Dear Bantams and parents,
As I type this, I am grinning from ear to ear after spending an amazing day watching our CCC athletes run, jump, and throw with intensity, conviction, and just the right amount of silliness. I also feel truly sad that the season has reached its end.
At today’s meet, we had many excellent finishes and placed high on the podium in several events. Some athletes ran despite not feeling well, not wanting let their teammates down and still gave it their absolute all out their on the field. Other athletes stepped in or were willing to step in for those athletes that simply could not compete today. Everyone cheered their hearts out and even when a baton dropped,it was picked up, and the race was resumed without ever a thought of giving up! This is all the stuff of which champions are made.
Thank you athletes, parents, and coaches for a magical season. I am grateful for each and every one of you!
For those wanting to continue running throughout the summer, I encourage you all to come out and try the Boogie Nights Run Series held each Wednesday night for 10 weeks starting this Wednesday.
Boogie Nights is a 5K (sprinters are running in fear now) and a free kids 1K. If any athletes want to try the 5k and want a pacer, let me know ahead of time and if I can, I will come and run with them. We usually have a good Tigres turnout and it supports Buena Cross Country too:)
Finally, for those still needing to pick up their end of season goodies and for those athletes that did not get their medals from today’s meet, look for an upcoming Tigres team-wide email regarding day(s) and times to pick them up soon.
Have a wonderful offseason! Happy running and I look forward to seeing you all next season.
For those that were unable to pick up their athlete packets at the picnic, I will have them today (not Friday) at Buena from 4:30-5:30
It was great to see most of you at our Tigres picnic today! For those who missed it we thanked the parents, the coaches, and all of you amazing athletes.
At the start of our Bantam gathering, we acknowledged our athletes that competed in League Championships yesterday. In my nervousness of speaking to large groups, I accidentally left out one of our amazing athletes. I want to publicly give a huge shout out to
Bennett Rodman for her 8th place finish in the high jump- Bennett you rock!
For those of you that were unable to attend the picnic- we missed you! I will be at Buena this week Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 4:30-5:30 with your gift/ribbons/team picture. Please come by to pick it up and give me one more high five.
Thank you all for your kind words, gifts, and hugs. I miss you all already and I hope we see each other over summer running and playing in our beautiful town.
P.S.- Part 2 to come next week to share our athletes successes at Co Conference Championships:)
Once again you rocked it! What an amazing end to our regular season! Athletes thank you for your enthusiasm, effort, your support of one another, and your ability to live in the moment and give your all on a hot, breezy Ventura day. Parents, thank you for your support of all our athletes and your volunteer time to help the meet run smoothly. Coaches, thank you for being an amazing group to work with. I am grateful for all that I have learned from you and with you.
Please remember that this Sunday, May 7th will be our Tigres picnic. It is an opportunity for our whole team to come together and celebrate all that we have accomplished this season. Plus we all have ribbons and gifts for the athletes. Please don’t miss it! We want to see you all out there.
Bantams are asked to bring drinks (no glass) – coolers and ice will be provided. Please see the link below for all of the important information regarding the event.
I am missing meet sign ups for the following athletes:
Fletcher, Joaquin V, Kadyn, Ramsey, Sami, Kenley, Makayla, Ryann, and Sayani
What an amazing season this has been! You are all inspiring, hard working, and FUN! Please congratulate your following Bantam teammates that I hope you have both been inspired by and have helped to inspire as they move on to Championships:
Here are your qualifiers!
HI Bantams and Parents,
Thank you all for a great Monday practice! A big thank you to all of the parents that filled and brought water balloons!
We will be back at Buena on Wednesday for our last Bantam team practice:(
This week’s meet is League Finals on Saturday at Buena High School (8:30 start).
This will be a large meet with 3 other teams from the VCYTC. There is NO qualification for this meet – all athletes can compete. However, there are a few guidelines to follow.
- Regular event limits apply – 4 events, 3 of which can be running (the 4×400 does not count towards event limits)
- You must have competed in the event sometime during the season in order to compete in that event in League Finals.
- You cannot compete in any event in which you are in the top 9 (laned events or field events) or top 12 (distance events) in the VCYTC. Please check Athletic.net on to see where athletes rank.
For athletes that do not qualify for the Conference Championships, this will be the last week of practice. We will be posting a list of athletes who qualified for the Conference Championships as soon as all of the results are loaded into Athletic.net. There will also be some athletes that may be asked to participate in relays who did not qualify for individual events, so please check the list closely to see who will be participating.
Sign ups for this weekend’s meet will be at practice on Monday and if an athlete qualified for Championships in an event that event will be blacked out on the sign up sheet as a reminder that they cannot compete in that event this weekend.
Thank you all
Hi Bantams and Parents;
Last night was an incredible end our regular season. Thank you to all who came and ran hard, played hard, and volunteers hard:). If you can believe it, we had 6 Bantam teams run the 4×400 at 8:30 p.m. under the lights! It was nothing short of awesome!
On to this week:
Location: Arroyo Verde Park at the bottom of the hill on the left side of the park as you enter, past the first bathroom and before the first playground (same location as our first week of practice)
Time 4:45-6:30 (note later start time to allow sibling drop off at Buena) I will be there by 4:30
What to expect – games, running, definitely some water, probably some sugar, and hopefully lots of smiles
Normal time and place. This will be the last Bantam team practice for those athletes not moving on to Varsity.
Final varsity lists should be out by Monday.
League Finals meet on Saturday April 29th is open to all and sign ups will be available on Wednesday at practice.
Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday – Speciality practice as usual.
Bantams you rock!!!
Team pictures will be taken this Wednesday 4/19.
Pictures will begin promptly at 4:30 and Bantams will take their pictures first, please arrive on time with your athlete in their team uniform (jersey and running shorts).
Any t-shirts worn under the jersey should be white.
Fun day will be next Monday and more information will follow later in the week. I am in need of 2-3 parents willing to fill water balloons and deliver them in coolers to Arroyo Verde on Monday. I can supply you with the balloons at the meet. Please email me if you can help.
