It has been nice now that the pre-season seeding jamboree is over to get back into a regular practice schedule routine. All of the teams have been working hard and getting better as well as putting in some new things for the regular season. Unfortunately it wont be long before things get hectic again and many nights will be spent touring Wichita and the surrounding areas. The game schedules are available in the events tab of this blog down on the right hand side. It should have all the games as well as school locations of where the games will be played. It also will say which color of jersey we are scheduled to wear for that game. If your child wears a t-shirt or compression shorts under their uniforms they need to be same color as the color we are wearing. Please let coaches know if your child will not be able to be at a game and also if they will not be a practice especially if they were at school that day.
The basketball schedules are now posted on the calendar portion of the blog. The 6th grade girls will open the schedule on Saturday December 9 at Resurrection against St. Joe Ost. The 7-8 grade girls will also play on that date at 2:00 p.m. against St. Francis and also at St. Francis.

The C.S.A.L. Pre-Season Basketball Jamboree ended today and all of our teams have been placed in a division. The Sixth Grade Girls will be in the lower division and the three other teams in the upper division. The next step will be an initial schedule developed then the league AD's will meet to go over the schedule and then it will be released. Hopefully we will have it by the end of the week. I will have them posted in the calendar of the blog as soon as they are released. Pictures from the boy's team are below
