I would play soccer, and I would score 20 goals in the first half of the game, and I have 64 goals at the end of the game. That would be my moment. What’s yours? — Madison Dicely, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

If I were a professional athlete, I would be a rally racer. An amazing moment in my career is in my first race. It would be neck and neck at the finish. He gets a little ahead of me but I catch up. At the finish, I get ahead by a teeny bit and win. That would be my amazing moment in my career. — Dominique Ullrich, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

If I could be a professional athlete, I would be a swimmer. One time that was awesome in my swimming career was, when one of my teammates was being drowned by unconsciousness, I dived down and grabbed her hand and pulled her up. Pretty Cool! — Jara Mumma, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

It’s the 4th quarter, the score 38 to 33. We’re on our 15-yard line and I’m the quarterback. I call a Hail Mary. Hike…the play starts. Nobody’s open. Then my wide receiver jukes his guy. I pass it and it’s a perfect one. “TOUCHDOWN,” boomed the announcer. — Garrett Moore, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

I would play basketball, and my amazing moment would be if I got the ball in the hoop 32 times. — Gabby Messenger, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

Softball pitcher! I was in the last inning, pitching. The crowd was so silent that you could hear your own heart beating. The batter walked up to the place, ready, focused and fierce. I took a deep breath. If I didn’t strike this person out, the other team would score and we would lose. My team would be devastated. “Foul,” yelled the umpire as the pitch flew off the bat. “Foul,” he yelled again. I took one more deep breath. “STRIKE!” he yelled. He was out. We had won. — JoAnne Grosskopf, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

I would like to play NFL football. One game I dived for the ball in the back of the end zone and I caught it one handed. — Jaden Henline, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

I’m a softball player. Two outs. It’s the bottom of the 7th inning. I’m pitching. Bases loaded. We’re up by one. Pitch one…she hits it! It’s foul. Pitch two…strike. Pitch three…strike! She’s out! We win! — McKenna Baker, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

I don’t like sports, but if I were a good golfer, I’d get a par. — Cayden Healy, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

As a pro-lacrosse player, I would make the last goal. The score is tied 7 to 7. One more point and we would win. Halfway down the field someone would pass me the ball. I would shoot and miss with 30 seconds still on the clock. Someone would pass me the ball. I would shoot. I made the last goal to make our team win. Everyone would cheer and clap. We had won the game! — Jordyn Altland, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

I would swim because it’s refreshing and very fun. That’s why I would swim. — Patrick McCullough, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

The sport I would play is field hockey! I would make an amazing goal and win the game. Everyone would yell “Yay” or “Go, Alyssa!” It would be a perfect win. That’s my amazing moment. — Alyssa Conaway, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

If I were a pro athlete, I would be a pro athlete in cheering. A good moment that happened in my pro sports career is when I won a trophy for the best cheerleader. — Mia Christensen, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

This is the X-games. I have to pull off something great. “Jordan Flander,” the loud speakers called. I pulled my BMX bike up and dropped down the quarter pipe. I flew off the ramp and did a double tail whip into a grinding pull and did an icicle grind down it. I got a score of 10 and won first place in X-games BMX!!!! — Jordan Flanders, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

In my baseball experience, I had one amazing experience. I had 99 runs. I ran and touched the base and I got 100 runs. — Everest Robinson, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

If I were a professional football player, I would be on the Pittsburgh Steelers. I would be a left side receiver like Troy Polamalu. It is 27-26 against the Ravens. They’re at the 5-yard line about to get a touchdown. They hike it. I tackle Ray Lewis. There are only two seconds left in the game. It was over. The Steelers have won. Whopee! — Kia Andrews, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

I would play football. It is fun. A great moment would be to get to win the Super Bowl and get the MVP Award. — Trevor Henderson, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

“Go, Go, Go, Go!” shouts the crowd. And Olivia Hanlon wins the race. Everyone shouted and whistled and cheered. If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m a professional track and field star. The biggest moment in my career would have to be this one, winning my first race just barely. Well, bye. I’m off to claim my prize. — Olivia Hanlon, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers

If I were a professional athlete, I would be a cheerleader. The best moments I’ve had so far in cheerleading is getting my running round-off backhand spring tuck. I could never have done it without the support of my friends. — Caylynn Beinhower, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick

It’s the first time my cheerleading squad entered a competition. We go through the routine one last time before it’s our turn. It was perfect except for the last part – the stunts! We only had two weeks to practice the whole routine and every time we tried we failed. The coach mixed us up with different people. They called our names and we were very scared. We stepped out on the mats. One little mistake and my team goes back a level, so far so good. It’s time for the stunts. The crowd is screaming our names and the judges look impressed, time for the stunts. The first one is okay, but the back one is perfect. Everyone in the crowd is cheering! — Grace Couse, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers
