Hope everyone had a good weekend – was great to see so many at the fields Fri and Sat.
The 12th annual Spartan Shootout came to a close Sat at 6:00 and I think safe to say that it was a successful weekend both on and off the field – 16 games in total were played by Claremont teams and only one blemish thru all games and against a very good club team from Coquitlam.
Friday Night Lights was a big success for both the game and the ‘event’. Was fantastic to have so many involved from a school perspective with staff and students.Huge thanks to Mr Plant and the rest of the staff that helped make the event, the dancers and Ms G, as well as all the students. Was also a very good game and good win against a very good team from Mercer (and thx to them for their patience and willingness to participate in the game once again).
Was a wonderful way to honour our gr 12 players and their parents – we are very proud of them and all of their play that evening was a tribute to 4 years of hard work. A pic is attached of our graduating players. Hope that parents and players enjoyed the pre-game festivities as well as the game itself. Was a fantastic effort by all gr 12’s.
Huge thx to all parent volunteers – makes the tournament run and is a critical part of our hosting of the tournament. Special thx to Joni Philips for her help with UVic fields. I don’t want to miss any and appreciate the help, the sponsorship, the program, etc from all but…do want to recognize 3 ladies who continue to be integral components to a successful tournament. Once again thx to Caroline Mace for her amazing work organizing all the volunteers and jobs and two ladies who’s sons have graduated and do the work without having children in the program – thx to Michelle Glanfield for her work on the program and Cheryl Brown for her work with sponsorship and the organization of Friday Night Lights.
Onto this week – we are at the school for Mon and Wed and at the turf for Tues and Thur. Seattle prep for our jr program and a battle of the inter squad for our sr teams (currently tied at 1 each). Permission forms were given to all those going to Seattle this Fri – please send forms and $$ in tomorrow.
Any questions – let me know.
thx – Darren
