IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  All teachers and coaches use the expression “no excuses” from time to time.  Have you made excuses for not playing well or making a poor grade in the classroom?  It’s easy to place blame on others to cover-up your own deficiencies.  However, making excuses is rarely justified.  Not only that, teachers and coaches don’t like hearing about it.  Other than sickness or a justified injury, don’t use a weak excuse if you under-perform.  Instead, take accountability and move on to your next challenge.  By doing so, you will gain the respect and confidence of all those around you!
