“I think life is a lot about attitude and effort,” said Natalie Lewis, CR-B head volleyball coach. “We will get out of it what we put into it and sports have a lot of those same lessons.”
Coaches and athletes at CR-B are seeing the sports they participate in as more than just sports. They are seeing their efforts have stronger impacts on not only themselves but entire athletic teams. CR-B athletes are thinking critically about what their involvement in various sports teach them.
“One thing that I’ve learned is that everyone needs to do their job in order to win,” said Wyatt Oswald, CR-B’s varsity quarterback. “If someone doesn’t do their job, you’re probably not going to be very successful.”
“The biggest thing that I have learned this year so far is that you have to work as a team to be successful,” said Malia Clayburg, a member of the Crusader volleyball squad. “If we all work together, we will get more good results in the end.”
“I have learned that cross country isn’t just about you, it’s about your team,” said Landon Cook, a sophomore cross country runner. “It’s fun if you do well, but it’s better if the whole team does well.”
Clearly, CR-B athletes are learning that sports, like life, are a team effort. The effort they are putting into their sports are not only impacting themselves but everybody involved.
