Dear Parents & Student Athletes,
Much like the old British empire, we are getting to the point where we can say, "the sun never sets on Ireton athletics" as we saw our rowers slogging through the mud of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, our track & field team racing around the all- weather track at the WCAC championship meet, and, of course, the historic week of girls' lacrosse. From College Park to Richmond, Coach Rick Sofield's girls won the, "6 games in May" they pointed toward all season. With that accomplishment, they became the first ever team here to win a WCAC and VISAA championship in the same season! Congratulations!
Don't forget, our Varsity Athletic Awards banquet is May 28th at 7 pm at the Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria.   Get your tickets now for the annual gala! Contact Matt Horton or better yet, go online to make your reservations!
Congratulations to our five athletes honored by the Alexandria Sportsman's Club as the "athlete of the year" in their sport.  Selected for recognition at their annual awards banquet on May 29th, are the following:
Adrienne Maday, soccer,
Stephanie Cabrera, volleyball
Hayley Snell, swimming
Charlotte Sofield, lacrosse
Audrey Sisel, rowing


Looking at summer camps to prepare for next season? One great way to get to know a potential college program and its coaches is to attend one of their summer camps. It also gives them a great opportunity to see you perform in a variety of settings.  


With another school year of athletics essentially completed, it is a good time to help your athlete reflect on their experience.  It is a good time for parents to listen; are they having fun, is it becoming work, are they excited about next year? If not, why not?  High school sports are challenging, it is hard work at this level to be successful; as in life, you won't get much "out" if you don't put much "in". But no one is on scholarship, it shouldn't be "drudgery".

With summer just around the corner, being aware of environmental dangers during outdoor activities is essential to ensure the safety of children and student-athletes. Click on this helpful link from the National Athletic Trainers Association on Heat Illness for Parents and Coaches. We use these here at Bishop Ireton to help monitor the conditions our athletes perform in, to prevent injury and help keep our students safe. Have a great summer and stay safe.
