"Coach, I could have stayed home and rested, but I wanted to come to Black Friday!"
A Good Swimmer
A good swimmer doesn’t count his laps
To find a way to cheat it
A good swimmer counts his time
To find a way to beat it
A good swimmer doesn’t complain
About the race he has to do
A good swimmer holds the idea
That he will make it through
A good swimmer doesn’t only care
About others swimming near him
A good swimmer also thinks
About his stroke, and his swim
A good swimmer doesn’t stop
He keeps holding on
He knows he will only win the race
If he stays strong
A good swimmer doesn’t "comfort swim”
As said by Coach Kelly
A good swimmer pushes him
And works the muscles in his belly
Smarts, depth, strength, coaching
The Stingrays have all these
Because of our determination
We only aim to succeed
We all know what a good swimmer is
We were taught it by the best
So, champions or not…
We’re better than the rest
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men and women with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
The Winners Creed
If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch you won't
If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out in the world we find...
Success begins with a person's faith,
It's all a state of mind
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster hand...
They go to the one who trusts in God
And always thinks "I Can".
