For nine months, Liam Saunders has played squash for Cowra Services. In the State Knockout from the previous year, he was inserted as Cowra High’s fourth player and, in his own words, “was absolutely terrible.” At the NSW CHS State Finals this year, Liam represented Cowra Highs as their #2 player, forcing some of the best juniors in NSW to compete for victories.
A 1, 2, 3, and 4 player are presented by each school. The first player faces the first player from the other team, the second player faces the second opponent, etc. However, if a school has numerous talented athletes. In reality, their #2 player or even their #4 player could be among the best competitors. Liam was placed in some extremely difficult matches against NSW representative players as Cowra High #2. Even when he was trailing by a large margin, he maintained an astonishing level of composure. After losing a game, it is simple to give up; after losing a match, it is even simpler. Liam never displayed any signs of fraying.He had unknowingly discovered a sports psychology strategy and successfully applied it to aid in his relaxation and refocus.
Congratulations to Liam and the incredibly hard work he dedicated to become the excellent athlete he is today!
