All went well. Information was sent out. Thanks to all who helped out.

 

d. Track and Field County C.P.A. Ray Robertson

All went well and thank you to all schools, everyone stepped up. It is suggested that coaches look at who their athletes are and make sure they can meet some sort of minimum standard. Possibly look at results from previous years and see if their athlete can meet a minimum standard.  Jason Murphy might be the guy to look into this and post some of these standards.

 

e. Softball MILL Adam White

Passed out the information. Both leagues grew this year. Parking fines were given out. Schedule was a bit of an issue with 11 teams. Rankings from the year before was used to make pools. Weather is always an issue as well.

All went well. The league is growing.  Scott will send out and email from Brendon.
