Greetings, Scorpion Nation!
I first heard the term "Come with Me" teammate from a keynote speaker at a conference I attended years ago. The individual spoke of a teammate he had that lived and played selflessly. He credited his teammate for helping him "get better". Not only on the field, but also in life. You can see the impact this teammate had on this individual's life, and he would always be thankful for it.
I imagined someone who said, "Come with me to the weight room. Come with me to run that extra lap. Come with me to review for the test. Come with me to fix whatever needs fixing. Come with me to do better." Someone who focuses on making himself/herself and the team GREAT. Be a "Come with Me" teammate. Be the person who encourages, who invites, who gives their time to others in order to help EVERYONE get better. WE before ME!
The Upper School Ski Team had another great day of racing this past Tuesday at Mt. Rose! Senior Elena Albregts finished 5th overall, Maddy Dutton came in 20th, and Kira Romberg finished 36th! This is out of 60 racers in the girls division!
For the boys team, Logan Reeves found himself on the podium again with a solid 3rd place overall! Nathan Barth landed in the top 20 at 18th, Eric Albregts finished 26th, Noah Grady 43, Austin Schler 44 (photo below), and Gilbert Patterson 50. Great job to Coach Kirkwood and all our Scorpion Ski Racers!
The Boys Basketball Team traveled to Sacramento this past Saturday to participate in a non-league game with our fellow college preparatory school, Sacramento Country Day! After a few years of trying to put this game together, we finally made it happen! BIG bragging rights at stake with this game! At the end of the 4th quarter, final buzzer, Sage Ridge 40 - Sacramento Country Day 34! Later that evening, coaches, players, parents, and friends attended a very exciting Sacramento Kings vs San Antonio Spurs game at Golden One! In the words of O'Shea Jackson (AKA Ice Cube), I gotta say it was a good day!
