My favourite sport

This term, Pt England students are learning about Olympics and my goal is to become a star at the national Netball club. So, the story I'm going to share with you is all about my favourite sport. Last term I had the opportunity to try out for my schools netball team. A few days after the trial, the players got chosen to play for the school. I was chosen to represent my school on team 2.  I was also chosen to be the team captain. I felt fantastic! Our first game was very exciting and when we got onto the court, I felt really nervous. When the beep came on to start the game, I felt really shaky.

We started to play, and as the whistle blew I ran as fast as I could to get the ball. The referee wanted me for the coin toss. The ref tossed up the coin and I chose heads and the other one chose tails. It  was heads and lucky for us, I got it so my team and I had the ball. We started as the referee blew the whistle, and I was at centre. When we played I felt nervous because I thought we were going to lose. When we lost the ball I felt upset so then I went hard to try to get  the ball from the other team and  they lost it.  I felt happy that we got the ball and then I passed it to the GS(goal shooter) and then the GS scored a goal. We won,  but it was a close game. The score was 21-19. I felt happy when we won. When we finished we had to say three cheers for the other school and then we had to  shake hands.

Thank you Ramona for editing my work and helping me.
