IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-1-17)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

"Your next opponent doesn't care about last week's victory" was a quote I read recently that makes so much sense. It is so true. In athletics, yesterday doesn't matter near as much as tomorrow does.

Are you able to move on after a sweet win? What about a tough loss? Does it hang with you or are you able to brush it off after a couple of days?

It has been said that the best athletes have short term memory. They don't dwell on wins or losses or personal performance. Instead, they concentrate on improvement and trying to get better every day.

There is no doubt that a well-earned victory can be satisfying and self-serving, but in most cases it is forgotten about shortly. Successful players and coaches are always looking to the future and use the past as a gauge on how to make that successful!
