MIDDLE SCHOOL BASKETBALL INFO NIGHT – MONDAY, OCTOBER 9
Due to the early start of Middle School Boys Basketball (November 6), the Athletic Department will hold an information night and tryout session for boys in grades 5-8 on Monday, October 9 at 6:00 pm. All parents will meet with the AD in a designated classroom while all participants will be evaluated for team placement. Our goal is to provide a team at each competitive level within the North Suburban Parochial School League. The top level of this league is considered to be the competitive team and tryouts will be used to determine which players are ready for that level of play. This team will be by tryout only, capped at 10 players and may require additional time commitment and fees for tournaments. Eighth graders returning to the high school team do not need to attend this evening. Eighth graders new to the high school program should reach out to Head Coach Josh Olson to confirm placement on the Boys C-Squad team for the 2017-18 season.
BASKETBALL: GIRLS (Begins November 13)
The Girls Basketball Team will be led by 1st year LCA Coach Arthur Crutch. The team will look to returning seniors Erin Bredemus, Jadyn Nelson, and Lauren Steffen to set the tone for their season. We will be offering JV and Varsity teams for students who are in 9th-12th grade. If girls in 7th and 8th grades are interested in trying out for the high school teams, please contact the coaching staff for information and plan to attend captains practices the week prior to the season start date.
Note: Middle School Girls Basketball will begin Monday, December 4. Practice dates/times TBD once coaching staff is secured.
