During the summer and fall of 2011, the Bowling Green Purple Striders Booster Club is trying to raise funds for event operations, race day T-shirts, and field equipment. We are soliciting support from individuals and businesses through advertisement on a fence park signs, signs staked in the ground, and t-shirt advertisement. Please consider sponsoring the BGHS and BGJHS Cross Country running teams with your support.
Fence park signs- This is one of our most popular and visibly supportive advertisements. These signs are approximately 5×6′ and can have any logo, artwork, or business card design printed on them. These hang on the baseball field’s fence facing the running track at Kereiakes Park where we host our home meets. Last year’s supporters are still there! If you choose to keep your sign hanging in support of our teams, the cost is only $100. Please consider having a sign advertisement made for $200 new. Last year’s signs have had a full year of advertisement to everyone who comes to play baseball, tennis, walk, run, or attend soccer practices.
Staked signs- New this year, we are offering “yard sale” sized signs that are staked in the ground near the pavilions at Kereiakes Park during our home meets. Again, we can use any artwork, logo, or business card design. The cost is $50.
Race T-shirt advertisement- We will host our annual Purple Striders Invitational on September 10th. You may choose to be a sponsor and have your name or business name, logo, or business card printed on the back. The cost is $50.
Package Deal #1- If you really want to show your support to all the kids who’ve run and practiced so hard all summer, you can choose to do all three for $250.
Package Deal #2- You may also choose a staked sign and t-shirt advertisement. The cost is $75
The Purple Striders Booster Club and Cross Country teams greatly appreciate your generous support!
Congratulations to the following BGHS track and field athletes for making the 2011 KTCCCA Academic All State Team.
For an athlete to be nominated for academic honors for the 2011 season, they must meet two criteria.
1). They must qualify for the KY State Track Meet. This includes individual athletes on relays. This must be documented.
2.) They must meet academic criteria. For Academic All State the athlete must have a g.p.a. of 3.75 – 4.0. Academic All State Honorable Mention is 3.5 – 3.74. This may be for their last grading period or it may be cumulative. This also must be documented.
This is not an easy award to receive and we are very proud of everyone and your hard work. Way to go PURPLES!!
