Old School; Three generation picture

A tale of three Mascots; Dave class of 2003, Christian class of 2012, and Brett class of 2007.
If we just had Todd and Kenny here it could've been an "all-Cujo" reunion!

A whole month off for Christmas break, college must be rough!

Sorry Charter Oak-Ute, we've got game

Tonight is the night we will blow you away.

Air Vicky; non-stop flights only, no beverage service

One of these days, Kensie's gonna bust her chin doing that- ow!

Here we thought we'd try another game for pep rallies, one somebody learned from the FFA teacher, but obviously it kinda fell apart at the end. Photo by Sasha

More Westwood

Ow! How can anyone kick that high?

The Juniors have to ham for the cam.

Is there a problem? "Yeah, about that...

Wild at Westwood

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

Yeah, about that...

Both Varsity and Jr High basketball games are canceled for tonight.

Of course, this Saturday may be the only date available to make this game up, I will try to keep you posted. This weekend is my daughter Ellen's birthday, so if we do have a make up game, I may not be there.

Good news, I have your hoodies, tees, and sweats.
Bad news, since I won't be at school tomorrow, you won't get them till Thursday! Sorry.

I will send you this news via email and maybe Facebook. I hate making phone calls, but I suppose I'll do that too here within the hour.

See you someday,

No decision yet about tonight

No Jr Hi game tonight.

The School tells me that Coach Pete will make a decision about tonight's Varsity game sometime around 1 PM

I will email you, post it on the web, and make phone calls as soon as I know if it is canceled, meanwhile just assume that we're still on and try to be at school by around 4:30 again.

I am a snow/ice driving coward myself, and your safety is important to me,  so if you parents prohibit you from coming tonight, I won't count it against you as far as lettering goes.

Just a reminder that I won't be at school tomorrow because my daughter has a therapy session for her double-vision in Omaha, so there won't be any practice.

My home phone is 678-3397 and my cell # is 269-5853 if you or your parents have any questions.

See you... eventually
Be warm and well,

Video from IKM game

Funny, back when I was coaching at LA Lutheran, I'd go out of my way to try to tape one or two entire games and have girls watch themselves so they'd know what they needed to improve on. Now I post a digital video clip that's only a few second long just for the heck of it because I think kids will think it's amusing. Takes forever to upload though, that part's a pain.

Fun with camera settings

Congrats to BV Cheer Alumn

The Dec. 6 Dunlap Reporter had a familiar face on the front page. Aleigh, BV class of '05 is working on her doctorate of veterinary medicine at ISU won Miss Rodeo Iowa 2008!
Way to go "Aleigh-Gator!"


Try not to kick yourself in the eye!

What's so funny?

Awesome time-outs and quarter-breaks!

How 'bout that reindeer jump? Rudolph's got nuthin on this girl!

♥ Thanks for the great hospitality
♣ Are there really only 2 of you?

Boyer Valley
♥ Wow, that much better in just one game, without any serious practicing!
♣ Soak your larynx!
♦ GREAT jumps & Kicks
♠ Stunting

Merry Christmas

They're $65
Whenever you're able to pay, you can take your pair.
Tees and hoodies are due in next week.

First Varsity Game

Here we were at Manning, practicing a splits-mount in the hall before the game, and chanting away at the girl's game.

Coach's quick critique:
♥=loved it ♣=problem ♦=asset ♠=need to work on
Great over all effort, especially for a first game. Great teamwork
♣ ¿Dondé está Sasha y Brittany? No está aqui. ¿Por que no?
Good pitch, fast learners, work well together, awesome planning & creativity
Need to be LOUDER!

Learning from the opposition

I don't usually put pictures of other squads on this blog, and Manning wasn't necessarily the greatest thing I've ever seen (they're not awful either) but I did want to point out at least two things we can learn from them-

Here they're in a prep during a time out- no HUGE achievement, but notice what they're doing that we haven't managed yet. They're leading a chant while in the prep, not just doing a chant that leads up to one. Takes stamina, kudos to them.

Here they're doing the same slpits-mount that we were working on with Kristen. Notice, the side bases have her hands and arms, not her thighs. She does a great job of pointing her toes too. Kudos again. We'll get it too, we just have to practice.

Over all, good job Manning Red-Dogs-
♥ strong stunts, great pitch, very synchronized
♣ painfully slow tempos

Just want to remind you that there is an away game in Manning tomorrow night (Tues 12/4) .

I understand that it's cold and that it's a lot to have to wear your uniform all day twice a week, so please plan on wearing your uniforms on Friday, but do dress up or at least wear BV/purple, black,white tomorrow to school, but be sure to bring your uniform to wear to the game.

Hope you had a great weekend,


Just a reminder, if you can make it, there is a JrHi Girl's Basketball game in Dow City at 4 this afternoon, even though there wasn't school.

No Game tonight

Varsity; I'm just about to call the three of you who aren't in Des Moines with the Drill Competition. Mrs. Pippett just called me. Tonights game v. MVAO has been postponed till TBA. They're talking about Monday night already, but don't think they can get referees in time.

See you Tuesday, be safe, warm, and dry!
