Season Wrap Up

Hi Everyone,
It seems like forever ago that I last saw many of you! I guess 60’s in February may mess with my seasonal biological clock. If you didn’t hear Sections went super well and three athletes competed at State last Thursday. Wish I could have included more of you in our trip back to winter!
Just wanted to send out a few notes about post season items.

1. Uniform and ski return. If you could please just come by my room one day next week and drop equipment off that would be great. I’m in by 8am each day. I usually let students keep their gear until after spring break so you can enjoy late season snow, however with the snow situation I’ll start collecting early.
2. Banquet: The banquet is scheduled for Monday, March 6th 6-8pm, more info to come. Please check e-mails or make contact with Brianna or Maia if you plan on attending.

Have a great weekend:-)

Where: Andes Tower Hills
When: Tuesday, January 31st

Awards: Awards will be given to the top 10 of each race.
Timing: We will have coaches and managers in charge of recording times.
We are still deciding on which starting format to use, as the starting area isn’t in prime condition. If we find it feasible to do a mass start, then we may compress the junior high race times to allow more time for JV and Varsity races.
Parking: Andes has a large parking lot that should accommodate all busses/spectators. PARKING LOT IS VERY ICY. PLEASE USE CAUTION.

Coaches Meeting
