IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-13-17)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
“The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat” is a saying that’s been around the sports world for a long time. It’s still applicable today and applies to all sports, team or individual.
You have all played sports long enough to be on the winning end of an exciting or unexpected victory. The same can be said about that devastating loss.
The agony of defeat seems to set in when it happens in your final game. Whether it’s players playing in the NCAA Tournament or your local high school finale, that last loss is one that stays with you a lifetime.
While it seems like the end of the world the moment it happens, we all know that it isn’t. Use those disappointing moments to inspire you to move onto bigger and greater things!
