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.
The GHS Student Athletic Council wants to encourage all GHS students to attend fan appreciation nights for varsity winter sports.

- Girls basketball – Thursday, January 14th (halftime)
- Wrestling – Saturday, January 16th (before finals)
- Swimming/Diving – Tuesday, January 19th (after diving and at the NEW GMS POOL!)
