Another great effort by our boys last night. The improvement is loud and clear. Fifty Six percent of the boys who ran yesterday had a season best performance all while putting in a lot of hard work at practice. When we start to taper off in the weeks to come and changing our workouts to speed the times will continue to come down. Can't say enough about the three men your sons have writing these workouts and who set the example of dedication and enthusiasm each and every day. Coach Shawn Gumke, Coach Stephan Fritsch, and Coach Chris Lewis. Very proud to work with them, very proud of your sons, and very proud of the support we get from all of you parents.
A big THANK YOU to the Hammond family for hosting dinner on Tuesday evening. The boys really appreciate it and most importantly it helps our team to bond which is so very crucial in the success of each athlete. A big THANK YOU to the Littrell and Lake families for supplying snacks after the meet.
This Saturday we had scheduled an optional practice but have decided to make it mandatory. We just need more time to train and Saturday morning provides such a great opportunity to do so. Want to keep the momentum of our success moving forward. We are meeting at Holmberg Park located at 9651 N. Wall St. The purpose is to run hills which we will encounter in the next two meets on Wednesday at Liberty Lake Park and next Saturday in Missoula Mt.
The whole team is going to Missoula. Both JV and Varsity will be racing . The cost is $40 per kid to cover the hotel. The boys need to bring money for food. We are leaving after 2nd period on Friday the 23rd and returning in the evening of the 24th.
The Orange/Grapefruit Sale fundraiser is kicking off next week. Trust me, you'll never eat a better orange or grapefruit. They are picked fresh off the tree from California and Texas and delivered within a few days to Mt. Spokane. We have sold them for two years during track and people can't wait to buy again. We sell each 20 lb box for $30 which is more than the local stores but you get what you pay for.
PLEASE SELL TO FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND NEIGHBORS ALIKE.
California Navel Oranges
The vivid orange color, and sweet taste of California Navel Oranges can be attributed to the growing climate of the San Joaquin Valley in Central California. This seedless fruit is juicy, full of flavor, and easy to peel.
Depending on the size and availability each 20lb box holds either 44 or 48 oranges.
Rio Star Grapefruit
Texas Rio Star Grapefruit is truly “GREATFRUIT”. Unlike most grapefruit, it’s deep red body is sweet to the taste. Grown in the semi-tropical climate of the Gulf of Mexico’s, Rio Grande Valley, this thin-skinned fruit is so delicious you can peel it and eat it like an orange!
Depending on the size and availability each 20lb box holds either 20, 24, or 28 grapefruit.
