The anticipation running through me, My nerves building up in me as I get into my stance like I am about ride a horse. I pull my club back and pull forward with all my might. Clang! the ball takes off. It goes flying in the air and blop it hits the water right next to us. My heart shuddered to the bottom. That was the worst shot I have ever taken. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid I thought with anger. The kid behind me hit the ball right into the bottomless pit the sand trap. Steve walked over to check if the ball was playable. He comes back and tells us that where we are playing that ball . We hop back onto the golf cart and we head to Blake's ball
At the age of fifteen, the end of my freshman year in high school, I started golf. Being in a sport I had to keep up a high grade point average I worked very hard to maintain a 4.0 GPA on our 5.0 scales. Therefore, I continued to work hard to stay up in the ranks and also stay eligible, I was able to receive an invite to join the National Honors Society. I was excited that all my hard work was paying off not only for just being eligible to play golf, but to also be allowed to join a very elite and well-known Society. Golf motivated me and helped me have a positive look at my schoolwork, which also helped me receive my Golf Scholarship, to the Colorado
Being on a team is a special thing. It’s just like being a part of a family. I have been a member of the girl's varsity lacrosse team for four years. Many lessons have been learned from the wins, the loses, and the successes that our team has had in the past years.
I am an active member in a wide variety of activities. I am very involved in 4-H and FFA. Through these clubs, I have participated in many community service projects. I work hard in the classroom and I’m very goal driven. I have a 3.14 GPA, and I strive to do better each and every day. I have participated in volleyball, basketball, track, and cheerleading. These activities have taught me teamwork, which will play an important role in the real world.
Nevertheless, the sport is not just about playing it, but learning from it. The game has probably taught me fundamental concepts of life. There is no denying that people consider me a decent player, but that doesn’t mean that I’m the best. There is a vast amount of better players that are even younger than me training to the maximum of their capabilities. I discovered something new, and my drive to become a better player and person came with it. The sport has taught me that not everything will always be what I initially expected, but that shouldn’t stop me from reaching my goals. For example, my team and I had won three consecutive district titles for our school. The team came in Sophomore year of college into the Junior-Varsity team thinking everything would be ours.Nothing was the same as we let our heads
I am deeply honored to be given the opportunity to join the National Honor Society and be among some of the most exceptional students in our school. Being given this opportunity shows my family and myself that I’ve truly worked as hard as I can to succeed. Growing up around adults with a good work ethic has taught me to see the reality in life. Working hard will help create a better future.
Tiger Woods was born in Cypress, California, in 1975. Tiger Woods was raised to be a champion. Brought up by a father who put a golf club in his hands before he could walk. For an entire generation of kids, Tiger was a hero and viewed in the same light as the best athlete in the world. Tiger Woods studied at Stanford University, and won a number of amateur U.S. golf titles. By the summer of 1996 he shot to fame after winning the Master’s at Augusta, with a record score of 270 and at the age of twenty-one he was the youngest player to earn the title. He became among the top best golf players of all time since turning pro at the age of twenty. His 14 major tournament championships are second only to Jack Nicklaus who has a total of 18, a record he once seemed destined to exceed. Tiger Woods is one of the greatest golfers to have ever played the game. His tournament record worldwide is greater than anyone else’s. He has been at the top of the game for twenty years now; he is probably the most formidable force in the modern age of golf. He is one of a kind, my idol.
Many people would consider golf to be a game rather than a sport. Golfers do not have to be great athletes or in terrific physical condition. Golf is accessible to most people and it does not require a team (most times), so it seems to be a game. Golf does require skill, practice, and athleticism, the same as other sports. Pro golfers practice often, are in great physical condition and make a living from golfing. Golf draws many spectators per year. Golf meets the definition of a sport because it takes skill and practice to be a great golfer, and meets the large majority of definitions.
I was rounding the base, running to third I could hear my mom and mina (grandma) yelling “run maddison, run”. In that moment I knew my love for softball would take off. I was about 4 or 5 years old, on a T-ball team named after the major league baseball team the Red Sox. I had games every Saturday that my mom, sister (Cassidy) and Mina would some to while my dad worked most of the time. I continued to play T-ball throughout the years than eventually moved to the level of softball. I learned to absolutely love the sport and learned how to play well with others and work as a team and in a quick moving and fast pace environment.
My freshman year, I played the JV team for the first time, before that I never played on a team. I am not what you would call good at playing golf but because of the great memories I have playing the game, intrigues my heart to ‘golf on.’ Every golf meet I had, my dad was right there next to me in the backround watching every choppy swing. Being on the golf team made me feel like I fit right in Wahlert. In the
I was on the Girl’s Golf team for two years, and managed the Boy’s team for one. I love to play, and being in a small team was a lot of fun. Their wasn’t girls fighting over who would play varsity or not, but instead pushing each other get their lowest scores. My coach, Mr. Keeton, taught me that it doesn’t matter what I score, that if I had fun, then that is all that matters.
The activity I enjoy outside of my classes is Lacrosse. I started playing Lacrosse in third grade by joining the Farmington Youth Lacrosse team. Lacrosse is something I care about because it is something I am good at and enjoy playing. I also like being on a lacrosse team because it helps me work together with other people and collaborate on group projects in school. What keeps me playing lacrosse is there is always something you can do better and trying to be the best you can be is fun and challenging. Some aspects of lacrosse that are specifically satisfying are scoring goals, successfully dodging opponents, and of course winning games. A few things that I find are exciting are faceoffs and when everyone tries to get the ball if it falls
One of the most significant activities in my life would have to be soccer ever since I got a hold of the ball in 10th grade, it sparked my interest and a fire was ignited. It simply stared with a few friends asking me to join them then slowly progressed into everyday after school I would go outside to kick around the ball, I never really knew it was for me until I started getting more into it, soccer became my outlet more like an escape for me, it was somewhere I could go when I needed to be alone just the ball and I. Honestly, I never knew that it would affect me in the way it has, it started out as a just for fun kind of thing, then it escalated into actually playing games, turning more into a passion and I could actually see myself in the
Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is an option. At some points in my life I’ve hated the sport of wrestling. At other I’ve never loved anything more. All in all, wrestling has taught me a lot about myself. When i placed at the state tournament, I learned that no matter where someone comes from they can do big things, if they have the right mindset and the determination.
I love basketball because I am terrible at it. Despite my 6’ 0” stature, it seems that my brother stole any natural ability I might have had. Every morsel of skill I have has been worked and paid for with each drop of sweat spilt during the fourth rebound drill, each painful bruise I collect after being caught with a flying elbow, and each ragged breath I take trying to outsprint my teammate.
