The Trumbull High School Girls Cross Country team traveled to the Orlando area this past weekend to compete in the 23rd Disney Cross Country Classic at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. The Eagles, who are the 2019 FCIAC West Division champs and currently ranked 3rd in the state (according to coaching polls), continued their winning ways in more ways than one. On the course, the Varsity girls were the champions of the Large School Division race as runners: Emily Alexandru, Kali Holden, and Alessandra Zaffina were 2nd, 3rd and 4th overall, respectively. The JV team placed 3rd as a team in their division led by Erianna Gentile. Off the course, the girls volunteered for an afternoon and evening at the Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee, FL. The Village hosts children with critical illness and their families while they are in Florida. Many families from Connecticut have been there with their families through Make-A-Wish Connecticut. Coach Jim McCaffrey, whose family are alumni at the village, wanted to share the village with the team and provide them an opportunity to give back. The girls learned about the philanthropic mission of the Village, they toured the grounds, interacted with guests, and they provided dinner service in the cafeteria at the village. They served food, prepared salads, carried trays, bused tables, washed dishes, and shared smiles with the guests. Their actions for the entirety of the trip were a demonstration of the quality of character this town and this school system instill. They make Trumbull proud.

I hope everyone is enjoying summer! There are some changes for the 2019-2020 school year that I want to make you aware of to allow you some time to plan. The Board of Education recently approved a budget for the upcoming school year. One change moving forward is that the Pay to Participate fee has been increased to $165.00 per season with the exception of Ice Hockey which will be $365.00. The family cap will be $495.00 (+ $200 for every ice hockey player). In addition, this year the Pay to Participate fee will need to be paid in advance of try-outs. Payment can be made online via credit card at trumbullathletics.com when you register or paid in person with cash or check with Mrs. Haslam. Athletes not making a team will be reimbursed promptly after try-outs. If you have already made an $80.00 payment for a Fall sport, Mrs. Haslam has adjusted your account to reflect that initial payment. People requesting a fee waiver from the Superintendent need to do so prior to try-outs. The Waiver Request Form can be downloaded from the trumbullathletics.com website.
Please let me know if you have any questions and enjoy your summer.
