News and Announcements
Parents and Players,
First I would like to extend a congratulations to the entire team for the effort since the second half of Saturday’s game thru this game. We needed this win badly and you found the strength to persevere and respond when the situation demanded it. That takes 11 girls with focus and for that I am very grateful.
I want to also say thank you Megan’s Mom and Dad for their generous breakfast, Alex is still working off the sugar high.
This is a very busy week for members of this team. Six members of our team will be playing seven games this week. That means we need the other girls to step up during our three games this upcoming weekend. There will be players very tired, so we just need to be vocal and communicate when they are tired so we can keep the fresh legs running.
I fully expect a 3-0 weekend, no excuses.
Practice: Thursday Night 8 to 9:30 pm @ Crossroads South (I can not move this due to gym and player availability)
Friday – 8 PM @ Green Brook 105 Andrew Street, Green Brook, NJ 08812 (Coach Eddie and Coach Sid will be in charge)
Saturday – 10 AM @ Manalapan Sharks – Monroe Sports Center Yellow Court
Saturday – 5:45 PM vs Basking Ridge White – Crossroads Middle School North
Please let me know if you won’t be attending any games this weekend. I know there are a couple of conflicts so we just need to prepare for those as much as possible.
Dear Parents and Players,
We are the half way thru the season and the upcoming weekend is very big for our team.
Thursday January 29 @ 8 pm Crossroads South
Saturday 12pm at Washington, 2093 NJ-57, Hackettstown, NJ (make up game from picture night) Black Uniform
Saturday 4:30pm vs Flemington Crossroads North White Uniform
Sunday 8am at Monroe Sports Center against Purple Black Uniform
These are three good opponents and we are going to give 100 percent. Make sure the girls are well rested. Based on how the girls have practiced and performed most recently I expect our team to play their best basketball of the season this weekend.
Thank you for your patience, support and assistance.
