The students, guided by coach C,  worked hard  almost every school day during WIN (New name for RTI) and an hour after that.  They sacrificed many, many saturday mornings.  I am the new member of team.  I stepped in when the other coach left for a new job over the holidays.  Students’ enthusiasm and teamwork resulted in…..

Drumroll time…….

    • Yes,

      The kids are so enthusiastic 🙂

      We had a senior and a sophomore on team. Rest of the team i freshmen some of whose siblings have participated.

      Mr. C is participating in Rube as a mentor since its inception so he is an old pro. Being a new mentor, I am learning from and with kids.

      Best wishes.

      It is fun and exciting. We have a very supportive administration, shop teacher who gives us free rain of the shop, good kids and equally supportive parents which helps.
