My favorite sports memory/moment/event is……. being down by one in Varsity playoffs, the bottom of the 5th with one out and getting to strike and throw them to end the inning. We were able to get two guys on and I hit a bases-clearing triple. We played a lockdown defense to hold a 2-run lead and advanced to a championship series. My team went on to end a 17-year championship drought for our school.
