Ida B. Wells Athletic Update 
“Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the  coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never  looked back… play for her.”- Mia Hamm 

Greetings Sports Fans!  

To say that tomorrow is a big day is an understatement. We host out first contests in over a year  tomorrow in our stadium when we host men’s soccer contest against Beaverton. Looking forward to  seeing our student-athletes and coaches on the pitch tomorrow! The rest of our fall programs have their  first contests this week as well. Going to be an exciting week of Ida B. Wells Athletics! 

Transportation + Pre-Screening 

The district is providing transportation to contests. The bus schedule is included in this update. Every  student-athlete will need to go through the pre-screening process before they get on the bus. If a  student-athlete does not ride the bus, they will have to go through the pre-screening process before  they enter the facility. It is extremely important to communicate to our coaches if your student-athlete  is not going to be on the bus. Communication is key.  

Contest Schedules 

The schedule for this weeks’ contests are included in this email and as a reminder, we cannot host  spectators during contests. That includes lining along the fences as well.  

Cross Country 
Our Cross Country program is gearing up for an exciting season with a solid group of returning runners  and a staff that has done an outstanding job of creating an amazing running culture. Their athlete of the  week is Freshmen Simon Walsh. According to Coach Esbensen, Simon has entered his first high school  cross-country season with a bang. His inspiration and leadership are remarkable. Rarely have we seen an  athlete with his confidence and ability to lead. We are so grateful to have him as an essential member of  our TEAM. They travel to Pier Park for their first contest this week. 

Women’s Soccer 
The Women’s Soccer Program is continuing to build a foundation of competitive, inclusive, and fun  soccer under the leadership of 2nd year coach Josh Richards and his staff. They have a solid nucleus of  returning players and very athletic freshmen sophomore group. They are poised to have an exciting  season ahead. They have a big week with a full slate of JV2, JV, and Varsity contests.  

Men’s Soccer 
Our Men’s Soccer Program is excited to get things started with our new Head Coach, Dylan Lomanto and  his staff. They too bring back a solid group of returners mixed with a talented freshmen and sophomore  class. They have a big week with a full slate of JV2, JV, and Varsity contests. 

The Football Program is poised and ready to make a splash this year with our new Head Coach, Keith  Bennett and his staff. It has been great to watch the Football Staff build a culture of football that is going  to translate into success for the program. Looking forward to them taking on the Rough Riders of  Roosevelt on Saturday! 

Our Volleyball Program has been under the steady leadership of Mark Mendak and his staff and they  continue to build a culture of inclusivity, family, and competitiveness. They are looking to fill the gaps of  a talented senior class from last year. They have key returners that provide leadership for a young  program. We face off with Madison and Grant this week.
