When it comes to having a rough sports season where you’re not bringing in as many wins as you would like, there are two paths you can take. The first path (and not the one I would recommend) is to remain so focused on your frustration towards yourself and your teammates that you stay complacent in your negativity towards the situation until you throw your hands in the air and give up. Or you take the second path (and the one most likely to bring you peace of mind) which involves you maintaining a “Can Do” attitude.
Yes, it’s hard putting everything you have into a game only to walk away with a loss. But instead of allowing it to consume you, let it teach you something. Figure out what went wrong and band together to make it right. On Monday night, the Waldron Jr High Lady Bulldogs took a hard fall against the Mansfield Lady Tigers 47-9. Could the Lady Bulldogs have given up because their season hasn’t been the best? Yes. But that’s not who these girls are.
I have been blessed to get to know a few of these players personally, and I can tell you first hand that you would be hard-pressed to find another team so determined to make things happen. These girls have so much perseverance and ambition that giving up is not an option for them. They want to succeed and prove to their peers and community that they have what it takes to go big or go home. And that’s exactly the attitude they bring with them every time they hit the court.
Vivian Holmes led her team offensively against the Lady Tigers earning four points while Jasmine Nelson made two, and Reagan Adams, Katie Stringer, and Hazel Buesing each pulled in one. With 14 total team rebounds, Stringer led with five, Jinjer Ward earned three, Adams and Lily Woodard made two each, and Holmes and Peyton Boyd snagged one apiece.
The Jr High Lady Bulldogs will be back in action on Thursday, January 30 at 4 p.m. when they take on the Lady Pirates at Cedarville.
