Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-21-18)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

According to an article in the Indianapolis Star, one of the top returning baseball teams in the state has had a disappointing regular season, but like all teams, hope to peak during the state tournament.

A quote by one of their three Division I pitching recruits explains why he thinks his team will be ready for the challenges ahead.

"It is good for us because it makes us accountable. When we lose, we see how it affects everybody in the community. It is good for us to have that leadership position in the community because you should be accountable for what you are doing." (Wins and losses)

Win or lose, you are accountable for your performance, your attitude and your result.  Focusing on what you can and will do (rather than others) will keep you moving toward achieving your personal or team goals.
