Basketball

On Sunday the 19th of March my team and I Abbey Lakers went to Inagh to play a game.

The first game was so close. We played Kilkishen and we won by 10-8 I only played one match because i fell and hurt my foot. At 12:15 we had lunch our next match was at 1:15. While we waited we played hide and seek. Finally the rest of the team went to play Gort. They won 20-0 so we won and then at 4:00 we played bluestars and it was so close the score was 34-32 they were one basket away from us because each basket counts as two.

 We were so happy that we won and we got gold medals and a plague. After word we had crisps and drinks I had fanta

It was a great day

Horse Riding

 

On Sunday 12th of February to March 17th every Sunday and sometimes Friday my pony Hardingville Lighting Strikes also known as James and I were competing in an under 15s showjumping competition. I was the youngest competitor in the competition because I am only 10. The first week the jumps were 80cm high the second week they were 85cm the third, fourth, fifth and sixth week they were 90cm. Every week me and James got 5 points with our double clear. The last week I was the most nervous because I knew if I got clear I would come first. As soon as I jumped one fence I was fine so I kept going and at the end I got a big cheer when I got off I heard someone announcing the results when I heard my name for first I was so happy. I won a trophy, medal, rug for my pony and an Easter egg.
