The sport of lacrosse is a fast action, rapid paced game involving loads of running and precision movements. Playing lacrosse is my favorite sport because, it brings together my friends and me, it keeps me in stay shape, and keeps me disciplined and motivated for school. Every lacrosse practice brings together a massive group of friends to a place where we can be ourselves, and cherish an extravagant game. At school I never get to be myself fully, however out on the field surrounded by teammates, I can be myself and not worry about anybody judging me or putting me down. The team doesn't always start out being super friendly, although in the middle of the season the team usually becomes a family after bonding throughout the season.
While his peers fill their weekend plans with friends or by studying for algebra, Junior, Richard Conie, takes his time to perform locally. Conie and a couple of his friends came together with their talents, to form a band known as “North of Lane”. They have gone from practicing in garages, to opening at the LC Pavilion.

Raising a Rebel Have you ever had overprotective parents? Let me tell you a story of myself being one of them. At the end of every month, after Sunday mass, my children and I would visit local Toronto landmarks like the Ontario Science Centre or the High Park to take a rest from work and school. Jeffry would always favor High Park because of the zoo and his love for animals. However, Amelia would rather get her hands on the kid-friendly activities in the museum.

It is a cliché to say I have always known what I want to do with my life, but in my case it happens to be true. I have always wanted to give back, even from a young age I was donating toys and food to families around the holiday season and helping raise money and gather non-perishable foods for the local food bank. I was drawn to the feeling of seeing someone smile after getting something so simple or accomplishing something meaningful to them.

Nathan and his acceptance into a local ball club had his father exclaiming how he was “chust like de American boy” (16). The freedom these children achieved is evident through the quote, “it wasn’t long before the young Duvitches were able to enjoy outside companionship” (16), contrary to the days where “they headed straight for home, never lingering on the playground” (4). In summary, the acceptance of the Duvitch elders prompted their own acceptance and gave the Duvitches their freedoms as American
Indoor and outdoor track may be similar to some but to me they are as different as soccer and basketball. I have been on the indoor and outdoor track teams at sutton since seventh grade. Being around a varsity sport for so long has allowed me to see the greats pass through the halls of this school and has allowed me to become one as well. During my junior and senior year I became captain of both the indoor and outdoor track teams leading them to many DVC
