2018 Season Summary and Team Award Winners

June 15, 2018

Man!  What a season we had.  All I can say is "This is what success looks like."  The enthusiasm from the riders at the end of our long journey tells me that we nailed the program this year.  Check out this summary breakdown prepared by Coach Charles.

 

"This season, the Bulldogs earned more podiums than any other HS/MS team with 74. The Bulldogs also hold the most 1st place wins (19) for the season out of all combined HS/MS teams."

 

But the real deal were the smiles on the athletes faces throughout the season.  We formed this team to instill values in youth.  Values that include commitment, hard work, team work and friendship.  More than ever, I believe we are On-Purpose with our mission - We exist to promote leadership characteristics in youth, while promoting a healthy competitive lifestyle within a safe environment that allows athletes to push and challenge their limits.

 

I want to congratulate all the Bulldog riders, coaches and parents on a great 2018 season.

 

And, announcing our 2018 Bulldog award recipients:
