Football, soccer, golf, water polo, tennis, and lacrosse are all examples of school sponsored sports. Some students, however, wander off the beaten path and play sports not offered by the school. From curling to roller skating, there are many unusual sports that students play.

Reflection

I learned to plan for unexpected changes in a story. This came into play as the nature of the story changed and I had to interview new people. It taught me that journalism is erratic and you have to be ready to change. I would interview more than three people next time.
