Message from the Athletic Director

 The theme of the Athletic Department this year is Grit. This attribute was chosen because it is such a useful tool to have in one's pocket as the challenges of life continually dish out adversity. Athletes are in a position to be tested every day they step onto the field, the floor, or the mat. Rarely are we in positions in sport where everything is going smoothly and moving along without a hitch. Instead, a more realistic picture is that of a student-athlete who has to constantly start again, adjusting or adapting to obstacles that prevent them from competing in an ideal environment. So it seems appropriate that instead of running from difficult situations, we learn how to harness our grit and face it head on.
Go Bulldogs!

Here is a message from Coach....


I am excited to be coaching the golf team again this year. Last year we had students that ranged from advanced to beginning golfers. Our goals were to have fun, learn the game, improve their skills and to enjoy the competition. All of our golfers seemed to enjoy the season, so we will be out to do the same again this year. We will have Varsity and Intermediate teams for boys and girls. We also are fortunate to have Patrick Boyce returning along with Brett Fillmore as our assistant coaches. We will have a pre season meeting where you can ask any questions you may have about the team and our schedules. You may also reach me via email or phone. Mahalo for all those who played last year, and we are looking forward to a great season for the golfing Bulldogs this year!
