SENIOR ATHLETES INFORMATION FOR YOU

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. First of all I want to let you know that I am very sorry that your senior year came to just a quick halt. Your senior year should be your best year of school and you all were cheated out of part of that year. But I hope you all will take this batch of lemons and make lemonade out of it. Not sure if you realize it but you are the first class that I have gone through JH and HS together. You will always have a special place in my heart with the knowledge that you started in 7th grade the same year I became your Athletic Director.

Spring Senior athletes you should have gotten a google doc emailed to you that I hope you take some time to fill out and return a picture with the doc. We plan to honor one of you per day the rest of the spring starting next week. This form was sent to the 17 seniors that were listed on spring rosters. If you were missed please send an email to Mr. Thornburg and your coach telling us you did not get the google doc.

We plan to hand out spring awards in late May which will include your Letters for spring sports, Tri-Athlete Tee Shirts, Outstanding Athlete Plaques, Blanket Winners and Female/Male Senior Athlete of the year. Athlete of the year ballots will be sent out first of May by google doc watch for it and make sure you return your ballot. Not sure how the awards program is going to look like, but we will have it figured out and a plan announced later in May.

Make sure you are all engaged in your e-learning and stay safe and be healthy.

GO INDIANS!!!!

SPRING SPORT LETTERS WILL BE AWARDED

April 13, 2020 Union City---The Union City Athletic Department has decided that all high school athletes that had started in a spring sport and would have been on a spring sport roster will be awarded a UC VARSITY LETTER. These letter winners also had to be eligible at the end of the 3rd nine weeks which would have allowed them to compete in spring sports. Due to the circumstances we find ourselves in, it is beyond our athletes' control that they lost the opportunity to compete in their sport and represent Union City. They should not be penalized for this situation and we are excited to be able to award them their letters. We plan to hand out spring awards in late May which will include your Letters for spring sports and Tri-Athlete Tee Shirts. Not sure how the awards program is going to look like, but we will have it figured out and a plan announced later in May.

We were looking forward to watching you compete this spring and we know you would have represented Union City with pride and enthusiasm on the track, court and field of play. Thank You Indian athletes and coaches.

Make sure you are all doing your e-learning so you are ready to participate for the fall season, stay safe and be healthy.

GO INDIANS!!!!!
