Congratulations Sabre wrestlers! The season has come down to the final days of competition, and whether you remain in comptetition mode or your are now cheering on your teammates at the MN State High School Wrestling Tournament, know that you have taken another step toward success in life. You've completed a full season of training and competition in the most grueling sport, you've pushed yourself to your limits, and you've taken on the responsibilities of your successes and failures along the way. Best wishes to Cole and Jackson this week! The following is a great tribute to the spirit of the sport of wrestling and speaks to the sentiment of respect and camraderie formed by the sport:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt
