Seniors,

 

Congratulations on the completion of your high school lives. Graduation is always filled with many emotions from sadness to thrill and I hope that each of you embrace that complete range of emotions. I want to say thank you for being tremendous leaders. The Class of 2020 track athletes have always displayed qualities of leadership that have put our track team in a great place for the future. Although our season this year was very brief, it was immensely memorable. Personally this year was one of the most memorable; not because of the obvious reason, but in terms of my enjoyment coaching this team. This team had a closeness that others before were not as fortunate to share. From birthdays to team gatherings this team was united in a very unique way. I will cherish those memories as a coach and I thank you, Class of 2020, for making this group a TEAM!

The impact of this senior group on our Redondo Track and Cross Country teams will surely be missed. These seniors have watched over our teams for four splendid years. These seniors have been wonderful examples of hard work, self-motivation, and inclusive leaders.  These are characteristics valued in our programs. And these characteristics were on display at every practice and meet.

Not having our seniors finish their seasons this year has been difficult for a group that worked so hard and deserved better. Of course, these are unique circumstances but, nonetheless, the coaches and support staff are heartbroken we did not have the opportunity to coach these amazing student-athletes for the conclusion of their time at Redondo Union.

We hope you may find the time to honor them today at our Senior Drive-By.  These splendid young people have been exceptional teammates and leaders that will greatly be missed.

Sincerely,

Bob Leetch

Seniors Drive-by

Posted on May 29, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Hi RUHS Track & Field Families,

 

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  These past few months have been a challenging time for everyone, in particular, the graduating seniors.

 

At first, the booster board was not sure if we could organize a celebratory drive-by for our graduating seniors.  After several attempts with the school, we decided to go ahead with the celebratory drive-by around Alta Vista Park.  Please see the map below for the route.  Please drive-by and give the seniors a proper send-off.

 

Date:  June 4th

Time: 5:00 to 5:30

 

We request that the seniors arrive at 4:45 to line up on the grassy area on Serpentine Street. Please bring a mask.

 

Hope to see you all there.

Dear Families,

I’ve had several parents tell me that they’re unable to find the meet photos from their cell phone.  Scroll down to bottom and change to desktop version. Hope that works.
