Crowd Limits and Sports Passes
There will most likely be a limit on crowds/fans at all athletic events. That decision should become clear to all Morgan County Schools by the middle of next week (Aug 11-12) as we receive guidance from the Morgan County Board of Health. Sports pass orders will be on hold until we receive this guidance. Thank you for being patient.
Meet the Bulldogs - Brandy Crum, Athletic Trainer
1. Where did you go to high school? College?
High School: Fountain Central Jr/Sr High School. Home of the Mustangs
College (undergrad): Purdue University. Boiler Up!
College (masters): Idaho State University
2. Tell us about your family.
I’m married. My spouse and I will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary in October. We have 2 spoiled goldendoodles, Jazz and Brees. We live in Brownsburg and enjoy going to concerts and national parks. I have 2 nieces and 1 nephew and a whole slew of extended family as my mom is one of eight children.
3. What are your hobbies?
I love exploring National parks, cross word puzzles, attending concerts. My all time favorite concert was Brandi Carlile and I will see Joan Jett, Styx, Journey, and REO any time they come.
4. Who is your hero?
That’s a tough one. My grandma is definitely one of them. She would always tell me that I could do anything. My parents, I wouldn’t be half the person I am today without their unending support.
5. What is your favorite meal?
It’s a tie with tacos and my aunt Kathy’s homemade tortillas and enchiladas.
6. What is your favorite zoo animal?
Giraffes although Fiona the hippo is so fun to watch.
7. What is your favorite board game?
Does apples to apples count? (yes it does)
8. What is your favorite Movie? Fav TV Show?
Movies: I can’t pick just one, The Sound of Music, Twister, and Dazed and Confused. I could watch any of those a thousand times.
TV Show: Wynonna Earp, Scorpion and Big Bang Theory.
9. What would be your ‘go-to’ song on karaoke night?
Joan Jett is a pretty solid choice, I don’t think you can lose with I Love Rock ‘N Roll.
10. What is your most memorable moment as an athletic trainer?
I had a student-athlete that I noticed a curious spot on her arm. I spoke with her mom and pushed her to have it checked out. Turns out it was cancerous. Doctors told them that had it not been caught when it was they would be having conversations around chemo, etc. I’ve never had a parent cry and hug me so hard. Times like that is when I know that I really make a difference in my kids lives.
11. Think back to when you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to work with animals. Pigs are my favorite and I love ocean life.
12. What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Never stop learning and being curious. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been doing something there’s always things to learn.
13. What is your favorite quote?
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” While I don’t believe in other being inferior I think these are words to live by.
“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”
14. Who was your favorite coach, and why?
Dave Shondell, head women’s volleyball coach at Purdue, he is a very genuine person. I love his coaching style and the way he interacts with his student-athletes. It’s no surprise why his program has had so much success.
15. What’s the best thing about being a part of the Monrovia Bulldogs Community?
I have loved getting to know the kids. I come from a small town similar to this. It’s fun seeing the support of the town for the kids here. I’ve gotten to know parents and kids that aren’t even athletes.
Bulldog Hydration Filling Stations
With Governor Holcomb’s recent announcement of the state-wide mask mandate, the Monrovia Athletic Department is required to put the following Mask Policy in place, beginning on Monday July 27th.
Masks MUST be worn by coaches and athletes when...:
▪️ arriving at and leaving school buildings
▪️ attending team meetings that take place before, after, and during practices
▪️ not actively participating in practice/workouts (sidelines, bench, waiting in line for a drill, etc.)
▫️ Masks may be removed when actively participating in strenuous activity (practice, workouts, games
▫️ Masks may be removed during hydration breaks
▫️ Proper social distancing should continue to be practiced, when possible. There will be many questions regarding masks as we get closer to the start of the Fall season and we will try to answer them and give our best explanations. Please be patient as we implement these new policies.
▫️ Gaiters, face shields or buffs are recommended for athletes as they are the easiest to remove and re-cover during activities
▫️ Athletes, please continue to do your best to comply so that we can have a 2020-21 sports season.
Pre-Screening for Athletes & Staff
Student-athletes and coaches are required to complete these Daily Pre-Screening Questionnaires before each day they workout/practice/participate with their team.
