Charger Athletic's News
Hey all --
We've hit a lull for sure -- cross country is hard, a lot of us have an ache or a pain, and things just get tedious sometimes. It's one thing to hear your coach talk about perseverance and overcoming temptation; another thing to stare down another three-mile practice run when you really have had enough already! It's the hardest part of any season. We took a break for ice cream and popsicles after a particularly loose and frustrating practice this last week. We ran some on backwoods trails this morning. More stuff like that to come.
Here's the plan for this week:
Monday 9 September 4:30pm-6:30pm @ Saint Alphonsus -- NWCC Meet 2
Wednesday 11 September 5:30pm-6:30pm @ Saint Alphonsus -- practice (lake loop)
Thursday 12 September 5:30pm-6:30pm @ Saint Alphonsus -- practice (soccer)
Saturday 14 September 9am-10am @ Grace Evangelical/Woodland Trails sledding hill -- practice
Monday 16 September 4:30pm-6:30pm @ Hasbrook Park -- NWCC Meet 3
Let's try to meet Monday on the back lot behind Saint Al's at 4pm. It should be a beautiful day! The meet schedule looks like this:
coaches & volunteer meeting 4:10pm
JV boys 4:30pm
JV girls 4:45pm
Varsity boys 5:00pm
Varsity girls 5:30pm
Thanks to everyone who is volunteering to help out at this meet! Saint Al's really does have an amazing parent tradition of making things happen. We need four course marshals -- Saint Raymond (they of the very large team with many parents) will coordinate the rest. Please respond to me if you can help out.

That's all I got! GO CHARGERS!
The St Al's Athletic Department has started using Team App as a way to keep everyone on our teams connected by smartphone. Many of you already use apps like Team App for traveling teams and so forth. Apps can be really handy for things like cancelled practices and late updates about the team.
You can also download the app from the App Store or Google Play to sign up. You create an account, verify it through a confirmation email, log in to the phone app, and you can search for 'Saint Al Chargers'. Request access to that group and we'll approve you in.
Let me know if you have questions or problems!
Thanks for everything you do for Saint Al's!
