Good Evening All,

We hope you had a wonderful start to your weekend. The weather looked a bit uncertain at first. Fortunately for us, it turned out to be a sunny day. As of right now, tomorrow is calling for the same weather. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

As a reminder to the coaches, please double check the final scores posted on the website to make sure all scores are accurate. Also, I want to remind everyone that no seeds or metal cleats are permitted on turf fields.

Hope you had a great day and we’ll see you bright and early tomorrow!
