‘Why We Play’: Education-based coaching takes hold in district

When the Giants opened volleyball playoffs Oct. 27 against defending state champion Belle Plaine, players knew it was a tough task. A loss was likely.

Belle Plaine had just three days earlier easily handled Le Sueur-Henderson and the two teams were pitted against one another. And the Tigers did it again, ending the Giants’ season.

How did the team handle the loss? Athletes don’t like to lose. It’s the nature of the game. But so is reality. Eventually, like in life, there is loss.
