Make sure you have a current VHSL Sports Physical on file (must be dated after May 1, 2022).
Please make sure all Physicals have been dropped off in the Athletics Office or you can email them to our Athletic Trainer, Jeff Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, make sure you are registered on rSchool for the 2022-2023 school year.
Thanks for all that you do in making our program a success. Today's youth event has been awesome, and I appreciate all that you do. In the concession area, I sampled many of the treats, and they were fantastic. Up to this point, we've cleared close to $1000 in the concession stand, and hopefully, the NVWF will pay us upwards of $1500 for our work. We've had lots of compliments about our officials and also all the folks in concessions! Thank you! Coach Foster, Flournoy and Gordon have also all been here to make sure the event is smooth!
This weekend, unfortunately, our Beauty and the Beast was canceled due to weather (crazy to think we had snow 5 days ago with today being close to 70 degrees). We have rescheduled these matches for this Wednesday 1/15. Our JV event will not be rescheduled. This weekend, we competed in the Jim Mon invitational at W-L HS. As a team we finished 2nd, and we had some great results individually, We had 5 champions with Alex Delacruz (106), Alex Shapiro (113), Justice Hazard (132), Christian Wilt (138), and Sam Thrower (160). Nathan Germain (285) was 2nd and Aiden Murata (132) and Tom Luther (195) were 3rd. Garrett Nicholson (132), Will Cohen (145) and Bryce Nicholson (160) were 4th, and Mitch McKay (145) and Billy Warter (152) were 5th. It is great to see our young wrestlers succeed!
This week, we will wrestle in our Senior night on Wednesday against West Springfield and Fairfax. They will wrestle first at 5 PM, we will wrestle West Springfield at 6:30 PM and then we will wrestle Fairfax at 8 PM. I hope to see you there to celebrate our 8 Seniors at about 6 PM.
On Thursday, our JV will travel to West Potomac in Alexandria, for our 4th JV jamboree. I am looking forward to seeing our improvement.
On Friday, our Varsity team will leave for Pennsylvania at about 1 PM to compete in the Escape the Rock tournament at Council Rock South HS. (2002 Rock Way, Holland, PA 18966). We will be staying the Comfort Inn at 2779 Lincoln Hwy Feasterville Trevose, PA 19053.
Please remember that when we take a bus to a competition, it is our expectation that all athletes will take the bus back to the school after competition. No one will be able to go home with their parents.
Please remind your athlete that they need to bring a towel and soap to the school to shower after practice. I recommend purchasing Theraworx so athletes can use it before practice. You can find it at CVS or at https://theraworxprotect.com/ I also have many bars of Defense soap in the office if athletes need it.
Make sure you are in class. Any unverified or unexcused absences and tardies will be sent to Coach Hazard and Coach Foster, and you will not be allowed to practice or compete that day if you miss school. This is a school policy that has been in place for years, but until recently they were unable to get coaches the attendance information on time.
