Thanks to all of you for making this past sports year a great one. It is always so neat to see our athletes improve in the sport they are participating in. A big thanks to Sara for all of her hard work with the Booster Club. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty and has been a tremendous blessing to me. As a reminder be sure to have you child get a sports physical completed over the summer. Forms are available on-line at KSHSAA.org, in the school office and most doctor’s offices will have them as well.
There has been changes to te schedule to this week’s track meet. Shot put, discus, and long jump will be held Friday evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. They will be held at Bishop Carroll. Athletes competing in those events will depart from the school at 5:00. It will be a cafeteria style run-off and so athletes will get in line as their turn comes up take a couple of warm-up throws or jumps and then do three throws and jumps for their result.
The rest of the meet scheduled for Saturday morning has been cancelled due to expected rains. It will not be made up. Saturday May 6 will be the league meet for the Middle School also held at Bishop Carroll. The 4th and 5th grade track participants will be at the Kansas Lutheran Meet held at Central High School.
The league soccer tournament will be next Monday and Tuesday and hosted by Central Christian. Our girls will play Sunrise at 4:00 and if they win will play Classical at 5:15. The third place game will be Tuesday at 4:00 and the championship game Tuesday at 5:15
The rain has put a damper on our spring sports postponing 4 matches to date and forcing track practice indoors. I have updated the calendar with the new soccer schedule so check there for that. The CCA B-game will be added as a third half following the game at CCA on the 24th. We are still looking to see if we can get the game with CCA this week made up but are running out of options.
The track team will have its first meet Saturday at Collegiate. High jump and 3200 m run begin at 8:30 other events will start by 9:00
Our girls soccer team got their season going with and exiting 0-0 tie with the Wichita Warriors. Then the rains came and Thursday’s game with Central Christian had to be postponed due to wet fields. Hopefully things will clear up and dry up as the girls have three games scheduled for next week. Monday the team has a home game against Sunrise followed by a B-Game Tuesday at CCA. Then CCA comes here Thursday for an A-team game. All are scheduled to begin at 4:30. The postponed game has been rescheduled to Monday April 24.
The track team is still working hard in preparation for their first on Saturday April 8th. It will be held at the Collegiate track and events begin at 8:30.
The girl’s soccer team began their practice this week and track will begin next week. Soccer practices Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 3:30-5:30. Track will practice Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 3:30-5:30. Schedules for both can be found in the Calendar section of the blog.
Both of our teams played hard in their two games today and finished fourth in the Topeka Tourney. It was great to see all of our supporters come for the games. It has been a great season and a great way to end the tournament with such great days of basketball and fellowship.

The boys basketball team finished the tournament with two close overtime losses to Collegiate to finish second in the tournament. The first game was a one point loss in the overtime. That meant a second game needed to be played.
