Thanks for the amazing support from everyone who came out. Runners one more race to go! Get a few miles in this weekend and be ready for practice on Tuesday!

Another hard played game by the Boys Softball Team, however the Huskies took a tough loss against Pyle Middle School. A huge shout out to Henry Hamilton, who has been a great pitcher for our team all season! Another shout out to Saif Munir and Evan Rich for playing new positions yesterday and contributing to our team's defensive play. Next week we take on Tilden Middle School on Wednesday and Wood Middle School on Thursday. Wish our players luck as we finish the season strongly!

"The girls' softball team played again Pyle Middle School. The girls' had the best hits of the season! Liz Cavannaugh's trip to first base sent Elizabeth Soopper home to get the Huskies on the scroreboard! Aaliyah Kinard was unstoppable at 2nd base and Beilul Tesfai made a great stop in center field to hold Pyle to only one base. Coach Roddy is very proud of all the Lady Huskies!"

Meet Arturo Moreno, billionaire and first Latino team owner in major U.S. sports. The oldest of 11 children raised in a two-bedroom home in Tucson, Arizona, Moreno became CEO and co-owner of a small Phoenix firm called Outdoor Systems. He built his firm into the country’s largest billboard-advertising company, which was bought by Viacom for $8.3 billion. After buying the Anaheim Angels from Disney in 2003 for $184 million, Moreno made headlines by lowering ticket and concession prices. He signed the best free-agent on the market at the time, Vladimir Guerrero, and made the playoffs in 2004. He then renamed his fan-friendly team the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. What’s next for the Angels’ owner? “A lot of people talk about getting to the World Series,” he says. “All I want is to win one.”
