IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Athletes are always faced with challenges. One of the toughest is to finish out a game, meet, or match that you have no chance to win. When you reach that point where you know it’s a loss, how do you react? Do you give up? Do you hang your head? Do you cop an attitude? How you finish those types of games says a lot about you. Do you still give 100%? Are you still positive with your teammates? Do you make up excuses?
The next time you are involved in a sporting event and the time on the clock tells you it’s a loss, don’t let it reflect on your end of the game behavior. Handle it with class and move on immediately to your next challenge!
GHS will be hosting a Red Cross blood drive on Friday, November 20th. Sign-ups are happening now in social studies classes. See Mrs. Clark in room 2280 if you have questions.
