IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  How do you respond as an athlete when things aren’t going well for you?  How do you act when you are demoted or you aren’t playing as much as you wish?  Are you still happy to be a part of the team, or do you put yourself first and continue to think that you deserve more than your coach is giving you?  Do you quit or stick it out?  While I know that it is very difficult to practice hard and give it your all, you can still be important to your team in a supporting role.  In life, you will be challenged with these same decisions when things aren’t going well.  Will you quit, or will you stick it out?  Those who stay involved for the long haul won’t win every battle, but having the right attitude and never quit persona will serve you much better than quitting!

The Ultimate Frisbee Club is hosting a Culver’s Give Back night on Monday, October 2nd from 5:00-8:00 p.m.  Come eat a delicious meal and show your support!  Drive thru orders also count.
