Another ‘L’ for the Spikers’! (6/22)

by JJ Christopher in Announcement | Leave a comment


After leaving it all on the court, the Spikers’ came up short in week 5. The high speed winds and communication could be to blame. But don’t worry, the bye next week gives ample time to come back stronger than ever for game 6.

Spikers’ Losing Streak Continues! (6/15)

by JJ Christopher in Announcement | Leave a comment

After a hard fought battle, the Spikers fell again in Week 4. Even though Maher returned and gave it his best effort, and many solid dives, the team was no match for ‘Mr. Jersey Shore’s’ spikes. One positive was that serving was much better – hoping to keep that going for the rest of the year!

Congrats and Thank You to our 4th Annual Frank’s Little Murph Adventure Participants and Donors!

by JJ Christopher in Announcement | Leave a comment

First off, I am astounded by the support you guys showed over the last week for Frank’s Little Murph Adventure and The Arts of Life. It’s amazing that our little community can come together so quickly and raise a significant amount of money in such a short time. So for all that, JJ, Megan, The Arts of Life, and I and the rest of the D St. coaches truly thank you guys and gals from the bottom of our heart.

 

All the gushy stuff aside, let’s get down to the numbers. In the short amount of time that we posted on DSCF Members Only Forum we have raised a total of $1,477! That’s $1,140 from pre-donations and $337 from pledges for the athlete’s performances on Saturday. That is around a $650 increase from last year, which is absolutely amazing. Dang, I can’t thank you guys enough.

 

With that being said, please plan on bringing cash in before the end of the week. You can hand it off to myself or JJ preferably, but if neither of us are around then go ahead and give it to one of the coaches, they’ll know what to do with it.


Extremely grateful,

Coach Lucas

 Despite the return of several all-star Spikers alumni (Cassidy, Annelise, Katie, Ken), the squad was out-played by our opponents. We hope to up the enthusiasm next week by bringing back pre-game ‘Rock the Babies!’

This Wednesday, February 15th, an online store will go live where you will have the ability to select up to 8 different garments/styles of Under Armour gear with Division St. CrossFit branding.

Congratulations to Coach Meg and Coach Lucas on their recent engagement in Hawaii!

 

Coaches Meg and Lucas recently got engaged while vacationing in Hawaii and we couldn’t be more thrilled for them. And if it’s not exciting enough that two of our coaches are planning on tying the knot together, they are also the first couple who met under the roof of Division St. CrossFit to become engaged!

 

Congratulations again you two – we all look forward to our invites! 😉
