Alexis & family along with her High School coach Rob Hummel

Now that Alexis has sign her letter of intent to play basketball for the Blue Hens, she still has a few more thing's that Gthing definitely knows she would want to accomplish. The first one is to try to get back to the GroupV Semifinals were they lost to Williamstown at home, and we are certain that not winning a GroupV Title would be very disappointing for the Indians' this year, who has the size in strength this year to dominate and should be the favorites to win it all.

This past week, I had a lot of fun. On Monday I had a math review for my test. I thought I did great on it. I also had swimming too, we played basketball while in the pool. After school I had workouts from 3-4, the girls and I were trying to form a bond, they are really nice girl's, I was kinda scared to workout with them at first but they were very helpful. When I got finish I went home to study for my math test and English test. On Tuesday I took my math test and passed it with a 99, one point off for not putting a negative sign. I was really proud of my grade, I also took my English test, I scored a 97 on it, I was really happy with my grade.
After school I had workouts from 3-4, we were doing weightlifting and shooting drill's, afterwards I went to the Lady Panthers tryouts which is the team I played for during my middle school year's. Hopefully they will win the Championship for a four time an a row. On Wednesday I had weightlifting and shooting, and we ran the beep test. On Thursday I went to my cousins house and slept over. On Friday I went to the doctors so I didn't go to school, I also went to the Holy Spirit football game with my cousins and little brother, Spirit won 48-0. I also slept over my cousins house that night. On Saturday I went home and helped my mom bake a cake and cake pops. Then my sister came over later on that day and she slept over.

Since high school tryouts are approaching fast, I've been trying to work hard on everything. On Monday I took a test in English on words I got 20/20. In math I got a 98 on my test. I had workouts from 3-4:15 and we did the beep test until level 7. Afterwards I went home and studied for my math test. On Tuesday I had a test in English and I got a 93 on it, then I had swimming but I didn't swim so I had to write a page about what the class did. I had workouts from 3-4, I did jump shots and learning moves. On Wednesday I had workouts from 3-4, I was doing foul shots and weightlifting. 

I bounced my ball outside after school, later on me and my mom went shopping so I could get a outfit for my birthday the next day. On Thursday it was my birthday I turned 15, I really didn't do to much I just went shopping with my mom, me and my friends are going out to eat next weekend if the the weather is nice. On Friday I went to the Holy Spirit game, Spirit won 48-0, after the game I hung out with a few of my friends. On Saturday I went to my cousins dance class, then I went to a basketball game. On Sunday I went to my own basketball game against Wildwood Catholic, even though we lost I still think my team played their best and playing against Kennedy Johnson who plays with the Philadelphia Belles and who will be attending Michigan St. as a freshman next year was a great experience for me and my teammates.

I had a blast this past weekend, On Monday I had workouts from 3-4:15, I worked on my jump shot and foul shots. I did 50 each, I also lifted weights after that I went home in studied for my Language Arts test. On Tuesday I had three test one in math that I got a 91 on which is a B. I was proud of my B because the section we are doing was really hard, In Language Arts I had two, I got a 29 out of 30 on one of them and 100 on the other. At 3-4 I had workouts and I lifted weights then I shot around, I'm trying to learn some new moves so I can step my game up. 

I went to Holy Spirit High School for a Basketball Clinic from 6-8. On Wednesday I didn't go to basketball practice because the power went out at the school, so I went home and practice in front of my house. I work on my dribbling and footwork. On Thursday It was Halloween, I'm Muslim so I don't go trick or treating. I spent the night with my family and watched a movie with my sister. On Friday I went to the Holy Spirit football game against Egg Harbor Township, Spirit won as usual, they are really good.

After the game I had my cousin sleep over, we watched a movie and got on Face Time with other people. On Saturday I went to my brothers football game against Egg Harbor City in Somerspoint, It was for the Conference Championship, They lost 35-6, but they went 7-1 for the regular season. Afterwards I went to Fear Factory with Tahirah, Kahirah, Anaiyah, Myah, and Mataya, we back to do the second part but it wasn't scary at all like the first one was. A big group of us walked to Subway to get something to eat. We all laughed the whole way there, after that I got pick up so could go to Anaiyah house, once I got there we got on Face Time with some friends and ate candy. On Sunday I went home and got dress for my basketball game at my school, we played Absegami High School but since Gami didn't have enough players I played on their team.
