#LUKESTRONG Night was a success in raising awareness of Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare childhood cancer.  But most importantly to show support for Luke Blanock who has stayed strong in his battle against this disease and to help raise money to go towards his medical costs. We are pleased to announce that a total of $1400 was raised for Luke and his family in monetary donations, concession stand proceeds, t-shirt sales, and 50/50 winnings.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Luke and his family during his ongoing battle with Ewing's Sarcoma.

WEIGHT ROOM TRAINING starts January 9, 2014

Pre-season conditioning will take place every Tuesday & Thursday from 6-7 in the weight room beginning on January 9th and continue through February 2014.

If a player is not able to make any of the scheduled nights, please let Coach Schleifstein know in advance.
