Tough Decisions

As a coach I've had to make some tough decisions.  This week I've got a really tough one to make.  There's a kid who has been running a specific relay all season long with a myriad of other guys.  This last week I've been looking at who has the best chances of making it the furthest in the post-season.  This particular young man is the slowest of all the participants in his relay.  There is a faster athlete.  I know he's going to be angry and disappointed that he's being pulled from this event.  Do I hurt one kid's feelings or hold back four others?  My brain hurts thinking about this.

I knew there were tough decisions to make in life.  What doesn't kill us makes us stronger right?
