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. The open house will be held from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in the GHS cafeteria. The open house will have memorabilia from our many years as the Goshen Redskins, the unveiling of a design for a commemorative display case in the GHS athletic area, the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and the induction of “the Chief” into the GHS athletic wall of fame. In advance of this event, a commemorative tee shirt has been designed featuring both the Redskin and the new RedHawk mascot and is available for purchase via the internet at http://tinyurl.com/zxtvrdv. 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. These shirts will only be available until February 4th so that they can be distributed at the open house on February 20th. After the open house, plans are for the window to re-open for a brief period.
