Districts Week!

All right, everyone. It's the main event! Congrats on a good regular season, girls, and the completion of a couple team goals (shutouts, W/L record). Plus, 2nd place in a traditionally tough OK Green Conference ain't too shabby either. :) Well done.

But...we want to be GREAT...and we've got a true challenge(s) ahead of us.

We want to be District champs...and we want to continually stay tight/close as a team through and through (remaining team goals)!

Let's. Do. This.

Here's the tentative schedule for the upcoming week:

**Monday (Memorial Day): required 5-7 PM training on the turf. Wear gray.
**Tuesday: Team Event...bus leaves lower lot @ 2:45 PM and will return 8-830 PM. Meal and cover cost for the Byron Center game = provided for you. More details Memorial Day/Monday!
**Wednesday: 3-5 PM training on the turf...wear gray.
**Thursday: District Semifinal vs. ??? at 7 PM on our turf. More details to come...  If anyone would like to volunteer for a stellar team meal on this day, it would be much appreciated! Just let me know asap!
**Friday (tentative): 3-5 training on the turf...wear gray.
**Saturday(tentative): District Final @ 5 PM on our turf...

Can't wait. Can't wait. Can't wait.

Finish Hamilton strong, girls!

Upcoming Week!

Hawkeyes!

The last regular season week is upon us...and it's a big one for a variety of reasons!

Can we finish second in the OK Green?...
Can we handle an emotional, improved Z. East on their field for their Senior Night?...
Can we knock off unbeaten (in the OK Green) Unity on OUR Senior Night?...
Can we handle the (fun) distractions of Graduation/No School For Seniors/Upcoming Holiday Weekend?...
Can we finish the regular season in a Hamilton strong way?...
Can we do positive things we SAY we want to do on a continual basis?...
Can we continually work on the things that will make us even tighter/close as a team?...
Can we do what champions do on a continual basis?...
Etc.

Big. Week. :)

**Monday: game at Z. East...meet in my room at 3:30...bus leaves at 4:15...Jen = team meal.
