“Out!” the umpire yelled to the crowd. My team cheered and ran into the dugout after that third out. I was the second person up to bat. The score was 0-2 we were down but we are to hyped up and ready to win this game. The championship.
I was born on that day. And I mean I really don't know anything beyond that point and gladly I don't want to. But so far what I do remember is a party, a baby's shower for my new sister to come. I mean it was a Mexican so there was a lot of noise and things got bad real fast. I know Jairo was there and we were playing soccer on the road just like any other kid would but as soon as we heard the police sirens we ran inside I tripped and fell and scraped my knee and while I was laying down on the floor in pain Jairo thought it would be funny just to laugh at the top of his lungs.
The next day was the regional game and Alicia’s mom,a woman who left Alicia two years ago, came to that game. Alicia broke down in tears and Tyra comforted her, even though Alicia has been to her. She helped Alicia up off the ground and then during the game they played as a team not as a one man team. They won the regional and after the game, the team took pictures with the cup. After most everyone left, Tyra told her parents that she overheard the conversation and asked if they were still moving, and they told her that they found a school in England that would deal with her sister, and Tyra was glad that they won.
“Our scrums looked good nice and low, our rucks were very aggressive, we stole a few of their rucks which means the girls were really getting low and driving well,” said head coach Tamara Dixon after the game. “We secured all of our lineouts, and all of our scrums as well, and the penalty count was very low.” The lady bruins were the opener for homecoming this weekend and they certainly led the charge with their big win against the Mountaineers. With their third win this season they officially secured a playoff spot for the first time in Sheridan’s rugby history.
“We cheered a lot to whoever was batting and pumped each other up when moving towards the outfield,” Delilah Brown (9) explained. The game ended in a tie, “It felt good because we haven’t won in a while,” Piekert (9) shared, “I was happy because it means we’re improving.” “We’re all really supportive of each other,” Brown (9) shared. The girls had a rough start but their
Sophomore Right Side Hitter, Kathryn Cather, is able to find the hole in the court, scoring the winning point with a tip (25-17). The Rebels battle out the first point in the third game, and Sophomore, Kate Gibson, ends it with a block for Ole Miss (1-0). With a couple ball handling errors made by the Cowgirl’s setter, Alexandra Aguilera, McNeese started to lose moment (13-7), causing the Cowgirls to call a timeout. After the timeout, Gibson slammed the ball down for a kill (14-7), which started a run for Ole Miss (17-7). Again, the Rebels refused to let the Cowgirls pull ahead.
“Wow,” A girl was leaning over Cinderheart, who was sprawled on the ground. Her leg was slightly at a strange angle, and it was already swelling up a bit. The story was that Heathertail, Cinderheart’s arch nemesis since grade two, was on the opposite team. My team. Cinderheart was sprinting to the third base when Heathertail chucked the ball at her and did other stuff (great word) that was sure to get her suspended.
“OH! I have a great idea, follow me.” She picked up our walking pace. “Where are we going?” I asked with a laugh. “You tell me what sport you like better--Baseball or Football?” “Honestly I’ve never been big into sports but maybe…baseball?” “Baseball it is!” We ended up at the baseball stadium and sat as close to the top as we could. “So this is what you do to pass time?” I laughed.
We ended up winning 8-0 with a run rule after 4 innings. After that, all the parents said “great job rebels.” This is one of my best experiences in baseball I have had. I got to spend time with my family and also my friends. We had a lot of fun while doing what we love. On the way back we got a text from our coach and he said,”that there will be a party at his house.” The party was fun, and we also got a huge trophies and new
“Wake up” Mom yelled, all the way from downstairs I could hear her. I checked on the time and it was already 6:00 am when we were supposed to leave. I jumped out of bed, ran to my closet and started getting ready for our road trip to Chicago. When I got down stairs, everyone was running around the house, trying to get ready. Mom was getting her makeup on, Dad was taking a shower, Alyssa was getting dressed and Garrett and I were the only ones ready.
In order to stay on the field I needed to be running in an event, and a spot had just opened. Excited with the biggest smile on my face, I knew that fate had given me another chance to run this race right. I decided to pick up my phone and call my parents. Of course, I got scolded for about five minutes but it was all worth it. Turns out, my parents were on there way back and luckily my track meet had been on that road to home.
Going Down in History I remember it like it was yesterday. The adrenaline rush, the anticipation, the sky-high nerves, and the undying support from our small Community. Softball, just like football is a very prided sport in Danville. In 2008 it was my sophomore year of High School, which meant another year of softball. Another year of unforgettable memories with teammates.
