Another statement by Topend Sports in the same article from before, that states “Governed by a set of rules or customs.” This meaning of the qualification of a sport is that it must be ruled over, which is time limit, score sheets and mat size.

This means I am familiar with other sides of school, and I can share my experiences and try to make them fit into what we do/what is done in NJHS. I also did cheerleading in my spare time and got to experience leadership qualities. I was made co- captain with a few other girls and made sure I did my job right.
