Student-athlete update (from Coach Greg Howard)

We have started the LCHS “Giving Back Campaign.” One of the first ventures took place this week as members of our softball and baseball teams traveled to Chandlers to read to their students. We are also starting up a “Leadership” campaign for both coaches and our athletes. Coaches will be involved and take part in teaching these skills to our athletes on a more specific level beyond their teams. In order for Logan County Athletics to advance our place in the lives’ of our athletes and to move them towards greatness our level of involvement must also increase.
