Brazil
Joe Dabo- This student is a very vocal individual in which he likes to have his opinion be heard. He most
commonly has to have the last word in every discussion. In terms of skill and fitness levels, he is not the most
highly trained in these areas, but still can perform a variety of different physical actions at an experienced
level. During class, he is frequently off-task fooling around by himself because he does not really have any
other friends in the class. Regardless, he will most likely make solid contributions for his team in tournament
play.

Vivian Degrazio- This student is introverted in that she is very silent around everybody except for her peer
group. This is a critical aspect because one of her best friends is in the class, which is who she will normally
work with. It is worth noting that she is very knowledgeable in relation to the content that is presented. Her
work ethic in class spans well beyond that of any classmate. She is of moderate skill and fitness levels based
on these efforts since she does not play any sports outside of school. The input that she will make on her team
with respect to performance should most likely be one who is not going to be the best player, but makes the
opposing team work due her ability to limit mistakes, especially those for which are mental.

Angelo Stephanopoulus- This student has an arrogant attitude about his athletic ability. He plays on the varsity
soccer and baseball teams, where he is merely a role player. It is common to hear him make comments about a
sense of entitlement over the other classmates because of his active background. This is very possibly the
reason with as to why he is either late or often skips class. Although he may not be the best performer on his
school teams, he is of much higher skill and fitness levels than most of his peers. On his squad, he should be a
very critical contributor based on his athletic participation.

Jonathan Dewitt- This student is a really outgoing individual within the class, where he is very well-liked by
others. He is friendly with pretty much every classmate, which is why it is a regular occurrence to see him in a
conversation with one of them. In fact, he is almost a natural leader because of his ability to establish
relationships with other people. He demonstrates a good understanding of the material that is presented in the
class, but is of a lower skill level in regards to executing it. With these attributes, he may not be a vital asset on
the court, though will be a major component for making sure that everyone on the team is doing what they are
supposed.

Farrah Sermon- This student is very lazy when it comes to having to perform any physical activity. She is
more focused on ensuring that her appearance is intact rather than getting sweaty. During any practice of skills
that transpires within a class period, she and her other friends will usually stand off to the side and converse
with one another. This is the major reason with as to why she is of very low skill and fitness levels in which
can be related to that of lower grade learners. It is expected that her performance throughout the season is not
going to produce any major gains for the team because she will be too lazy to participate.

Roxanne Love- This student has some anger problems for which are sometimes exhibited during class. These
sudden bursts of screaming, kicking, and hitting are normally directed at herself due to poor execution of tasks.
Her home life is not very good, which causes her to induce these actions. She does not really have any friends
for whom are classmates, so she likes to isolate herself from others when practicing content. The skill and
fitness levels in that she possesses are slightly better than average in relation to her other female peers. It is due
to this attribute with as to why her role on the team will be essential to her teams success based on the
execution that she exhibits in the season.



10

Russia
Nadia Govani- This student is always focused on achieving any material that is new to her by carrying out
conduct that can be classified as exemplary. In other words, she can merely be termed as a perfectionist based
on her exuberance to reach peak performance in every facet of the course. She has three other friends within
the class in which they all compete against each other to see who will get the best marks. Her skill and fitness
levels can be simply categorized as moderate because she does not have an extensive background in athletics.
With that being said, she will be a key aspect for her team in light of the fact that her desire to succeed will
probably be the fuel behind her execution of skills.

Nathan Sparks- This student does not seem to care about anything in which is presented in class. He basically
only attends the necessary amount of meeting periods in order to get a passing grade since it is a required
course. This is the reason with as to why it is a usual occurrence to see him skip for multiple days in the span
of any given week. He does not really have any friends for whom are classmates, instead his peer groups
consists of many individuals who do not attend the school. With reference to his skill and fitness levels, he is
marginally better than average because of prior involvement in multiple sports. It is not expected for him to
make major contributions for his team, seeing as he probably will not have the desire to even want to be
playing in the season at all.

Kelly Rumspringer- This student is very active to the point where she constantly needs to be moving around or
else she tends to get jittery. It is due to this persona in as to why she is involved in many different clubs and
organizations at the school. She knows everybody within the class very well, but is not friends with them based
on the fact that they get annoyed with her tendencies. Her skill and fitness levels are very low due to her
distaste for athletics in general, but works hard in class. It will be a major bonus for her team if she happens to
perform well in the season because she will not be viewed as a key player.

