Remarkable: Something worth making a remark about.
In 2015 the women’s tennis team didn’t win a single SUNYAC game. After the season I was approached by a freshman, asking if we could start a strength and conditioning program for the team. We did.
In 2018, as of this writing, the team is undefeated and 1-0 in the SUNYAC, and for the first time I’m genuinely excited for their match against Geneseo on Saturday. Strength and conditioning was only a small factor in the team’s improvement–talented players, coaching, and luck played a bigger role.
But it started with a freshman who stood up and said, “This isn’t good enough.” Luck tends to flow towards initiative.
And remarkable is directly under your control.
