A Tiger Resolution for the New Year
The BIG headline for the district in November was the incredible success of our State Champion Lady Tigers Soccer Team – WOW!
To be a part of our Tiger Family during this outstanding accomplishment by our amazing student-athletes has been an absolute highlight of my time here in Loveland! While we all know how the final game turned out – I wonder how many of you have heard the story behind the making of that winning headline? It’s a story about goals that were set… by the Lady Tigers… while at Camp Kern… BEFORE the season began.
I'm sure that you can guess their top goal was to win that state title that has eluded them the two previous seasons. That is not the part that has me eager to sit down with the champions and Coach Kelly and learn more.
What really caught my attention were the eight goals the team set to achieve leading up to the state victory finale. Eight goals that strategically led to the state title win. As a team, the athletes identified what their individual game stats would need to be if they were going to win. Each team member understood what they needed to do for the team to maintain the consistency of elite performance that would advance the mission of the team.
And they did it.
In a big, awesome, Tiger kinda way.
In fact – those student-athletes achieved EVERY goal they set for the season.
I call that amazing… and, an inspiration – I hope to us all.
As we collectively close the book on the year 2017, many of us will look to the New Year with new goals in mind.
As the educational leader of this district – I can assure you that our Tiger Family is keeping our eyes on the target for our own story of success. We are staying focused on the “big three” goals we set for this 2017-18 academic year: Growth, Innovation, and Care.
Just like our State Champion student-athletes – from our building secretaries, to our teachers, from our bus drivers, to our food service professionals, from our administrators to our custodial staff, and with our Board of Education leading the way – we are all focused on the success of the students who we are privileged to serve.
Students who have learned what it takes to be the best of the best.
Please join our Board of Education in recognizing the outstanding achievement of our Lady Tigers 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, at the Board of Education Business Meeting (Loveland Intermediate School Media Center). The Loveland Athletic Department will induct the entire 2017 Lady Tigers Soccer Team into our Loveland High School Athletic Hall of Fame during halftime of our Tiger basketball games vs. Kings Friday, Dec. 15. And, our Loveland Athletic Boosters are generously going to purchase State Championship rings for our student-athletes and coaches. When the rings come in, we will organize a public ring ceremony event, where all are welcome.
Let us all resolve to be the best that we can be in the New Year. It is the Tiger way.
In service to our Tigers,
Dr. Amy Crouse