Trevon McKnight- This student is extremely talented in regards to the abilities for which he possess. He plays
only varsity basketball, where he is considered their star of the team. During class, it is frequent to see him
take breaks due to the fact he already has the essential knowledge to perform the concepts presented. His
friends within the class make up both groups of the other superior athletes and the girls for whom exhibit
extreme laziness. As expected, he is of high-caliber skill and fitness levels that very few peers can compare
with. He will have to take on a heightened role on the team based on how many believe that his play can reach
an elevation of prominence.

Ashley Sadler- This student is rather reserved in terms of how she conducts herself. She has one other friend in
the class that she only really talks with. Her interest in the material that is brought forth in the course is not
high, so she sometimes will tend to give off an attitude for which constitutes as though she does not care. It is
this demeanor as to why she has low skill and fitness levels, where she struggles to execute some of the more
basic motions. Her performance throughout the season will be expected to have little impact on how the team
does.

David Walker- This student displays such fantastic character in reference to helping others within the class
attain prosperity in content. He plays on the varsity soccer, hockey, and lacrosse teams as an individual who is
simply their for his leadership qualities. He has one other friend within the class that he has known for years
since they are neighbors. In skill and fitness levels, he is average because he does possess the capacity to
perform many skills proficiently. For the season, his performance will be important because of how he has an
underlying ability to provide his team with a major boost in respect to his sports experience.


11

Mexico
Adam Fozelli- This student has a very consistent poise in that he is very straightforward in how he feels about
the different content that is introduced. His work ethic is one in which cannot be rivaled by any other peer,
where he simply does what is told of him in a manner that is highly effective. He has two other friends within
the class in which he commonly works with when practicing material. In reference to skill and fitness levels,
he is definitively better than average based on how he exhibits a sense of determination to ultimately master
the concepts that are introduced. His effect on the team will be crucial in how well they will be able to do
during the season if his teammates follow his lead for how he conducts himself on a daily basis.

Jennifer Edenbaum- This student exhibits an attitude as though everyone must revolve around her needs. She
has no ambition to want to perform any of the material presented in the course. It is an often occurrence when
she and her three other friends in the class do not participate in any of the tasks that they are expected to
perform in the lesson by standing off to the side. This helps to provide an explanation as to why her skill and
fitness levels are very low, which due to her frustration about this quality is why she decides not to engage in
this physical activity. Her performance during the tournament will be an unexpected bonus if she executes
something where an outcome that yields even remotely positive results transpires.

Fei-Long Chen- This student is always striving to accomplish a new form of expertise that will enhance his
performance. His temperament is guided by distinct morals and values that his family has instilled in him
which stress the importance of success. This helps to explain why he and his three other friends within the
class compete against each other to determine who achieves better marks. His skill and fitness levels are
among some of the highest in the class because of his desire to be a highly decorated scholar. For his team,
they are going to need him to make vast contributions in their games to most likely experience prosperity in
the season.

Xavier Abouakar- This students charisma is that of which likes to fool around in order to have fun. He likes to
carry out actions that are against the expectations that the school sets out for its learners, explaining why he is
normally having to deal with administration. He does not have any friends within the class, which illustrates
that his disruptive conduct may be in an effort to seek the attention of his peers. His skill and fitness levels are
moderate, but could be far better if he maybe stayed on task more frequently. It is very possible that he is able
to be a factor in which provides his team with valuable support during the season depending on the focus that
he brings.

Josh Redas- This student is deemed as eccentric by his other peers. He does not assimilate very well with these
individuals because they do not share the same interests as one another, where his love for memorabilia that is
associated to younger children is seen as strange. It is due to this reason with as to why he does not have any
friends within the class. The skill and fitness levels for which he possesses are some of the lowest in relation to
all of his classmates. His role on the team will most likely be to establish a base of performance that is not
detrimental to their success.

Stacy Juckinski- This student is designated as one who simply does whatever is asked of her. She never
complains or puts forth a lack of effort, but does not exceed any of the requirements for which each student
must meet in order to pass the course. The amount of friends that she has in the class account for two other
peers, where they all keep to themselves in relation to the other classmates. Her skill and fitness levels can be
designated as moderate due to her performance only meeting bare minimum conditions that are mandated. On
her team, it will be of significance if she is able to display a solid form of execution throughout the season with
respect to these qualities to put them in a better position to do well.


