Whitley County, Ind.
2013-14 Athletes of the year
2
July, 2014
COLUMBIA CITY — Leading scorers,
top tacklers, fastest runners: Yep, those
athletes are awesome to watch and fun to
cover in the newspaper.
But that’s not all that makes a good
athlete.
The complete athlete may excel in his
or her sport, but its attitude that makes a
world of difference — at least in my eyes.
Let’s face it, how many Whitley County
athletes are going to go on to play profes-
sionally? Probably zilch.
But how many Whitley County athletes
will go on to be productive leaders in the
community? Quite a few.
And I think sports play a vital role in
that. No, my jump shot on the basketball
court does not play a role in my ability as
a writer or photographer.
However, my experience in sports has
made me a better person.
I know that if I work hard, I can really
do anything. In third grade, my basket-
ball coach told me that I was no longer
allowed to jump in my free-throw shots.
I looked at him like he was crazy. I
thought there was no way I could ever
make a free throw again.
After completely missing the net in the
first few shots, it wasn’t long and I was
making shot after shot.
Does my third-grade free-throw per-
centage matter in my life now? No. But
because of that experience, I learned per-
severance, I learned how to push myself,
and I learned that a little hard work will
pay off.
This publication provides a snapshot
of the county’s top athletes of the 2013-14
season — the leaders in statistics and the
athletes who exude excellence in sports-
manship.
I think Whitley County has some of
the best of the best. Kalisha Goree and
Gabrielle Hazen are both stand-out ath-
letes who are moving on to play volleyball
in the Big Ten Conference.
They’re a dynamic duo on the floor,
leading the team and conference in statis-
tics — but that’s not the only reason why I
think they’re great.
In any interview I’ve had with those
girls, they have been nothing but humble.
They always give the credit for their suc-
cesses to the team, their coaches and their
parents. Whitley County has scores of ath-
letes with similar attitudes, and I love it.
I encourage local youth league coach-
es to keep these words in mind as you
mold and form Whitley County’s future
Athletes of the Week: It’s not all in the
numbers.
Teach them to be good team players,
have good sportsmanship, that it’s OK to
make sacrifices for others, and to respect
their coaches and officials.
In the end, in real life, those are the
qualities that will take our athletes to the
next level in their schooling, in their jobs
and in their personal relationships.

the Week for the coming 2014-15 sports
season, contact us at sports@thepostandmail.
