    Everyone loves summer, but the rain seems to be a constant problem in this state this year, and when it’s not raining, it’s at least in the high 90s.
    With this bipolar weather, there are chances you get to play outside or you don’t get to play outside.

    Does anyone know the real meaning of encouragement?
    I say this because everyone needs encouragement every day. The definition, according to Google, is the action of giving someone support, confidence, or hope.
    Now you’re probably wondering why I’m writing about encouragement since this is the sports section. I am getting to that.

    If I ever had the chance to interview any player from the US Women’s National Soccer team I would probably freak all the way out because look how far they’ve gotten in the World Cup!
    They get to play for the title, OUR women’s team is playing for the World Cup title. Yes, I purposely repeated myself because that is so exciting, and as a soccer fan, of course I’m going to be excited.

    Well, it's been an eventful week for the girls All-Star teams. 

    I do want to congratulate both teams for the hard work they've been putting forth this season, from playing in the ridiculous humidity, to the pouring rain.

    You hear about wanting a “summer body” during the winter months quite a lot, and now that it’s summer, people are either working hard, or hardly working on that.
    But don’t focus on the body.
    Focus on feeling great, just being healthy and exercising.
    I love it though. I love seeing people workout. Even if it’s just walking around the track at the park, people are getting in a good workout.

    As a kid who used to play ball, championship week has not changed a single bit. It’s just as crazy as it was when I played. Kids screaming from the dugout, and the parents yelling and jumping in the stands.

    It’s little league baseball, softball, and tee-ball season, and the park is full of it. Every night a crowd of fans supports the kids, which is great, so keep up the great work, fans!

    Well, people of Marion County, school is officially over. What a relief! Now I wonder if some of the parents are relieved or if they’re freaking out because their child is going to be home all summer. I know I wrote a column about finals and the students moving up a grade and wishing them luck. Now I can officially say I am a Marion County High School graduate and you students are now a grade higher!

    The past couple of weekends I’ve had the opportunity to attend the state tennis tournament and the state track meet, and other than state basketball, I had never been to a state event. It has been the most interesting experience for me, a good experience.
