Student athletes participating today were:

Coach Caldwell shared, “The idea for today was for the kids to have fun and prove to themselves that they are capable of more than they think.  I was very proud of the turnout, attitudes and effort today and so far this summer.  The theme for the month of June has been discipline.  I hope the kids will continue to be disciplined over the next couple Moratorium weeks and run on their own each day.  Any one wanting to begin running with us, Open Runs will begin again July 15 at 7:30 AM.  We meet at the Cleat House.”

Great job CC Bruins!!
