This Week in Blue Hawk Volleyball!

Hello Hawks!

Here’s hoping everyone’s first day of school is a great one!  With the new year comes afternoon practices and matches.   The Boosters have requested we meet on Wednesday, August 30 at 6:00 pm in the Morissette Room (just inside the front entrance of the high school and to the left of the cafeteria).  A copy of the agenda will be available soon but some of the general things we will discuss are:

  • Food & Drink for away games
  • Concession for Home Games
  • Fundraising
  • Apparel for the players/coaches
  • Senior Night
  • Dig Pink Night (Cancer Awareness)
  • Program development
  • Team Parents

On Tuesday, the Varsity will travel to Oyster River for a Jamboree.  The schedule of play is as follows:

We play (in order):

  • 4:00: Portsmouth

Hello Hawks,

Just wanted to let everyone know we have updated the calendar to include all of next weeks events (practices and scrimmages) for all three teams.  Remember to subscribe to the email list if you want email notifications when we post to this site (see box to the right of this post).

The best way to stay up to date is to check the “Schedule” Page on this website!  That is the only way you can assure you have the latest changes and updates.  I have included a link to the current schedule if you would like to print it with the explicit warning that things can, and likely will, change!  Aug 21 – 26 Schedule for Printing.

Special Dates and Times (other than practices):

Thursday, August 24th – 4:00 pm – 7:30 pm – JV and Varsity Home Tri-Scrimmage with Epping and St. Thomas

Saturday August 26th – 9:00 am – 1:00 pm – Varsity Jamboree Away at Spaulding High School

Tuesday August 29th – 4:00 pm – 7:30 pm – Varsity Jamboree Away at Oyster River High School.

A special note to parents:  We know pre-season is difficult to fit into your busy schedule, especially for incoming freshmen.  We are asking that you make EVERY EFFORT to please be on time to pick up your daughters at the end of a practice, scrimmage or game.   Coaches must remain with players until they are picked up so your help with this would be greatly appreciated.  Please also note that when there is an event or happening at EHS (such as a home football game), players will often stay after a practice or game to attend.  On these days we will release the players provided they are staying on school grounds.  Please talk to your daughters about making good decisions and staying safe at all such events.

Finally we will be announcing a boosters meeting soon so please stay tuned.  We can use all the help we can get so if you would like to be involved please contact our Head Boosters: Deirdre Johnson or Russ Peirce for details.

Looking forward to an awesome season for all!

Coach Mike

cropped-Blue-Hawk.jpgHello Hawk fans everywhere!

The match today is confirmed and will begin at 3:00 pm at Spaulding High School located at 130 Wakefield Street in Rochester.  Come support Blue Hawk Volleyball and let’s pack the stands!

Yesterday’s Post with details about the match (and any corrections) follows:


Hello Hawks!

cropped-Hawk-Ball.jpgWhat an exciting time!! After hosting the Broncos of Alvirne High School and winning in 3 straight sets, we are headed to Spaulding High School for the second round of the playoffs!!  We would like to invite ALL JV and FRESHMEN players who would like to attend to ride the bus with us on Saturday.

 

WE NEED AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE CAN GET TO PACK THE SPAULDING GYM WITH BLUE HAWKS!!!!

Here are a few things you need to know about tomorrow’s match:

  1. The game is currently scheduled for 3:00 PM.
    1. Because there is a Senior Social at EHS, Spaulding has graciously agreed to move the match time, HOWEVER,
      1. If the Spaulding football game is rained out this evening, they will be forced to move the match time back to 6:00 PM
        1. We are hopeful that will not happen!
  2. Parents and Players will have to pay admission to the NHIAA (unless they ride the bus with us!).
    1. My recollection is that it is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students but I could be wrong so plan accordingly.

That’s it for now…  Wish us luck!

Go Hawks!

Final Week Regular Season

Oct 162016
 

Hello Hawks!

cropped-Blue-Hawk.jpgIt’s been a great season so far and as we enter the final week of regular season, there are a couple of ceremonial events we want you to know about.  On Monday, we have our second to last home match.  As has been our tradition for several years, we will announce all of the JV players at the start of the match.  We expect that the announcements will happen at approximately 4:50 pm so parents should arrive a little early to the match.

Also, On Wednesday, Our last home match of the regular season, we will celebrate our Seniors on Varsity.   This year we have 7 Great Seniors!!!  As usual and in fairness to the visiting team, our warm-ups will be 6 minutes visiting team, 6 minutes Exeter, SENIOR NIGHT CEREMONY, and then 3 minutes shared.  We expect this to take place roughly between 6 and 6:15 pm.

Monday and Wednesday are triple headers (Freshmen begin at 3:30, JV at 5, Varsity at 6:15) and the last home matches for all teams.  Thursday marks the end of the Freshmen season as they will travel to Portsmouth.  On Friday, JV and Varsity travel to Spaulding High School for the last regular season match.

Enjoy the week!

Go Hawks!

Coach Mike
