My name is Chrissy Carr and I play basketball for Minnetonka High School and 43 Hoops basketball. Last month I talked about the character part in being an athlete. This month I’m going to talk about going through hardships and turning them into success. Every athlete has a set back.. Injuries happen and not expected.  Last year in the fall of 2014 I tore 2 ligaments in my left ankle trying to split through a trap. I thought it was just a bad sprain and could barley walk but the first question I asked the trainer was “can I play next game?” She told me No,  because I could barely walk. But I didn’t care I wanted to get back out on the court. After sitting out a whole weekend and flying home, my parents decided to take me to a doctor because I still couldn’t walk. The doctor came back with the scans and told me I tore 2 ligaments and that I will be in a cast for a month,  and a boot for a month and a half. I was devastated. When I got my cast on I was motivated to go lift and work on my upper body strength. After that month was up, I started getting on a zero gravity treadmill every morning before school. I always kept in the back of my mind that I was gonna make it seem like I was never hurt and I definitely was not about to come back out of shape.

Keeping your head high is always key with having hardships. When I was in 2nd grade my sister passed away at the age of 4. She was a big part in my life and still is to this day even though she isn’t here. I always make sure that everything I do on the basketball court is for her. My aunt is also a very important person in my life, she was a really good basketball player and when she was on a missions trip, she got a disease and lost all her arms and legs due to wrong medication. I always think when I have it bad that it’s not as bad as some other people and I keep my head up. Never take anything for granted.

As for basketball, I just recently visited and received an Offer from South Carolina. I am planning on going to visit more schools here in the next few months. I am really enjoying my new high school, and new high school teammates and them helping me become a better player. Coach Leah Dasovich has really helped me improve and help me get involved with the team, I really enjoy playing for her. Can’t wait to kick off the season this Saturday against Apple Valley.
This thanksgiving I will be spending a lot of time with my sisters that are coming home from college and spending time with my aunts and uncles.
Until next time…
