 WARRIOR WEEKEND REPLAY

Varsity lost both games Monday but played the best they have yet against Lightning’s varsity. They placed 1st at their tournament in Madison, NE on Saturday! Way to go, girls!

JV won both of their games on Monday! Please pray for a couple of their girls who have ankle sprains. That they would bounce back quickly!

8AA has had some great games in the Lightning league with some great wins! They fought hard in their game Saturday but still lost. Good job continuing to improve ladies!

8B I am SO SO sorry that I didn’t include you in the email last week concerning your games! Last weeks email was kind of a mess but it was not intentional at all. =( Heidi has been telling me some exciting things about 8B! They currently have a winning record including their win on Monday against a good team! They scrimmaged against OCA on Thursday and won that game too. Keep up the great work!!

6B is continuing to grow as a unit! Even tho they didn’t win their game Saturday Coach Lauren said the you have started working more and more as a team. That is a beautiful thing girls! Keep working towards that!!

Volleyball Sports Banquet Slide Show Pictures Needed

This year we are planning our Volleyball Sports Banquet for sometime in November.Due to this fact, I have a very limited time to make slide shows for every volleyball team and our seniors. Your pictures are needed and appreciated as you take them. Our sports banquet for volleyball is tentatively set for November 20th!!

I’m looking for candid pictures, action shots from games or practice, pictures of the whole team, huddles, and pictures of the team just having fun! Selfies are great too;)

Please send me your favorite pictures to colorrunner02@gmail.com. If you would rather put your pictures on a flash drive or a CD, you can do that too. 

Thanks!

NATIONALS T-SHIRTS!  

ORDERS DUE THIS WED.  CHECKS DUE THURSDAY AT PRACTICE. 

Hey Warriors. The National shirt designs are beautiful and the selections and colors are fun. This year we are ordering our National shirts together at a discounted cost, so do NOT order online. Online costs are higher. You will, however, need to look at the online Nationals ARTFX shop to decide what you want. When you decide, place your ORDER HERE on this google sheet by Wednesday October 11. Bring your checks to pay for your shirts to practice the next day, Thursday October 12. Melanie Wamhoff will be placing orders. PLEASE BE ACCURATE AND FOLLOW DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY, SO THAT SHE DOES NOT HAVE TO CALL YOU.

NOTE:  Previously the spreadsheet did not have the cheaper costs for Warriors.  Please use the costs on the spreadsheet ..not on the website.  If you already ordered, Amy fixed the amounts for you, but you might want to double check.  If there is an error, just fix it. You have until Wed.  Now you can buy more Warrior wear because you have more money.  Apologies for that mishap.  That was no savings at all. 

Thank you, Warriors!

PIZZA POSTER PARTAY:   Are you looking at the Warrior calendar on the WARRIOR WEBSITE?    If you are, then you already know that the pizza poster party is OCTOBER 17TH 11:00-1:00.  Yes, practice is only 2 hours that day. Bring $5 for pizza plus. Bring Markers and pencils too.  Parents, you do not need to pick up your athlete until 1:00.
