Announcements for the week of 4/17/2018!
Hello gymnastics fans!
Thank you for your support last week! Your presence across our busy week helped us with our successes- At our home meet, senior night, we took home yet another sweep against Palatine keeping ALL 3 TEAMS undefeated this season! This is awesome for the Saxons! Sophomores took 4th of 16 at the tough Conant Invite, Varsity placed 3rd while shorthanded at the Conant Invite on Friday for another plaque, and Frosh did a great job Saturday placing 2nd! Great work everyone and thank you for coming to cheer!
Additionally, now would be a good time to start planning ahead for our banquet- we will have some details soon, so stay tuned, and if you would like to help in any way please let me know.
Next- you will see below the list of important dates for the rest of the season- it is quite a lot so be sure to touch base with your boys to be sure he knows where to be, and when. The conference meets are not required for them to attend the other levels as it says on the calendar, but would be great if they could. Also, be aware that the Frosh conference meet is this Saturday at 11am still, but at ELK GROVE and not at Conant as it indicates. If you have any other questions on this calendar please let me know!
Finally, I have created a photo album on google photos for you to be able to view, as well as upload to. You may also download any photos both myself and others have taken that you see on there. Feel free to upload any you may have from our meets! The link is below. Thanks for everything, see you later this week!
