With High School Sports Back on the Calendar, Everyone Wins
September 14, 2021
It seems like the right time to make a bit of a change to the popular phrase ‘It’s not whether you win or lose; it’s how you play the game.’ For many high schoolers, playing at all is enough. So let’s say, ‘It’s not whether you win or lose; it’s simply playing the game.’
It’s safe to say that many of us have a new appreciation for the spirited competition between our local high school sports teams. Absence definitely makes the heart grow fonder, and the families and boosters of our student-athletes are as excited for the return of fall sports as are the young competitors themselves. Our community has always supported and rallied around our young athletes, with the belief that high school sports are great for mind, body, and spirit. Participation within a team fosters cooperative skills and helps to build self-confidence and self-esteem. Teamwork encourages leadership and social skills.
During the fall months, Miramonte, Campolindo, Acalanes, and Bentley student-athletes partake in cross country, girls volleyball, boys and girls water polo, girls golf, girls tennis, and football. One need not be a family member in order to share in the fun of a Friday night football game or a Saturday morning water polo match. If you crave a sense of community, there’s no better place to spend a few hours.
