Hello athletes and families,

It has been a great first week of the season. The Time Trial was a great event and we want to thank our Booster for providing bagels, drinks, and doughnuts! Reminders: Athletes need to bring water bottles, have good supportive running shoes, and if possible a stopwatch (doesn't need to be fancy, just one that has stop watch capability). Please look ahead at the race schedule and let Coach Liza know ASAP if you cannot attend a race (which is an absence). We are scheduling busses and paying for meet entries now, so we will need accurate info. 

Upcoming Practices:
Monday, August 30 - Freshman will start practice at 3 pm at the softball field so they will be done by the 4 pm orientation event being hosted at the High School.

Starting Tuesday, August 31 going forward - Squad Check ins will be at 3:45 pm at the softball fields. Running warmups will start at 4 pm and we will be done ~5:30-6:00 depending on workout. Athletes can bring all the gear to the dug outs to store under covered.
