WHERE ARE THEY NOW
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (2-25-13)
February 25, 2013Franklin Community High School
"Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana."
How do you react after a tough loss? Can you get over your disappointment immediately? Are you cordial during the post-game handshakes as you walk through the line congratulating the other team?
It's true, all competitive athletes are disappointed after a loss. It's understandable that you may be upset and want some time alone.
However, be sure to represent yourself and your school in a professional manner as you go through the line congratulating the other team and coaches.
It's okay to be disappointed, but do so without a negative attitude and negative comments. If not, when it's all said and done and the smoke has cleared, you will be very unhappy with yourself and your actions.
