Practice at Killens Pond
We are practicing at Killens Pond on Thursday, Aug. 28 - details on the calendar.  All of you know you are supposed to be bringing something to eat after practice every day, but I wanted to reemphasize it for this practice in particular.  The bus ride is about an hour and if you wait until you get home to eat, you will miss the critical post-workout window of time to get some calories back in your system.  Neglecting this impedes recovery.  

Traditional family/team tailgate at the Lake Forest Invitational, Saturday, Sep. 6.  Details soon.  

LABOR DAY WEEKEND
