That is not a lot compared to how many teams there are in all of college basketball. There are 6 rounds is March madness: Round 1, Round 2, Sweet 16, Elite 8, Final 4 and finally the finals. This year the final 4 was: Gonzaga, North Carolina, South Carolina and Oregon. In the finals it was Gonzaga vs North Carolina and North Carolina won.

Baseball

Hello readers. Today I will be teaching you how to throw and hit a baseball. I recommend these tips for people who are just starting baseball or just want to get a little better at the sport.

Throwing 

When you throw you should First Pick the knee that is closer to your target off of the ground and let your ankle swing around. Then you extend  your foot out to the side that you are facing and almost touch the ground with your toe. (You should have your glove elbow facing your target). Next you stick your foot out to your target and put your foot down. Finally you extend your body forward and throw the ball.

This is about how long you should stride.

Batting

When you are hitting a ball First you should load by sticking your arm at the catcher and bending your knees a little. Then stride about one little step forward. Next you should turn your hips while your hands are still close to your body. Finally when the pitch comes to the plate you extend the bat to the ball and keep turning your hips until you hit the ball.

His eyes are on the ball the whole time and he is extending the bat at the ball.

That is what I think is the best way to throw and hit a baseball. if you have any questions type them in the comment section below.  

My big Ski Accident

A few weeks ago I went skiing in Dear Vally with my dad. It was about 2:00pm in Dear Vally, I was on a cat walk trail witch is where there is a flat trail with little obstacles on the side. Me and my dad were going up a trail on the side of the cat walk we did a few bumps and then My dad came out of the side trail I kept on going. My dad skied about 10 more yards and then waited for me. It took me a few more minutes to find another opening. When I was close to an opening my dad said, “WATCH OUT!” But I heard “COME!” So I came I went off a jump to get back into the cat walk, but before I could turn into the trail… CRASH! I had collided into another person. I flew into the air and then fell to the ground. Are you guts ok I heard my dad and another guy say. “I’m fine.” I said. I was dizzy for a moment but I didn’t think I broke anything. The other guy broke his glasses and my skies fell off. We sat there and talked for a minuet and then we got up and started skiing again. I was  so happy that I didn’t get majorly hurt.
