August Athletic Notes


There will be an All Sports Meeting for Parents and Students on Thursday, August 23rd at 7PM. Parents should meet in the gym and students should meet in the MPR. In the parent meeting, we will be discussing the Athletic Handbook and Policies and Procedures as well as have a Meet & Greet with the Coaches. In the student session, they will attend a Positive Coaching Alliance Workshop: Becoming a Triple Impact Competitor. This dynamic workshop defines what it means to be a competitor in terms of three important goals: make yourself better, make your teammates better, and make your sport better.

We will be saying goodbye to Alyssa Rossi our Athletic Trainer for the past three years as SGHS Athletics will be working with a new health care provider for our Athletic Training Needs moving forward. We will miss Alyssa and wish her the very best of luck in her future endeavors! We will be having a going away party for Alyssa in the next few weeks and introducing our new Athletic Trainer soon!

Tryouts have been going well and the fall teams are excited to get into the season. Volleyball and Field Hockey will be participating in preseason scrimmages the week of August 14th with all fall team official competitions beginning the first week of school.

SGHS Athletics welcomes new coaches for some of our teams this year! This fall, we have a new JV Volleyball coach in Erin Camody who is a former student-athlete at Tusculum University. We welcome back Melanie Tenney, a former two sport athlete from Lynchburg College who assisted the Varsity Softball team in the 2018 season as our JV Field Hockey coach this fall! We are also excited to announce our new Varsity Basketball Coach, Robyn D’Onofrio. Robyn is a former MVP from Norwich University and most recently was the head coach at the Steward School where she turned a a 11-12 record in 2017 to a 20-9 record, regular season TCIS Co-Championship and a Quarter Finals finish in the VISAA in 2018.
