Welcome to week 11 of the season! We close out the regular season on Monday and find out what our road to the State Championship looks like.
Here is our schedule for this week:
- Monday: SENIOR NIGHT vs St Charles [El Trafficko] (Details below)
- Tuesday: 2:30-4:30 PM *JV Last Practice*
- Wednesday: 2:30-4:30 PM
- Thursday: 2:30-4:30 PM
- Friday: 2:30-4:30 PM (POSSIBLE PLAYOFF GAME??)
Senior Night – Our Senior Night this year is October 22, against St. Charles. At halftime during the Varsity game, each of our seniors will be recognized. Seniors and their parents will walk the track, have pictures taken and receive a gift. After the game, we will have our feast on the track. Everyone is invited to attend the post-game feast. Please consider bringing something. We are in need of 3 appetizers, 1 main dish, 8 side dishes, 5 bread items, 3 desserts and 2 beverages. You can sign up at PerfectPotluck.com, use my last name for the coordinator’s last name ( Juracko ) and the password is 1819 . Thank you to the folks that have signed up already!
Playoff Practice Team – I will be asking a handful of JV players to join the Varsity team on Tuesday. This does not mean that they will dress or play in the post season. It does mean that we will need their skills and abilities to practice against as we proceed into the playoffs. Any JV player that currently has a F or does not have the minimum required GPA will not be considered.
Grades – The interims that I saw looked decent. We need to keep up the hard work as we head into the final month of this report period. One of our team goals for this season is for everyone to finish the season academically eligible. If you need help with a class, please see any of the coaches. We have the core subjects covered. PLEASE NOTE – eligibility also extends to attendance. Please make sure that you have a parent’s note to the attendance secretary within 5 days of any absence.
Playoffs – I wanted to share the tentative schedule for the playoffs. Round 1 is Oct. 26. Round 2 is Oct 30. The Section Final is Nov. 2. The Region Championship is Nov. 6. The Playoff bracket will be released tomorrow, October 22.
JV Uniform Return – Coach Lansley will collect clean home and away jerseys this week. Please return those items in a timely manner. I do not want a debt to be placed on anyone’s student account.
JV – Timothy Warren! The freshmen put in some hard work this week in practices. Additionally, he had a good game against Calvert on Friday! Good job Timothy!
Varsity – Jeremy McBain! The sophomore got the start at forward against Calvert on Friday and made an immediate impact, scoring the game’s first goal. Atta’boy Jeremy!
