In seventh grade, my buddies and I considered trying out for the golf team and imagined it would be an exciting task to venture. The previous summer, I had gone to the golf course and practiced a generous amount of time on my game and I believed I would be skilled enough to make the team. Also, I had friends that were on the team the previous year and that gave me an extra incentive to try out. In seventh-grade, after trying out for the golf team, I made it. Making the team sparked the greatest passion for a game I have ever had, and it has become my life rather than a hobby.
Running onto the field, I can 't believe we won it - the High School Girls ' Rugby Championship. We all celebrate our exciting moment of victory, but months later the tryouts for the summer travel team would happen. The fun-filled first day was also nerve-wracking, but we all have each other like a family. Then, the next day of tryouts with starting sprints and stretching. Next, the contact portion - tackling with passing - came upon us faster than we thought.
Mikesbikes is a in class simulation that we did in BUS 102. The objective of the game was to get the have your company have the highest shareholder value out of the competing teams in our class. It was possible for the shareholder value to raise greatly or go down and eventually go into bankruptcy. Here today is our team explaining how we were very successful in the game. During the first few weeks of the practice run of the game, everyone in our group was having a very hard time getting used to it.
Michael and Scottie both highly impacted their high school teams, but Michael just the next big thing. He received a full scholarship ride to the University of North Carolina. Michael won multiplied awards and a national championship in his three year span at the UNC. Scottie was from little town in Arkansas and was quite small to compete at a college, these limited his chances. He didn 't let any of this stop him.
Most high school athletes across America share one common aspiration: play their sport at the next level in college. For a select number of fortunate athletes, that dream becomes a reality when they commit to a school and sign their letter of intent. But are they really fortunate? College athletics are oftentimes not as glamorous as one would think. The transition to college is not a walk in the park, but add a rigorous summer conditioning program, two-a-days everyday, and the pressures of coaches you have yet to impress, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Travis Bonner made two additional touchdowns in the fourth quarter. When the score reached 33-15 Jenkins County allowed their Junior Varsity team members to finish the game. Senior players didn’t mind sharing their final moments on the field with their younger teammates. “They needed to experience how the game is played at the high school level and they need all the experience they can get for next year,” Joiner said. There were more points scored in this game than any other game in the 2015 season for Jenkins County.
1 I woke up monday morning with the one thought in my mind - Rye Neck. We had gone all the way last year to the section final with them, and after me hitting the pipe in the final minutes to win it, they scored on the counterattack and won the the section. I had never experienced a loss like this one. I was the kid on the team who before the season started, no one really knew if I was good or not. The season I had my freshman year ended up pretty well - nine goals, six assists, and a spot on the all-league team.
Coach Smith started talking, and he was talking about how the freshmen team last year went undefeated. I knew we could do it to but everybody had to show up to play. He said that he had talked to our coach last year. Coach Gade said that “we are a good team.” I thought we could have been a lot better. Then he said it.
Taking the field the Evolution “East Peoria Marching Raiders, you may take the field in competition.” During the four years of high school, I was able to get involved with the East Peoria High School Band program. The marching band has evolved since I joined in 2011 and it has been improving each year. My freshman year we used to march trombones, I was probably the worst one on the field when it came to the marching aspect. There was a lot of foundation work being planted as I learned the terms, how to read drill, remembering counts, memorizing music, managing homework on long Tuesday night rehearsals and most importantly how to enjoy oneself in the midst of a struggle. This was just the first year!
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.
Of course, being told such things by one of the most renowned coaches in the country would be enough to make anyone push their limits. After my sophomore cross country and track seasons were nulled by my physical limitations, I developed a sort of excitement that I wish I could feel again. “I can do ANYTHING” I would tell myself as I ran each workout. Sure enough, by the beginning of my junior cross country season, I was quickly catching up with the other girls on my team. In fact, my outlook was amazing; there were three elite meets that season, each with a limit of runners on my team that would be taken.
My dad would coach me on top of what the coach was teaching to make sure I was exceeding my limit. Years went by playing for different teams different coaches, and I began to get pretty well known for my athleticism. I never worked so hard in my life on something then I did on football. I started 1st string ever year at the position I was playing due to how hard I worked. Sophomore year shows up, bout the time colleges start scouting players to join there teams.
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.
My high school team doesn 't have a true setter so I asked my coach if I could hit front row and set back row; she said yes and I was able to try it out at my tournament yesterday for the first time. It went really well and I had a lot of success hitting on the right side. I have never been a pin hitter before so the opportunity was awesome. My coach thinks it will be a very great option come school season because one we need a setter and two she wants
It was all on the line and my team put the match on my shoulders against a strong middle ranked player. I knew the guy very well and I have played him a few times. He had to win 4 games and I had to win 3 games. The first two racks we went back in forth putting us both 1-1. He won the second game.
