coming soon, I was with my third grade class ready to practice for running hurdles in PE class. I had never ran hurdles before, so I was quite excited. The first time trying it, I ran and jumped. Everything went well; I was quite confident about it. For the second round, I ran and jumped just like the first time, but it didn't turn out like what I had expected.

When they race at home Tyson would always win and get excited. After the races Tyson said that “she inspire me.” The way Tyson get inspired is to run fast and be the fastest in world.
I am the youngest of three children with two older sisters coming through high school before me. Both of my sisters were outstanding runners for Middletown South and are now running on collegiate levels. Then there is me following in my dad 's footsteps, trying to leave my mark in Middletown South 's wrestling history. On entering my freshman year there were many expectations for me to do spectacular
Even on games where I didn’t start, I was getting a lot of playing time. That really pushed me to be even better for my senior season. After my first season of varsity was over I felt even more motivated to get better. I started lifting weights almost every day, even if it meant I had to go to the gym at midnight and still go to school the next morning. The summer of my senior year all I did was either work or work out, I barely spent any time with my friends.
But they figured it out and after camp school was starting, and that didn’t go well because even though the football team was friends none of the school mates wanted them there so it was bad the first day. But they figured it out, work really well together, and they won all their football games and ended up winning the championship. In conclusion this essay was written to show teamwork and how important it is to have friends and teamwork with all your friends. This essay informs two things like my own experience with
Advocates for the NCAA claim that student athletes should not get paid because academics come first and sports are extra-curricular activities. However, the statistics do not back up the NCAA’s core values. For example, the NCAA Basketball Tournament requires up to 6 missed classes, many nationally televised games are played on weeknights, and this year the Florida State football team missed the first day of spring classes due to the national championship. Obviously, the NCAA is very concerned with the education of student athletes but it also seems as if the NCAA puts increasing revenue and publicity ahead of the importance of
