Roller coaster weather makes for a hit or miss sports schedule... With the recent weather fluctuations, some spring sports events have happened while others have been cancelled.  Since the last update, here is what has been going on...hopefully, I don't miss anything...
  • Girls Golf - The girls were able to golf this past week vs. WSR and Charles City and placed 3rd in an added tournament at Nashua-Plainfield last night.  They travel to Jackson Jct. for a meet today.  The big news is that Crestwood will host first round regionals at the Cresco Country Club on May 19th...more details to come on this.
  • Boys Golf - The boys competed in tournaments at Decorah and Waverly last week and won the Waverly tournament.  Congrats!  They also defeated Charles City in a dual this past Monday and will also travel to Jackson Jct. today.
  • Boys Track - The boys track team has had a bit of a gap in their schedule with the cancellation of the MFL Meet this past Thursday.  They next compete at the home Co-Ed Meet on May 1st.
  • Girls Track - The girls track team hasn't had much better luck as they have lost two meets to weather this past week as they were also scheduled to go to MFL last Thursday and North Fayette last night.  However, the home girls invitational went off without a hitch on Tuesday, and the Cadet girls performed very well and came away with the team championship by scoring 171 points.  Great job girls!!!!  It is the first time the girls have won their home invitational since the early 90's.  The girls next are scheduled at Waukon on Tuesday and at the home Co-Ed Meet next Thursday.
A special thanks to all for the great help at the home girls meet.  We ran a very smooth meet and it is because of the experienced workers!!

**The jr. high teams have also started their competitive season with one meet each.  Hopefully, the weather will cooperate for them as well.

Elementary Track Program... Karen Steffen and I, along with high school track team members, are also running a 4th-5th-6th grade track program for girls and boys on Monday nights.  We had our first night last Monday and had over 50 kids attend.  The energy level was high and we had a lot of fun!  There is no cost for this program.  We meet at the stadium at 5:30 and go until 7:00.  If kids didn't make it last Monday, they can come next Monday.  Hopefully, the weather cooperates for this as well.  We will meet the next 3 Mondays (April 28, May 5, May 12).  On May 12th we will have our track meet.

Have a great, safe weekend!!!!
