Congratulations to our September Athletes of the Month, Olaisa Moss and Joe Furlan. I was waiting on the new shirts to get done, so sorry for the delay. Olaisa has had an awesome start to the season. She has finished in the top 10 in every race so far but more impressive has been the mentorship roll she has provided to the freshman on the team. She goes on long runs with them and keeps their spirits up during hard practices and leads by example in every way. She is everything you want in a leader. Olaisa is also very involved in the Christian Fellowship group after school. Joe has been an amazing senior leader for the undefeated cross country team this season. He has won all 4 of his races and his served as a mentor to the younger runners on the team. He also serves as a volunteer firefighter for Columbia Township.
Tonight's volleyball match between Bloomingdale and Bangor at 5:30pm has been cancelled.

The Cardinals cross country teams competed at the regional championship meet today. In the boys race Joe Furlan finished 3rd and Jaden Barnes was 13th and both of them earned a trip to the state championship meet next week. The boys team battled hard and left everything on the course, they finished 4th as a team. David Garcia was 21st and Joe Stocchiero was right behind in 22nd. Trace Wixom was 31st and Tyler Osterman ended the year with a PR and finished 44th. Hold your heads up high boys, it was a great season! The girls team came into the race ready for a fight and they were in one every single step of the way. When all runners had finished and the scores had been tallied it ended in....a tie for 1st place. BUT, the tie is broken by the team's #6 runner and today our #6 runner Olaisa Moss was better than Coloma's giving the girls team the regional championship! Their second in the last 3 years. Aimee Sustaita and Kallie Harrison finished 7th and 8th respectively and were regional medalists. Zee Dickerson was 25th, Abby Krall was 30th, Addison Miller was 33rd, Olaisa Moss 41st, and Andrea Paz was 50th. Great running girls and a huge congratulations on another regional championship!

Furlan Commits to SVSU Bloomingdale Senior Joe Furlan took a big step last week as he committed to Saginaw Valley State University to further his academic and athletic career. Joe will be majoring in criminal justice and minoring in emergency management, and he will be a member of the school's track and cross country teams. This commitment is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication not only to Joe's efforts in the sport of running but also to the academic and extracurricular activities he has pursued outside of sports. Joe is a certified firefighter and member of the Columbia Township Fire Department, his experience in this area is what led to his interest in the criminal justice and emergency management field, which he plans to work in once his running career is finished. His athletic achievements in Bloomingdale are vast and impressive. He currently holds the school cross country record with a time of 16:28, and has set his sights on setting records on the track this coming spring. He is a 4 time first team all-conference runner, a 2 time regional medalist, and he was the first Bloomingdale cross country runner to earn all-state honors, doing so at the end of his junior season. His coach Alan Bobalik said "Joe has been an absolute joy to have on the team these past 4 years, he was a great leader and his effort everyday is what led to this great college opportunity. Students in the community should look at Joe as an example of what can be achieved through hard work."
We are looking for more boys that are interested in playing middle school (6th-8th grade) basketball. We would like to have 2 middle school teams. They practice tomorrow from 1pm-3pm (which will be the normal practice time). The season will be done prior to holiday break. If interested reach out to Coach Kidder or Coach Douglas for more information.

We are hosting our first athletic event on Wednesday, September 9th. Our cross country team hosts Hartford @ 5pm. Please note the following- Due to Executive Order 176 (which will allow 2 spectators per athlete) each athlete will be provided 2 tickets to give to family or friends to attend. If you do not have a ticket you are not allowed to attend. In order for sports to be successful it is imperative we all do our part to follow the new rules and guidelines set forth by the Governor's office and the MHSAA. You must social distance away from other family groups. You must also wear a mask when you are outside your vehicle attending sporting events. These rules will be strictly enforced so we do not jeopardize our athletes ability to participate in sports. Anyone not following these guidelines will be in violation of the rules and be asked to leave. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Social distance, mask up, keep on playing.

Yesterday a change in the Governors Executive order and guidance from the Michigan High School Athletic Association gave permission for all Bloomingdale Fall Sports to begin next week. High school football practice will resume Tuesday September 8th (4:00pm-6:30pm) with two days of practice with helmets only and full contact can begin next Thursday. The first scheduled game would most likely be September 18th - varsity football will play a 6 game schedule with the 7th game being the first round of the playoffs all teams would qualify. Decisions on schedules will be made as soon as possible. Volleyball may begin indoor practice on Wednesday September 9th and may have competitions immediately.

This year's Senior Baccalaureate (virtual) service will be held on Sunday, May 17, at 3:30 p.m. via a Zoom Meeting. The link will be shared with all students and staff through their school email addresses prior to the Sunday gathering. The service consists of three main parts: A group of teachers playing instruments and leading the participants in worship songs, Senior students sharing about their faith, and the keynote address given by Kevin Farmer. Typically we provide an ice cream social immediately following the event. This year's format requires that you BYOIC (bring your own ice cream, haha!). Hope to see everyone there as we celebrate our Seniors! 🙂
