Team News Aug 14, 2018- need volunteers for Thursday

Hope each of you are enjoying the last few days of summer at the beach, pool, and of course getting fitter, faster, and stronger!   Tomorrow Soph, Jr, Sr have orientation and Thursday freshman have their orientation. There are many items that are suggested that you purchase at orientation, you do not need to buy PE clothes but we do recommend the ASB sticker as it gets students into all home sporting events free and the monies from the ASB sticker support our athletics programs.  We also encourage a donation to our transportation fund which you can find on the Buena on-line store

New this year from our athletic department is a request (mandatory?) that each team work at the Buena Bistro (stadium snack bar) for one football  game. This is in lieu of an additional athletic department wide fundraiser. The monies from the Bistro will help offset the cost of our entry fees.

We have been assigned to work this THURSDAY for the Frosh-JV games. (late notice I know- coaches found out today) We are needing 15 athletes and 4 adults to work starting at 3 pm until ? This is a new thing and the administration / A.D. are still ironing things out. I know that we can do a great job in the Bistro with all of our experience with Boogie Nights and other races. Please email Coach Burns or Coach Torres if you are able to work the Bistro. Or tell us at practice.

Our first race is on Aug 25, the Hoka One One Postal 2 mile, at Buena High School. The first race is at 7 pm.  More details to following….

4th of July Channel Islands 5k/10k – need volunteers
