Girls Basketball/Coach Krebs Cited for Sportsmanship

The following is from an IHSAA Exemplary Sportsmanship Report, submitted by Elkhart Memorial representative Jacquie Rost:

In a gesture of sportsmanship, Goshen girls basketball presented one of our players, senior Skylar Axsom, with an autographed basketball before the game started. Skylar Axsom recently suffered a leg injury that, in all likelihood, has ended her season.  We are so appreciative of Goshen’s gesture, as it meant a lot, not just to Skylar, but also to our girls program and athletic department. 

Thank you, Coach Krebs and the GHS athletic department, for teaching our students values that go beyond the game.

GYSO is looking for GHS soccer players to help coach this spring.  The season starts right after Spring Break and goes to the first week of June.  Your commitment level would be two evenings a week.  GYSO pays $100 dollars per team.  If you’re interested please sign up in the athletic office this week.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Super Bowl 51 will feature the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday.  Will you watch the game?  The human interest stories on the coaches, players and their families are a good reason to tune in.  Of all the big televised sporting events, the Super Bowl commentary provides more insight into the personal life, successes and failures of these talented athletes (both starters and reserves) than any other.  The event should be outstanding, but the stories told on how these players got here and the challenges they faced are the stories you want to hear.  By watching, you will find a story or comment that will inspire you to become a better student-athlete than you are today!

Seniors: IUSB will be here on February 16th from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. for an onsite admissions visit.  Have your application fee waived, qualify for a $500 scholarship and receive an admissions decision on the spot.  Space is limited.  Sign up in the guidance office TODAY!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  There are many factors that determine how you can become a successful student-athlete.  Have you given any thought on how and why certain student-athletes make a positive impact on their school?  I believe the formula can be summed up in three simple words: Grades over Games.  The foundation of being successful starts in the classroom.  If you dig in academically, it actually makes your involvement in sports an easy transition.  The same principles and work habits apply in both.  Sports are short-lived but serve a great purpose.  Academics last you a lifetime.  While big games are easy to fret over, it’s the daily classroom work that prepares you for the future.  Grades over Games is the true formula for future success!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  There are many factors that determine how you can become a successful student-athlete.  Have you given any thought on how and why certain student-athletes make a positive impact on their school?  I believe the formula can be summed up in three simple words: Grades over Games.  The foundation of being successful starts in the classroom.  If you dig in academically, it actually makes your involvement in sports an easy transition.  The same principles and work habits apply in both.  Sports are short-lived but serve a great purpose.  Academics last you a lifetime.  While big games are easy to fret over, it’s the daily classroom work that prepares you for the future.  Grades over Games is the true formula for future success!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  This past week an NFL general manager was asked to respond to the poor behavior of his star player, wide receiver Odell Beckham, after a tough playoff loss.  Jerry Reese was quoted as saying, “He’s a smart guy but sometimes he doesn’t do smart things.”  Players at all levels have a responsibility of acting properly before, during and after games.  In today’s society, athletes must be aware that almost every negative incident can be tweeted about or seen on video.  Nothing, and especially negative behavior, goes unnoticed.  Everyone slips up from time to time.  However, doing and saying destructive things should never enter the equation.  Make sure your actions and attitude represent you, your school and your team in a first class way!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  All schools have their rivalry games.  What teams on your schedule would you consider to be a rival?  Do they look at you as a rival?  Rival games draw bigger crowds and more excitement.  That means more exposure and more eyes on every moment of the game.  Sometimes under the spotlight tempers fly and athletes do things out of their character.  Are you capable of keeping your cool and composure during tense moments?  The next time you are in a big game (or really any game at all), take time before the game to reflect on how you will react if tempers escalate and the game gets rough and out of control.  Will you keep your composure, regardless of what others do?  Don’t let your hard work and reputation slip during those big moments!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  All schools have their rivalry games.  What teams on your schedule would you consider to be a rival?  Do they look at you as a rival?  Rival games draw bigger crowds and more excitement.  That means more exposure and more eyes on every moment of the game.  Sometimes under the spotlight tempers fly and athletes do things out of their character.  Are you capable of keeping your cool and composure during tense moments?  The next time you are in a big game (or really any game at all), take time before the game to reflect on how you will react if tempers escalate and the game gets rough and out of control.  Will you keep your composure, regardless of what others do?  Don’t let your hard work and reputation slip during those big moments!
