 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


-Elizabeth LaHoda


 


Persistence


"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."

- Author Unknown



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".
