Favorite memory from being involved in co-curricular activities is…: During one of my junior year practices, we were scrimmaging against the other half of my team and I got the ball and shot a three. One problem though, my arc was so high it hit a pole that connects the basketball hoop to the ceiling and everyone was wondering where the ball went.
