Today we made make belief comix. They had to be about dinosaurs. We e-mailed the comix to ourselves then opened them up. We used powerpoint to convert the image to a Jpeg. Now we can share them on the blog.
I just had my trials for Otago Hatch Cup unfortunately I did not make the A team. But I am going to the B trials tomorrow to play in a tournament in Ashburton. I hope I make that team. I was pretty upset I did not make the A team. I am only 11 and the team is for Under 13, but there's always a silver lining to every thing. I also have the Year 5 and 6 development team as a back up if I don't make the B team. I hope I make either
Two weeks ago I had Otago basketball trails. I got to the Edgar centre ready to trail. When I got there I a number. I was 16.I got a ball and started warming up. When we started we were doing lay ups. I was getting the shots all in. Then we got ready for a game. At the start I was on the bench. When I got on we had the ball I sprinted down the court. I turned around and got the ball and put it in. I was playing really well. After playing non stop for 10 minutes we got ready to hear the results. We sat down he said four people didn’t get in. First he could out the A team. My name was not called out. My heart started pumping. He started calling the B team. I could not hear my name. At the end of the list he called out my name I was so excited. The coach of our team gave us a newsletter saying we had a trip to gore in two weeks. I was so excited.
This weekend and the next I have my Otago hockey trials. They are for Hatch Cup. If I make the team I will be able to go to Albany Auckland for five days to play in a tournament. If I make the development team and I will be able to go to Ashburton and play in a tournament. I am quite confident because I made the year five and six team two years in a row. I really like hockey because it keeps me fit and my dad played it when he was a kid. I get to play with my best friends. I also play Taieri Junior Hockey for my school. I hope I get in the team and if I don’t I will get to trial for the year six team. I hope I get in either.
It was Saturday morning and I had butterflies jumping in my tummy and my nerves were going crazy. I had my weet-bix and milk for a nutritious breakfast. Then it was off to the pool. It was nerve racking standing on the start block. The whistle blows then I hear the “on your marks”. I hold still, and then beep; I was off like a flash into the water swimming as fast as I can. I had so many things going round my head. I am now on the home straight to the end of the heart racking race. I was relieved that the race was over at that stage but I still had 8 more to go. I got my first silver that weekend in 50 back and a bronze in my 100 free. I got into the Adam and Eve relay. By Courtland
