Hi Panther Families!
This week our Track and Field teams will get to compete. They’ve been training hard, and are ready to run! Best of luck to our fast-footed Panthers and their coaches!
Athletes auditioning for Mamma Mia are excused from practice on audition days, but communication is a must. If an athlete has a competition on an audition day, he or she should communicate with me, and we will look at options together.
Congratulations to both our Elementary teams on a great start to the basketball season! The Elementary boys lost in a close, but well fought game with Alexander Henderson School. Our Elementary Lady Panthers took their first win of the season against the Henderson girls. Thanks to all our fans that came out to watch and cheer both our teams! Many, many thanks to Coach Hill for practicing with both teams when our girls’ coach was called away. Thanks also to Coach Evans and Coach Floyd, not just for coaching, but for giving the girls extra confidence going into their first game.
Elementary basketball parents, please note that this Tuesday’s games have been moved to Thursday. Unfortunately, due to the late notice about the outside league soccer tournament, which created conflicts for many boys’ team players, we have to play both games (boys and girls) at Juanita Gardine, which will cost a great deal extra in transportation fees. In the future, if your athlete has other commitments during a team’s season, please communicate well in advance. This helps us avoid additional costs and complications with schedules and other teams.
Middle School Boys’ basketball season tips off this week, with first game on Tuesday. All league games will be played at Free Will’s gym. Athletes need to be prepared to pack up quickly after school, and hustle down to the taxi, dressed and ready. Don’t forget water, and we can’t wait to see you play! Also, to our new coach Peter TeWinkle, good luck, and thank you for the details, expertise and time you put into preseason. Go Panthers!
Sailors Taylor Hasson, Rider Odom, Elyssa Franklin, Lucia Bishop, Matthieu Dale, Luca Gruber and Brielle Schindler will be competing in St. Thomas this weekend. May the Panther Spirit fill your sails! Thank you, Richard Hasson, for transporting and chaperoning them!
