FIRST DAY OF TRYOUTS FOR SPRING SPORTS
To all of the high school athletes giving it their best shot at making a team this week, the reward to wear a spring sport uniform is usually reserved for the players who try their best, listen to the coach, and respect their teammates. As my dad always said, “give it your all, and if you don’t succeed, give it your all again!!!” Talent is important but so are the other qualities.
No doubt, there will be a plethora of wonderful stories about our talented TOWNIE kids this spring…please let me know about them (don’t forget to include action photos if you can) and let the kids have fun representing their schools, communities and families.
GOOD LUCK TOWNIES!!!
