Tryouts February 23, 2002

John J. Young Middle School

The best of the best came out Saturday, Feb. 23, to "strut their stuff". What a day and what talent! Candidates from Indiana and Michigan came out to see if they have what it takes to be a member of the South Bend Stampede. Several men tested their ability on the 40 yard dash, vertical jump, left/right shuttle, and bench press. The South Bend Stampede Staff were very impressed and realize they have a tough job ahead, determining who makes the team. Results of the tryout will be posted within the next two weeks. And what a team it will be! Paul and Teena want to thank everyone who came out to assist with tryouts especially: John Sorg, Bryant Morris, Harold Frazier and Melissa Lapehn for their support and trying to stay warm on a "chilly day". The 2nd tryout will take place, March 23, 1-4, same location.

If you participated in the Feb. 23 tryouts, you can see if you made the team by checking the selection list.
