At noon today we gathered for a special sendoff for the softball team and track athletes who are heading to STATE! Thanks to everyone who came out to support our athletes. We had teachers, parents, other athletes, students from Cotter and WACS, and several from the Winona community. Sr. Judy, Coach Bowlin, and Coach Jewison spoke, Father Jim gave a blessing, our boosters handed out goodie bags, and our band, under direction of Andy Meurer, played "Go Big Blue!"
A special thanks to all of the parents who took time out of their day to attend. We know there have been long car rides to games and meets, too many rides to practices to count, lots and lots of food money, late nights and early mornings. We certainly appreciate all you do for your kiddos to help them succeed!
The softball team kicks off the state tourney tomorrow at 11am in Mankato against St. Peter. If they win they will play again at 5pm. If you can't attend the games Leighton Broadcasting will be live on KG Country 1380 and 101.5 FM.
Friday at Hamline University, Claire Nichols will compete in the long jump around 3:30pm. Garet Grant, Grace Ping, and Lauren Ping will run the 3200 around 7pm. Saturday, Grace and Lauren will run the 1600 around 5pm.
We will do our best to keep everyone updated via social media.
Good luck, Ramblers!!!
