This past week saw the Lady Rangers conclude the first round of District play and start the 2nd round of District action albeit in reverse order.

On Tuesday night the Lady Rangers hosted the #6 Regionally ranked & #29 State Ranked Cedar Ridge Raiders. The JV teams battled to a 0-0 draw while Varsity defeated the Raiders 2-0 with Goals by Lily Vandiver and Katelynn Lyle.

On Friday night the Lady Rangers made up their previously postponed game with Manor. JV won 8-0, and Varsity won 7-1 with Goals scored by Kendel Alford, Julia Ramsey, Lily Vandiver, Olivia Clark, Ella Fiore, Bella Medina, and Layli Coover.

Final Thoughts

A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp, and he spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by the use of chains.

All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs.

As the man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp. They could easily have done so, but instead, they didn’t try to at all.

Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape.

The trainer replied;

“when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The only reason that the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was that over time they adopted the belief that it just wasn’t possible.

Moral of the story:

No matter how much the world tries to hold you back, always continue with the belief that what you want to achieve is possible. Believing you can become successful is the most important step in actually achieving it.

As we go into our District Match-ups this week, I want to encourage you not to hold back. Do not let anything from the past impact what lies ahead of you. You have the opportunity to do things this week that have not been done in years. Believe in yourself. Believe in your teammates. But most of all, Believe you are going to do great things, and then go out there and do it.

Enjoy sleeping in tomorrow and We will see you at 3:30 as we prepare for the week.

Let's Go Lady Rangers!
