INFORMATIONAL MEETING: Thursday, January 9th, at 2:30pm in the High School Cafeteria for all high school students interested in trying out for the baseball teams this spring. This meeting will include information on remaining off-season workouts, academic expectations, what to expect during tryouts, and to fill out an informational sheet for Coach Evans. This will also give everyone a chance to meet our varsity and junior varsity coaches if they have not already met. If you have practice after school, see Coach Evans at 2:15 in the cafeteria to get one of the handouts and your player info sheet to fill out and then you can head to practice. All of those interested in trying out should be in attendance. The meeting will last about 15 minutes.
