Announcements for 10/13

October 13, 2016

Good morning! Today is Thursday, October 13, and it is a B Day for everyone.

6th Grade boys basketball will have practice this evening from 5:00-6:30 p.m. This is an addition to the practice schedule. They will have practice on Friday as previously scheduled.

Cross Country Message from Coach Lynn:
Practice today for State Qualifiers at Lincoln Park, 2:45-4:00. Meet Mr.
Lynn on the 12th Street side of the building. State Qualifiers will meet
at Parkside Junior High in Normal, IL at 10:00am Saturday. The girls' race
is scheduled for 11am. Go Leopards!

All athletes must turn in uniforms to Mr. Hampsey or Mr. Lynn, if you have
not done so already. The last chance to turn in uniforms will be at the
year-end Cross Country Party: Tuesday, October 18 at LMS from 2:45-4:00.
Bring your shorts and top; bring a snack or drinks to share. This has been a fantastic season of improved fitness, classy sportsmanship, supportive teamwork, and surprising growth. Don't stop running. Stay in shape. Let's continue to use the blog. Post your runs of 1-5 miles twice each week—especially those who would like to run 800 and 1600 on the Track Team this season. We need our Cross Country Runners to support our jumpers, throwers, and sprinters! Success will be waiting for those who work hardest during the offseason.
