ATHLETICS

To our Athletics family,

We saw this coming, but prayed it wouldn’t be this way. Many of you have questions and we’re hoping that this will answer most of them.

CMAC Volleyball (U14 – Varsity): As of right now, every other CMAC school is in the same predicament as we are. With schools going online that means no practices and cancellations of every game scheduled in the next two weeks. CMAC is working on alternate dates for the tournament. However, May is a very busy month for us due to APs, final exams and grad. With all that being said, we are NOT saying season’s over so hold on to your jerseys — we’re doing everything we can.

Third Season Soccer: Unfortunately, the Alpine Tournament has been cancelled and so have games leading up to the tournament. This sadly means that third season soccer is finished. Players, please turn in your jerseys to the Athletic office on Monday, April 19th when you go collect materials for school. If you’re not going in on Monday, be on the lookout for the next alternate date.

Tri Sport: Tri sport families and athletes, you should have received an email from our Department with updates on all things Tri Sport so please check your inboxes!

Closed Campus: Due to MOE guidelines and restrictions, our facilities are closed until further notice. This means our fields, courts and weight room will not be available for training or rental.

We are so sad to have to cancel games, seasons, and tournaments yet again and disappointed for our athletes (especially our seniors), but we are so grateful for everything that we were able to do and be a part of this year.
