Boys Varsity Lacrosse
Just a reminder the game against Erie is now 9am for JV and 11 am for Varsity. JV bus leaves at 7 am and Varsity bus leaves at 9 am. Please reach out with any questions. Thanks
Anyone who has still not picked up their spirit gear it is in the main office of WHS. Just bring in a check and EJ will be able to give you your gear. If you don't know how much you owe you can reach out to me via text (970-305-2913), Remind or just bring a blank check to the school. Helmets can also be picked up for $230. Even if you didn't order one you can still purchase one as we ordered extras. Thanks
We will be following the rest of the school's sports teams and moving our practices to mornings (10am-12pm). I understand this may be difficult for some but please understand this is not a normal season. Practices will be 10am-12pm for 5/31 (Voluntary due to Memorial Day) 6/1,6/3,6/4,6/7 and 6/8. There will be no practice 6/2 & 6/9 as Varsity has games these days. Additionally there will be offensive skills training for all offensive players, both JV and Varsity on Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 5:30, (6/1,6/3 & 6/8) w/ Coach KC. This is a great opportunity to work on dodging and shooting for all offensive minded players.
-JV has two games remaining: 10am 6/5 against Erie and 5pm 6/10 against Thompson Valley.
-Varsity has 4 games remaining: 4:15pm 6/2 against Dawson, 12pm 6/5 against Erie, 6pm 6/9 against Jefferson Academy and 7pm 6/10 against Thompson Valley.
***Playoffs will be decided Sunday 6/13 and I will post everything that I learn at that time.
Please reach out with any questions.
Our first away game is this Friday 5.7.21 at Air Academy. The bus leaves at 1:15 PM from WHS. I will email all the schools of players who don't attend WHS for early release. The Air Force base requires vehicle passes for entry for any parents coming down. I passed out hard copies to players today to give to parents. There is also a stack of gate passes with Carrie at the main entrance to WHS that can be picked up Thursday before 4 PM or Friday before you leave. It is my understanding that you must have a physical printed pass for each vehicle and that one on your phone will not be enough. Please let me know if there are any questions. Thanks
Please see the sign up genius link below for how to help out the team with post game/pre game snacks and meals. Everything must be pre-packaged and nothing that is "pot luck" style. Thank you for your support and please reach out with any questions! 970-305-2913
Our online team store is live until 4/29 at 10 PM. Nothing is required however the shooting shirt is suggested. Orders wll be placed thru Eastbay however payments will be made to the school. Also this is the time for helmet orders. They are the same white "R's" that the upperclassmen have. There are $220 and you need to reach out to me directly (970) 305-2913 so that I can get that added to the order. Thanks!

We have been invited to play in the Elevation League for anyone who is interested. Games will be Saturday mornings/early afternoons for each Saturday in April. Cost is $135 per player. Here is the link http://www.elevationlax.co/ Please shoot me a text (970-305-2913) or a Remind with either a YES or a NO if you would like to participate. Also we will continue to have practice this week at (4:30-6:30) Weds & Fri at WHS. Reach out with any questions. Thanks!
Hello Everyone, No practice today. I will keep everyone posted on the Elevation game for tomorrow, I would assume that we play and that there is enough snow melt by tomorrow night. The league will reach out by 1 PM tomorrow and let everyone know. I will also post on here and Remind. Thanks!
Here are some important notes as we get closer to season:
Registration for lacrosse is from April 10-21. PLEASE NOTE: The DEADLINE TO REGISTER is Wednesday, April 21!!!! To register, go to the WHS athletics website, click on the Spring Sports Registration tab, and CAREFULLY FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS! The athletic department will only accept completed registrations. Turn in all registration items to Mrs. Legino, Athletics Secretary to be able to pick up your sports permit! You must have a sports permit to practice/tryout on the first official day of practice on 4/26. Remember, the deadline to register is Wednesday, April 21.
In regards to eligibility: Athletes need to be enrolled in a minimum of 2.5 academic units (usually 5 classes, sometimes 6 depending upon the credits per class), in order to participate in sports. Also, if they received 2 F's on their posted 3rd quarter grades, these F's carry through 4th quarter (as part of their semester grades) and remain on the weekly eligibility report which makes them not eligible to participate.
Lastly we will be picking up steam with practices this week going Wednesday/Thursday & Friday this week at 4:30-6:30. Also the varsity game schedule is posted and is live, we are still working on finalizing the JV schedule and will post that as soon as it it finished. Thanks!
Sorry for the late notice, the turf field at WHS has been cleared and soccer is letting us use it for practice so we will go tomorrow at 4:30. Next week the snow should be gone and we should be back to normal field and schedule. Thanks!
Due to field conditions we will not have practice 3/17. I am waiting to see what options are available for 3/19 but as of now it is not looking likely. I will be in touch with any updates. Thanks
