Message from the Athletic Director

 

Fall break means that most students get a little extra time to kick back, relax and enjoy some downtime.  But Bulldog athletes stay in high gear all week long.  Each of our fall teams are still practicing at least 5 days a week for multiple hours a day and most are preparing for the much anticipated, post season.  It's not easy being an athlete at the middle and high school levels. It requires careful time management, a balance of academics, sports and a  motivation to work out when everyone else is sleeping in. That's why they say, 'Sports don't build character... they reveal it'. 

 

-Athletic Director, Jana Fraser

A handful of LJA XC runners volunteered on Oct. 6th, at the Children's and Youth Day Fun Run. LJA's very own senior Gianna  Sabarbaro was director of the run this year with over 130 keiki runners. This event takes a full year's worth of planning involved with getting permits, hiring HPD, planning the race route, managing the race packets and sound system, getting raffle donations, awards etc. It was so great that the cross country ohana helped out. They all just want to share their passion for running with our keiki. 

The Fall Sports Athletic Banquet will be December 7th, 5:30pm in the Wang. All 7-12th athletes who competed in a fall sport are welcome.
