IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: How do you view your participation in sports and extra-curricular activities? Is it a right or is it a privilege? Anytime you are part of a school team, your participation is a privilege you have earned. There are rules and guidelines that you must follow or what you have earned can be taken away. There are consequences for bad actions and bad decisions. In light of two high school girls basketball seasons being cancelled (for girls and fans losing their composure and fighting during the contest), let it be a lesson to all. Sports participation is a privilege and this privilege can be and should be taken away in extreme cases where teams and fans lose focus on the number one priority of any high school sporting event, sportsmanship!

Honoring the Tradition of the GHS Mascot: On February 20th, prior to the home GHS Boys Basketball game vs. LaPorte, Goshen Community Schools will host an open house to honor our proud tradition at the Goshen Redskins.

If you do not feel comfortable ordering online, phone orders will be taken by calling Lori Martin at GCS central office at (574) 533-8631. All proceeds from these shirts will be designated to supplement the costs of the new display case to honor the Redskin mascot.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: After 12 seasons and winning 2 Super Bowls, New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin retired last week. His outgoing speech to the media was how deeply he felt about the importance of fostering team chemistry. Regardless of what sport you play or at what level you are participating, this quote about team and unity will apply to you. “My contention is there is a higher ground, a greater purpose. That purpose is team, it is the team concept. Winning, losing, playing hard, playing well, doing it for each other, winning the right way. That’s what motivates and inspires us. Championships are won by teams who love one another, who love and respect one another, who play for and support one another.”

The GHS Student Athletic Council wants to encourage all GHS students to attend fan appreciation nights for varsity winter sports.  At each of these events, those GHS students present during the contest will receive two free slices of pizza for their support.  Here are the dates for winter fan appreciation nights coming up:

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: After 12 seasons and winning 2 Super Bowls, New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin retired last week. His outgoing speech to the media was how deeply he felt about the importance of fostering team chemistry. Regardless of what sport you play or at what level you are participating, this quote about team and unity will apply to you. “My contention is there is a higher ground, a greater purpose. That purpose is team, it is the team concept. Winning, losing, playing hard, playing well, doing it for each other, winning the right way. That’s what motivates and inspires us. Championships are won by teams who love one another, who love and respect one another, who play for and support one another.”

Due to the girls game being postponed on Tuesday, the boys soccer will not be meeting this week for open play.  They will meet next Thursday at the same time as scheduled before.