12

Japan
Derek Ellridge- This student is one of the most well-known athletes from around the region. He plays on the
varsity football, basketball, and baseball teams, where he is one of the best players on all of them. His friends
for whom are in the class consist of the group of other athletes and girls that usually do not participate in the
lessons activities. His skill and fitness levels are that of which are extremely high compared to most of his
peers and is the main reason behind the cockiness that he regularly exhibits. It is expected that the influence
he is going to have on his team will be major because of his immense involvement in athletics.

Regina Mellderp- This student has made significant strides in her execution of the content introduced. The
attentiveness in that she has displayed when practicing the tasks incorporated into the lessons has been
beneficial in why this occurrence has transpired. Her three friends within the class have done a great job not
distracting her in order to make this transformation become a reality. With this change, she has both skill and
fitness levels that are just above average, which were previously much lower. This is a huge bonus for her team
because she can now make a much greater impact during the season with her newly enhanced performance.

Thomas Hedwick- This student is an aggressive individual with reference to athletics. He plays on the varsity
football team, where he has been kicked out of numerous games for many unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.
The friends for whom he has within the class are all of the other superior male athletes. His skill and fitness
levels are pretty high, but probably should be better; however, it is his competitiveness that carries his
execution of the material to elevations in which produce a competence in these activities. For his team, it is
essential that this intensity continues during the season to bring his performance up, but only to the point
where he is in control of his emotions.

Elizabeth Invesco- This student has shown signs of achievement in concepts, but does not put the effort in to
maintain this execution. The reason being for this transgression is that her peer group influences her to avoid
partaking in such action because by her doing well in the course is not socially acceptable. Instead, these
friends, who are also in the class, will normally stand off to the side when practicing activities of the lesson,
with her sometimes joining them. Her skill and fitness levels are that of which are above average, but could
exceed this performance if she works harder in the course. She will be an interesting player to focus on
throughout the season because of the fact she has yet to reach her ceiling in the material presented.

Quinn Regis- This student is probably the most intelligent individual within the course in relation to its
content. He basically knows all of the basic concepts, strategies, and tactics for which can be implemented to
experience success in each unit that has been presented. He has two other friends within the class, with each of
them always having high involvement in the material that is in focus. His skill and fitness levels are moderate,
but his value is in analyzing situations related to what is being explained is a vital aspect that can pay off major
dividends in order to attain prosperity in skills. He will be a crucial asset to his team due to his ability arrange
play formations based on how their opponent is performing.

Patricia Gugendolf- This student does their best to attain the content that is introduced, but strangely shows
little improvement in this category of execution. Her aspirations are to demonstrate a certain aptitude in
regards to this material so that she exhibits proficiency in all of the required subject areas that the institution
provides. The motive behind this goal is because of her three other friends within the class that challenge one
another to see who can receive the best scores from the teacher. Her skill and fitness levels are that of which
are very low, which explains why she may be struggling to boost her performance. With her work ethic, she
could very well, out of nowhere, experience success during the season.



13

Cameroon
Darren Goody- This student has the potential to be an extremely good athlete. However, he has devoted his life to his job,
where he works as a mechanic at a local auto shop. For friends in the class, he has two others in which he normally hangs
around with to complete tasks together. His skill and fitness levels are better than average, though could be outstanding if
he was a little bit more attentive in class. With that being said, he is a very hard worker when it comes to his interests,
which if he is able to harness the same kind of energy during the season, then the impact that he will make on his teams
success could be crucial.

Jessica Underwood- This student does not display any motivation to want to take part in physical activity at all. It is a
common occurrence for her not to be in attendance. Her friend group within the class consists of the three other girls that
are commonly not involved in any of the activities in which they are asked to perform. This is the major reason as to why
her skill and fitness levels are very well below for what they should be, in terms of the experience that she has in taking
the course. Her team will most likely hope for the fact that the performance she carries out during the season at least does
not seriously harm their chances to do well.

Jose Rodriguez- This student is a stellar athlete, but has behavioral issues in which set him back. He was a member of the
varsity basketball and baseball teams until he got suspended for getting into a fight with another student. His friends in the
class were all of the other male individuals who play sports and the group of girls that do not engage in course content,
though they are now starting to drift apart after since he no longer plays on these squads anymore. It is critical to note that
his skill and fitness levels are superior to those held by the majority of his peers, where he is in the same category as his
other classmates who are apart of athletic teams at the school. In regards to his team, his performance during the season
will be very intriguing to observe based on the fact he has the capability to greatly have an influence on how well they can
do when focused on the tasks at hand rather than what is going on outside of the institution.

