On the night of February 27, the twins were excited as their triple ball team won first place for their school’s Triple Ball competition. They told me that nobody would expect them to won as the practises were not good. The boy team played one day beforehand and won the second place. They didn’t think the girls team could surpass them. But they make it. They posted their blog posts on their own site: Cherryadventure.wordpress.com and Roseadventure.wordpress.com.
This is a good opportunity to help them with good writing. After a few days, I found an old essay from last year’s softball championship and eventually we create the one below.
Triple-Ball Girls Tier 1 Tournament
Daaaang we’re doomed!
Woodroffe Triple Ball team took part in the Ottawa-Carleton Southwestern Region 2 Girls’Tier 1 Junior Triple Ball tournament held on Thursday February, 23, 2017 from 8:30 am to 11:45am at the Confederation High School. It happened a day after the boys at Woodroffe had their competition and came back with a second place medal after losing to Knoxdale Public School.
The team, led by our coach Mr. Hume, is made up of 14 girls from Grade 5 and 6: Adalia, Alice, April, Cherry, Deniz, Erica, Grace, Jaclyn, Laura, Lauren, Raneem, Rose, Sylvie, and Taisiya.
There were four schools at the tournament. Woodroffe Avenue Public School, Broadview Avenue Public School, Knoxdale Public School, and Meadowlands Public School.
We were first up against Knoxdale. It was a really close game, we tied a bunch of times, but at the end, we won with a score of 27-25!
In the second game we faced Broadview public school. Broadview is one of our “rival” schools. They usually win every sport. But today, surprisingly, we won! I am too excited to remember the scores. We actually won Broadview!
Our third game was against Meadowlands. At the end of the game, we were the ones that got 25 points! Now we were guaranteed a medal!
The next match was the finals to determine 1st and 2nd place. We went against Broadview again. It was a really tight game. At one point we were losing 9-14.We kept cheering each other, and we actually ended up winning 25-17! We were all screaming our heads off, because it was our first gold medal in at least three years!
Special thank you to Mr. Hume, again, for training and leading our team to an amazing victory. We were so proud of ourselves!
Another special thank you to Cherry Ke, my wonderful daughter, for editing and revising this script.
