IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  In looking back at your classroom and sports performance this past school year, what have you learned about yourself?  Hopefully you tasted some success and learned from your mistakes.  But more importantly, I hope you have developed a work ethic and attitude that will benefit you going forward.  Eleven-time Grand Slam tennis champion Novak Djokovic admitted in Sports Illustrated that “there were days and times of my career when I went through a lot of doubt.”  So whether you are a graduating senior or just starting your high school experience, know there will be tough times and a lot of doubt.  No student-athlete is exempt!  Not even the most successful ones.
