Girls have been working really hard and things are coming together. We are preparing for our first games this week. Please take note of this week’s schedule and some important info.

Games-check our schedule on
Google and on the Season Schedule pages

IMPORTANT: BHS has Back to School Night on Sept. 6th. We also have an away game at Monta Vista so that will be a packed day. Also, we have three Sat. events in Sept. on the 10th, 17th and 24th. Please make sure to mark your calendars.

Week of 8.21.16

It was great to see almost all of the parents at the meeting. We had an attendance rate of 80% but unfortunately was lower than volleyball’s 90%, so we didn’t win the $500. I am confident that we can do it next year.

As far as teams, they are updated on Register My Athlete. If your name is not listed as varsity or JV on your profile, then let us know. We will post official roster this week.

Here’s what is going on this week:
Monday-regular practice times Var 3:15-5:15/JV 4:45-6:45 TESTING MAKEUPS after practice

IMPORTANT-On Thursday at 7 p.m. there is a mandatory parent meeting. It starts in the cafeteria then FH will meet together for a short meeting in another room. You MUST have a parent represent you. If a parent is unable to attend, have a relative and/or close family friend. The team with the highest percentage of attendance will receive $500, so let’s do this!

Uniforms and Gear-All players will raise at least $250. This can be a simple check or a combination of fundraising and personal donation. This money covers the $50 Sports Participation Donation, team gear package, and other various costs throughout the season (senior night, alumni game, retreat, etc.)
