ICC is a week full of energy and spirit with the purpose of uniting each grade level while competing for a common goal... the ICC trophy.This year, us sophomores, desired the ICC trophy more than anything. We where willing to do anything to reach our goal, and set ourselves for success. We felt unstoppable, and where, we actually beat the Juniors and got 2nd place.
While watching the boy's soccer game against the juniors I started thinking about how the juniors had a stronger team than ours, that was said to be "invinsible", but still we where wining 2 - 0. WHY? In difference from the other grade levels, we sophomores wheren't only acting like a team, but like a family. I've seen good sportsmanship, and teamwork before; but I had never seen a team that was so supportive to each other.
I watched closely when a player missed a goal, or did a wrong pass, to see the reaction of the rest of the teammates. I was surprised to see that instead of getting mad or frustrated, they where supportive, and helped each other grow. I remember seeing Ernesto surrounded by a lot of people who where masaging his feet so he could keep on playing because he had a cramp. It was amazing how the people who weren't even playing where as involved in the game as the ones who where, just because of the fact that we where all one, we where one team, one grade.
I can confidently say that WE GAVE IT ALL. Everyone was trying their best as hard as they could no matter what. In the crouds, people where cheering their lungs out, as if it where the last day of their lives. I recall people getting tiered and saying "I'm going to be sick I can't scream anymore", and Almudena screaming at them saying, "You can be sick on friday when we win this thing, so until then you'll keep screaming as loud as you can!" I think it's fascinating how we where willing to do practically anything for the victory of ICC. The best thing .... we didn't have the need to bring other teams down, or try to manipulate results; we where better than that, we worried about ourselves, and effectively our effort payed off when the results where said. That's spirit.
So if you ask me, YES, us sophomores did act like a team, in fact we acted like a family, we where United By One Rhythm!
