    time doing the workout. I was the only person on the team that actually ran long mileage before basketball season. I was in a sport called cross country, and all we did in that sport was run long distances on roads or golf courses. So I was used to running hard during practice and was up with the seniors when running our workout. Our basketball season went like that until our first game against a school named Harding County that took place in our home gym. Their team had players that had tall players that shot the basketball over us all four quarters, but we made good passes so the game was evenhanded. We lost the basketball game, but before our varsity was going to warm up, one of them stopped me and told me good job. He was one of the seniors that I ran with at practice for awhile, but he just now started talking to me. When the varsity played their basketball game, the guy who stopped me, seemed to be one of the preponderance players on the court that night. After the basketball games, me and him starting talking to each other and texting each other,his name was Kyzier, and we became the closest friends. Month after month went by and it made me think of the decisions I were making at what I could do to change them. When I finally understood that my immutable problems that I faced daily could be changed, it turned my life around for the greater good. Our team took a school bus to a town named Lemmon where we played a basketball game in their home gym. We played a even…

    time being though. About two weeks into the season Kobe broke his wrist and his arm while trying to do a layup. This flat out demoralized us and we then had to figure out what to do. With the first part of the season being indoor we had a little more flexibility on what we could do. This meant for the first two meets we ran the 4x800 filled with different people. The coaches were trying to figure who could run the race so we could compete in it. Those races were worthless though because none…

    standing watching the puck drop. It’s as if they had a mind of their own and it was out of my control. My stomach felt like it was going to just quit on me and I was unable to get rid of the butterflies. I paused and lifted my head to see the other team already dominating in our zone. These were the games we lived for, catholic versus public schools. There is no better feeling in the world than knowing that as a public school, you can skate and compete with the catholic schools. One year…

    Students in a varsity sport should be exempt from gym. Varsity athletes have their sport almost everyday after school, and on the weekends. They play a sport for all 4 seasons with intense and vigorous training. By already being on a Varsity sports team you are already in shape and have to exercise outside of school.
