We work hard,
Get better,
And learn.
Practices get more intense
Coaches yell,"Skate harder!" during drills
Big circle, figure eight, and half moon
Unforgiving when we hit the ice
Every player works as part of our team
And focuses more
Hearts race
Adrenaline rush peaks to its highest
Our muscles ache
But knowing what's to come at state'
The victory will be sweet.

Favorite Quote:
Where there is desire, there is gonna be a flame,
Where there is a flame someone's bound to get burned.
Just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die,
You've got to get up and try.

Amazing poem I love reading sports be described creatively with a poetic flow- you did a fantastic job:)
