You take me as I am
Into your new scarred hands
and when I run so far away
you always call me back again
into your open arms
not matter what ive done
amazing grace has found me here
because of what you've done, for me

Fairly a late post I reckon about the first Pol-Ite Bowling Tourney. Past 2 days have been a time of joy and sorrow and it was nerve wrecking as well. The stress level was high, nerves were unending and tears flowed free. Sleep wasn't in abundance as most tossed and turned in the night to get to bed. Girls started at 9am while the boys were in the afternoon.
The first day contained the doubles event, which the girls, personally I felt, did pretty well. All 4 teams finished above the halfway mark. The boys, were fantastic, with James and Raymond taking top spot and the rest finishing in Top 10. Pity for Gerard and Nick (4th spot), they deserved a medal. So did the rest, though only 3 teams would get medals. Well, you can't have it your way. Screams and cheers brought the house down for the boys to pump them up. The rest of the school will always never beat us in cheering.
The second day was devoted to the team. The girls gold medal came down to the match between TP Team 1 and NTU Team 1. Ultimately the best won. Us definetely, hands down. She Na took the bronze for the Ladies Singles. Girls Team 2 fought till the end, missing a bronze by a measly 24 pinfalls and ended up 5th. The lads were again, fantastic. Team 2 took gold (with James taking another medal, silver for Men's Individual, a total haul of 3!) while the Team 1 tried their best. In the end, TP emerged overall school champions, this time beating all the varsity teams flat. I believe now all the varsities are after us, the junior colleges as well as the polytechnics.
I just want to say I'm proud of everyone who played a part in this year's games and I'm very, extremely proud to have been your teammate. To those who are leaving this year, thank you for your friendship and I love you all from the bottom of my heart. To my Team 2 team mates, we will get the medal back next year, no matter what it takes.
Team Temasek, all the way!
