State Champ T-Shirts

Parents and supporters,
We would like to order State Champions t-shirts Tues. Oct.27. The athletes have already ordered theirs, but if you would like to order a shirt, tell your athlete what size or flash me an e-mail to with sizes and quantities. Once we know the number of shirts, we'll figure out the cost to be paid at the financial window. We also still have a few Red AF ball-caps which are $10 - pay at the financial window and bring me the receipt.
