Spring Sports Tryouts March 2 through March 4

Spring Sports are starting up even though it doesn’t feel like Spring! Don’t worry, it’s coming SLOWLY!

We are going to conduct tryouts this upcoming week as long as we are in school. If tryouts cannot happen outside on our fields we will utilize our gym space to complete tryouts. We realize that this is not the ideal situation, however, our coaching staff will be able to assess the skills necessary to choose the members of the teams.

Softball……..Monday March 2 through Wednesday March 4 from 3:30 to 5:30

*Baseball…….Monday March 2 through Wednesday March 4 from 5:30 to 7:30

**Girls Soccer…..Wednesday March 4 through Friday March 6 from 3:30 to 5:30

***Track………..Continues Monday March 2, assessments will continue all week

*For boys trying out for baseball we encourage them to go home and then return to school for the 5:30 start time, if a ride is a problem they can stay after school for a study hall session until tryouts begin (room assignment will be announced Monday)

**Our plan is for the girls to be outside on the field, if the field is still covered with snow or it is raining on any of those days we may move the girls inside or change the dates.

***Even though there may be snow on the ground the track will be clear. Coach Jones and Coach Brady will announce more details, please email them for more specific information.

The Winter Sports Season is coming to an end :(

GMS Basketball is officially finished for the year.

Our girls team finished the year 11 and 2! The best year ever at Goochland Middle School! They concluded the year by winning the Winter Tournament with resounding victories over Prince Edward and Cumberland! A great year!!!! Our boys finished the season with a 7-7 record. They lost 5 of their games by 4 points or less and made great strides as the year progressed. They also won 1st place in their Holiday Tournament! We wish the 8th boys and girls our best as they continue growing into fine young men and ladies. To the 6th and 7th graders, we can’t wait for next year to start! We are planning a great summer camp and even some fall activities to prepare you for the upcoming season.

Competition Cheer has one more competition coming up, Saturday February 21st at Caroline Middle School. We will post more details later.
