“Before today, we’ve been playing Emily sort of out of her usual position to fill the spots we needed with our injuries. But Emily is so versatile that you can play her in a number of different positions and she will do whatever you need,” said Coach Stone. “We needed her to score. Her first goal showed a lot of skill and the second showcased her maturity in her younger years to be as composed as she was with that finish.” Together, both Cubbage and Conway set marks of their own as rookies by recording individual firsts – first multi-scoring game and first-career shutout,
I have never seen her so excited to go to school and show-off all her hard work, time, and effort she has put in this project. For three days, the judges kept all the science experiments to see who would win 1st place. I had the honor of picking her up from school when they were announcing the winner of the science fair and you would not believe who won, everybody did. Sadly in today’s world everybody is a winner and everybody works just as hard as the next. This communist line of thinking is doing way more damage than good to our American spirit.
I am an incoming freshman and also a recruit of Pat Hanlon’s for the 2011-2012 Oswego State Women’s Volleyball team. When making my decision for which college to attend, I was inspired by everything that the team had to offer. The team striked me as so welcoming, they had an enormous amount of chemistry while playing together, and were truly amazing ,enthusiastic individuals. After seeing one game, my decision to attend Suny Oswego was finalized. My mom and I attended a match last fall season and I felt such an amazing vibe from the girls.

This was also the same concept when it came to sports at BCHS. Brownstown was always known for great volleyball, football, and boys’ basketball teams. These teams always went far into the tournament every year in strive to win a state championship title. The same was not known for the girls’ basketball team to achieve.
Reid Lundeen Miss Streza English III September 19, 2013 David vs. Goliath On September 12th, 2013, Dana Hills Football had one of the best performances in the history of the school. The game was held at Dana Hills, against its hated rival, San Clemente. Dana Hills (0-2) on the season heads in to this game thinking, if they do not get a victory in this contest, their season could be downhill from here. Meanwhile, on the other side of the spectrum is San Clemente. San Clemente (2-0) on the season comes in to this game with a lot of emotion.
The second quarter begins in 1988. Monica and Quincy, still friends, are the respective leaders of their high school teams. Scouts have clearly taken notice of Quincy, and many see him as one of the top prospects in the country. His popularity is evident on and off the court; he becomes a heartthrob to several girls who attend his school. Monica, on the other hand, struggles with her fiery emotions on the court.
So determination and dedication is going through these young women’s mind as they line up on the front line. When they hear the sound of the whistle the young women bolt off the line. Sprinting to the half-court mark trying to make something more out of this practice knowing that this will be the last practice before the passionate game that will determine their life. As they reach down to touch the half court line a bolt
I now have been invited by two colleges and counting to play on their soccer team, which is amazing, and could take the future debt out of my hands. Around the fall of 2007 I met my best friend. Little did I know she would be the most annoying, aggravating, and goofy person I would ever meet, but would stand by me through everything. She and I will be friends for a lifetime. Around
