My Students

My students are athletes that compete in cross country and track. The teams consist of girls in grades fifth through twelfth. During cross country season I also run a community team for first through fourth grade students. In cross country, there are more than 30 students participating and over 100 during track season.

My students are enthusiastic, competitive, and driven to become better runners.

My students come from all walks of life but come together as a team and family.

My Project

My track and cross country teams are in the process of securing some new equipment and gear. We are in the process of getting new Adidas warm-ups and uniforms. The only thing we still need is backpacks for the girls to carry their gear in. This will allow us to make our new gear last longer and keep it clean at meets.

I'm requesting thirty Adidas drawstring backpacks.

This will be the first part of many projects to get backpacks for every athlete.

I will request all the athletes to​ keep up with the backpacks and take care of them in order to teach them responsibility. The Lady Eagles will love to have teams bags.

Thank you in advance for your contribution! Every little bit helps!
