Looking Back

What a fantastic summer of conditioning!  It’s hard to believe the season is upon us.  Nike had a great first week of practice, and the Brooks girls did a great job last week – working hard all the way to the end.


Commitment & Mileage:  Don’t forget to turn in your mileage calendars to Coach McPherson!  If it’s easier, email your calendar to jenmcphersoncc@gmail.com.  Today (Sunday, August 14th) is the last day for commitment and summer mileage.


Looking Ahead

No athlete will be allowed to practice without turning in a valid sports physical.  Here is a link to the form:  MHSAA Physical Form .  If you haven’t turned yours in, bring it to the first day of practice.


Instagram & flickr:  Coach Eileen has launched team Instagram & flickr accounts.  Follow us on Instagram at @salinewxc.   If you have pictures you would like to post, email them to Eileen at creutzeileen@gmail.com.  Also, extra pictures taken at practice will be shared on a team flickr account:  SalineWXC.
