It takes focus and you can not have your heads in the clouds.

Don’t cheat just compete; don’t take the easy way out.

You must believe and achieve and leave no doubt,

Play your game through the pain and learn to be proud.

Although winners don’t always win and losers must take a bow,

You win by doing What’s Important Now.

No giving up and no throwing in the towel,

Winning takes sacrifice, power, and putting in the hours.

You must stand up to the challenge and get the most from each day,

Represent with your sprint and win your relay.

I hate losing but winning always gives me a grin,

I bring the game soul, and my goal is to win.
