    Question: What's the most important lesson you've learned from a losing effort?

    Lucas Roecker ('18)
    Wisconsin Lutheran High School

    In my athletic career, I have been both undefeated and winless in a season. I have won the match that let my team win and also given up game-winning scores. Throughout all of this, I believe that losing has made more of an impact on me as an individual than winning. The most important lesson I've learned from losing is that no matter how much time and effort is put into a sport, there is alway room for improvement. Nothing is guaranteed. Losing applies in countless real-life situations and has helped me become the person I am today.
