Please go to TEAM APP > HORNET STORE to order. We will take the last order for shirts TOMORROW August 20th. Shirts will be available the week of the meet.

THANKS to all the families who came out Friday night to cheer on the team. It makes a huge difference for the athletes and they love hearing the noise!
Please note that meets and how they are set up change from year to year. Parking is often difficult and may take time to park and get to where you need to be. Fridays meet was, unfortunately, very frustrating for many. RHS coaches and booster club members were not aware that shuttles were to be used. This communication did not make it to us. It was not mentioned on Milesplit which is another source of information.
Once again, Team App is used to disseminate helpful information to support our team, coaches and parents. The chat feature can be removed if it continues to be used to spread negativity. Everyone involved is doing their absolute best. We are always open to new volunteers who may have new ideas. Please contact anyone of us if you have concerns and/or questions. See our website for individual contact information.
