Quotes of the Meet!!!!!!!!!!!


Set your goals high, and don't stop till you get there. Bo Jackson

You are never really playing an opponent. You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits, that is real joy. Arthur Ashe

 You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave–win or lose. Gordie Howe

·       "For something to hurt that bad, and feel so good, it's just inexplicable."
- Adam Goucher, NCAA Cross Country Division 1 Individual Champ - 1998

From Lafayette Track and Field:

Hello Parents,

 My name is Jon Lawson. I will be the Head Coach for the boys and girls track team this upcoming track season. First, I would like to thank the parents that have already step up to help out the Booster Organization. As we all know, it takes a lot of time and effort to run a program. This is only possible through the hard work of the student athlete's and you the parents. I've been apart of the football program for ten years and parent support is very essential to the success of a program. Having all our board members in place would be a great start. We will have a parent meeting sometime in November (TBA). At that you will have a chance to meet the Coaches and discuss the direction of the program. If you have any questions, you can email or call. 859-576-7592

 Thanks

Coach Lawson

Message from Coach McNulty:  Lafayette 2013 Summer training!

Coach Palmer had a bad fall a few weeks ago and hit is head while skate boarding. He is going to have to undergo physical therapy and has been advised by doctors to live with his parents in Verona KY for the fall. He will not be able to coach on a day to day basis but he will be at a few meets to cheer on the team. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Coach McNulty