Cao-Ming Yang- This student does everything he can to put himself in a position where he is not only better than his other
peers in athletics, but in academics as well. He is driven by his three other friends within the class to achieve a level of
success to that of what is better than theirs. It should be noted though that his mastery in the content is scattered with
reference to how he is advanced in some areas, while, at the same time, inept in others. As a result, his skill and fitness
levels are moderate because he has shown to be very inconsistent in his execution of the material within the course. This is
why his performance during the season could quite potentially play the greatest role in how his team ultimately is able to
compete with the others to be considered a major force to be reckon.

Gary House- This student is one of the most reserved individuals in relation to how he conducts himself. He rarely talks to
other students due to the fact he is scared about certain aspects for which he is unfamiliar with, which since he is not the
most communicative to begin with, his peers, as a result, fall under this category. It is quite clear that he does not have
very many friends within the class because of this attribute. His skill and fitness levels are quite low based on how many
of the activities used to practice course content are cooperative. This then makes him uncomfortable when completing
them, which then negatively affects his execution. The performance that he is expected to display during the season is
probably not going to be of a high significance, but the setting that he will be forced to perform in will help him to interact
more with his other classmates.

Julie OReilly- This student is one of the most energetic persons within this group of classmates. She is very forceful with
respect to how she carries out the content that is presented in the course. It is important to acknowledge that she is a part of
the varsity volleyball, basketball, and lacrosse teams at the school. For friends within the class, it seems as though she is
generally really well-liked by pretty much everybody because of her much-known athletic ability. Her skill and fitness
levels are well beyond that of any of her female classmates, where she is just below that of the male athletes. Her team will
be counting on her to exhibit an exceptional performance based on the fact that she is the only player on the team that is
predicted to make significant contributions during the season.



14

Team Selection Process

The teams will be arranged with the teacher selecting students to be captains of each
squad based on their superior leadership skills for which they have displayed in class. These
learners will then meet with the instructor individually to choose the other members of their
team. It is important to note that prior to any captain attending this conference, the teacher will
arrange the other students in groups numbered from one to five. This means that those who are
classified as a one will correlate to the highest skilled and fit peers in the class so that this
numerical progression ends with those who are classified as fives being that of the least of these
two qualities. Each captain will then be told that they must pick one person from every
categorization of their classmates. By the end of this procedure, all of the squads will, as a result,
be made up of six learners whose skill and fitness levels vary based on their performance from
what they have exhibited in previous class periods.

Traditional Rules of Volleyball

A team can only make contact with the ball 3 times before hitting it over net.
No player can make consecutive contact with the ball 2 times.
The ball cannot be caught or carried over the net.
Every sequence of play must start with a serve.
Points are scored when the ball touches the ground on opponents side,
opponent hits the ball out of bounds, opponents make more than 3 contacts
with the ball, opponents hit ball so that it touches the ceiling, light, or rafter
above other teams side of court, or an opponents serve does not go over the
net.
The lines marking the court are in bounds.
A ball can contact any part of players body.
A servers body can never cross the end line when completing this action.
Serves that make contact with net but go over are considered legal.
After every point scored, the team that achieved this feat must rotate their
positions by 1 person in the clockwise direction.
The positions on the court consist of 3 individuals in the front row and 3
individuals in the back row, which use the 10-foot line as the margin
separating the 2 areas.
The players on the court that are located behind the 10-foot line are not
allowed to hit the ball over the net from in front of this court marking.
The method of rally scoring is used to gain points.
A match is won by winning 2 out of 3 games.
The games are played to 25; however, all teams must win by two points, so
gameplay will continue until a team has reached this margin regardless of
the score.

Culminating Event

Skill Challenge
The team with highest point value after each mini-game is the winner of the skill challenge (1st Place= 10 Points;
2nd Place= 8 Points; 3rd Place= 5 Points; 4th Place= 3 Points; and 5th Place= 1 Points).

