My best blog post was named “Liberty Center Track Success”. This was my best blog post because it included a good story with valuable information about a sport that is actively succeeding in the school right now. This blog post had good paragraphing, good writing content, and no spelling or grammar issues.
- I enjoyed blogging and podcasting because it gave me a way to express myself using the internet. I also got the opportunity to look at some of my class mate’s blogs and see what is going on in their lives.
- In this class I learned to make a website, use good social network writing skills, and write about things I enjoy using proper internet writing to public viewers.
- I can see myself continuing to update my blog because it is a pretty fun, easy way to connect with classmates, and write enjoyable blog posts.
The Liberty Center Track and Field team competed in the 2013 Lamberson Invitational this weekend in Montpelier, Ohio. To start the day off, the weather was slightly cold with little wind. The rest of the day, the weather was pretty good, not too hot, not too cold. There were 14 teams at this meet. The girl’s team had a very successful day finishing 2nd place as a team. The boys team also had a good day finishing in 3rd place as a team with only being one point behind 2nd place.
This next week is the 2013 NWOAL Track and Field Championships in Archbold, Ohio. The prelims will be held on May 14, 2013 and the finals for most of the events will be held on May 17, 2013. The Lady Tigers are looking to repeat as NWOAL team Champions with some good veteran talent, as well as a very strong distance crew led by Brittany Atkinson (sophomore), Kelly Haubert (senior), Paige Chamberlain (junior), and Olivia Kundo (freshman). The Lady Tigers 4×800 meter relay is run by these four girls and they are heavy favorites to win this event after obtaining now the second fastest time in the state of Ohio so far. The 4×800 meter relay for the Tiger Boys team is a favorite as well, being run by Henry Elling (junior), Joseph Seedorf (senior), Jason Hadley (sophomore), and Cameron Weaks (junior). This boys relay team is also a favorite for this event after obtaining the fastest time in there Regional meet and seventh fastest time in the state of Ohio.
The meet this week should be an exciting one with some nice weather, talented new runners, and maybe even some broken records. Stay tuned to find out exactly how this meet goes. The team champions this year may surprise you so it should be a good one. Please come out to the track in Archbold, Ohio on Friday May 17, 2013 to support the Tigers.

The NBA Playoffs are finally here with some good first-round matchups. I personally am a Miami Heat fan. Now, I know that you may think that I probably just hopped on the band-wagon or something but, I actually have been a Miami Heat fan since I was in the third grade. I started to become a fan when I saw Dwayne Wade play and I thought he was amazing. Heat fans, including myself are going to be cheering while watching as the Miami Heat face the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the play-offs.
The Heat have a few tough teams that may stand in their way of getting another NBA Championship including the New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Chicago Bulls. The Heat are like a train flying in hot into the playoffs with a 41-2 record over the last 43 games. Who will beat the strong Miami Heat team this year?
The Liberty Center boys and girls teams have finally started their season and lets just say, there are some very high goals for this years group. The girls team is very talented overall with talented pole vaulters, sprinters, distance runners, and throwers. The girls team was NWOAL league champions last season and are looking for a repeat. The boys team got last place in the league last year but are looking very strong so far this season with some promising team places at The Liberty Benton relays and the tri meet with Archbold and Evergreen.
The Tigers have three meets next week. Tuesday’s meet is at home with the visiting Bryan Golden Bears. Thursday’s meet is at Springfield with about six other Division 2 and 3 schools. Saturday’s meet is The Liberty Center Invitational, there are about 10 schools all together that are expected to be attending this meet. So, with two home meets for the Tigers, they are hopeing that you can come out to the spring sports complex this week if you can to support your team. Go Tigers!
The madness continues with only 16 teams remaining. Florida Gulf Coast (Dunk City) is the first 15 seed to ever make it to the sweet 16 in the history of a 64 team NCAA men’s tournament. The team looks to continue their success witht their next opponent being The University of Florida. LaSalle is another underdog that has emerged early in the tournament. The team was seeded as a 13 seed but has upset two different teams and have made it to the Sweet 16 as well. The team has the quickness and defense to hold their own in this tournament but all of this will be put to the test as they face Wichita State University (a 9 seed) in their next mathup who has really turned some heads as of late with great shooting and a talented coach. We will se how all of this unfolds as games continue to be played this week and all this weekend.
