Fall Sports Information

Cross country practice will begin Monday, August 19.  Practice will be from 3:00-4:30 after school five days a week.  There will be some exceptions to this, which will be noted in a practice schedule athletes will receive as the season gets underway.
PLEASE make sure that you have a current physical on file in the office BEFORE practice on August 19th.  Students CANNOT participate without a physical on file.
Athletes will need to wear running shoes and dress appropriately for running outside regardless of the weather conditions.  It is also recommended that they bring a water bottle as we often are running some distance from the building and as a general rule do not come inside for water breaks. 
The cross country team meets in the commons area at 3:00 to begin practice as the locker rooms are being used for volleyball and football.
There are not “tryouts” for cross country.  All runners make the team.  
We will have 7 cross country meets.  Race distance is 2 miles for all runners.
If you have any questions, you can email me at
I am looking forward to another great CC season at BLMS!

Tryouts will be on Monday and Tuesday, August 19th and 20th, from 3-5 pm. If your daughter makes the team, we will let them know on the 20th and provide her with the necessary papers/schedule/etc that day.
Players will need to wear athletic wear, knee pads, and tennis or volleyball shoes, with their hair pulled up for tryouts.
It is imperative that your child has a physical completed for this school year before coming to tryouts. If your daughter does not have a physical, she cannot participate in the tryout; therefore, she cannot make the team if she isn't there for the two tryout dates.
If you have volleyball specific questions please email head coach Erin Tegtmeier at
Equipment Check Out will be held on Friday, Aug. 16th from 3 - 4 pm at the BLMS gym.  There will be no practice on this day, just checking out equipment. If you can’t make it on this day, you can pick up equipment on Monday, Aug. 19th.  


Practice will begin on Monday August 19th, practice will be from 3-5 pm.  The first day of practice will only be t-shirts and shorts. All students will need an up-to-date (taken after May 1, 2019) physical to participate on the first day.  All 7th and 8th grade students are welcome to come out for football. If you have any questions please feel free to email Coach Holland at