Hoop Service:
Description- The teams will be arranged in a straight line behind the endline on the right side
(location where serves occur) with one ball each. On the other side of the court beyond the net
will be 5 different hula hoops scattered on the ground within the boundaries with a piece of paper
with a number from 1 to 5 in it. The challenge will begin with the teacher calling out a different
number for each try taken by the students whose turn it is to execute the motion; where they must
then attempt to serve the ball so that it lands in the hula hoop that was expressed. Each squad will
take part in the activity on their own home court. It is also worth mentioning that only one
individual can serve at a time, and will be given 3 chances to accomplish the feat. If a player is
able to successfully serve the ball into the correct hula hoop, then their team will be awarded
with 3 points. The scorekeepers are responsible for tracking the amount of points their team has
obtained, statisticians will need to record the amount of points their teammates have secured, and
the publicists will report all of this data to the teacher. The team with the most points at the end
of 15 minutes will be declared as the winner, which will add to their total score count towards
winning the entire skill challenge.

Bump It Up:
Description- The teams will be spread out throughout the gymnasium and arranged in a circle
with each player facing 10 feet apart from one another. Using one ball, an individual will throw
it up in the air to one of their teammates. It will then be that persons job to forearm pass it to a
different teammate within the formation, who will then attempt to complete the same sequence
of actions. The group of players will work to execute this progression for 15 times in a row
without the ball touching the ground. Each team will be told to count out loud how many times
they have successfully forearm passed the ball to each other until they have reached the
aforementioned value, which will correlate to them scoring a point. The scorekeepers will be
liable for knowing how many points their team has scored, the statisticians will document how
many forearm passes were accomplished by the players, and the publicists will then report all of
this information to the teacher. This challenge will last for 15 minutes with the team for which
has scored the most points at the end of this time being declared as the winner; thus, increasing
their score count for the skill challenge altogether.

43

Swishing The Spike:
Description- The teams will be positioned in a straight line behind the free throw line facing
across from their own basketball hoop with just one ball. The first player in the line will then
spike the ball on the ground in an effort for it to land in the basket when it bounces back up. Each
individual on the squad will be given 5 attempts to attain this stunt. For every basket in which is
scored, 1 point will be awarded to the team that performed the action. It should be mentioned
that only 1 individual can execute this action at a time, which will be dictated by the order that
the players are positioned within their line. The scorekeepers will have to keep track of how
many points their team has scored, the statisticians will archive the points that were earned by
each of their teammates, and the publicists will then convey all of these statistics to the teacher.
The team that has achieved the most points after 15 minutes of play will be declared as the
winner, elevating their score count for the whole skill challenge.

PE Volleyball
Champion
Inaugurated
During the annual
physical education
volleyball season, a new
school champion was
crowned. Cameroon beat
Brazil in the
championship in a fierce
battle between two
heavyweight teams. In fact,
the game was tied with a
little bit under one minute
left to play. The final score
ended up being 25 to 23.
Cameroon was led by the
play of senior Julie OReilly,
who had 3 aces, 10 forearm
passes, 17 sets, 10 kills, and
11 digs. After the game was
over she was quoted as
saying, This is one of the
most surreal feelings that I
have ever had! She
proceeded to compliment
all of her teammates for
putting her in the position
to accomplish this feat. For
Brazil, it was a difficult loss
for senior Angelo
Nevertheless, the Best Player
Sportsmanship Award was granted to
David Walker on Russia for his

demonstrating of exceptional
behavior. The Most Improved Player
Awards was given to Josh Redas on
Mexico for his display of phenomenal
participation. And finally, the Most
Valuable Player Award (MVP) was
handed out to none other than
OReilly for her outstanding
contributions. A pep rally will be held
on Friday afternoon at one oclock to
honor the school champions.

In regards to the entire season,
physical education teacher Nicholas
Plourde called it a success. He talked

explained, The
amount of excitement
brought out by the
learners made it a
very special scene to
be a part of. In each
class for which games
were being played,
the students came
dressed up in their
team colors, created
posters, and screamed
chants that are
rumored to have been
heard from the
adjacent science wing.
Regina Mellderp on
Japan claims, It was
one of the most
enjoyable organized
sports experiences
that I have ever had in
my life! Who would
have thought that it
would come in

is definitely gonna sting for
a while, I mean it was the
closest I ever came in all my
years here to being the last

sure. An awards ceremony

nothing but positive
from that of the
student body as well
as faculty. The plan
for the future is to
continue to
implement this sport
education model
within the physical
education
environment because
administrators
believe that it will
motivate the learners
to continue in taking
part in athletics
outside of the
classroom. The hope
behind this proposal
is that it will aid the
youth in town to live a
healthier lifestyle
going into the future.
