RHS Athletic Trainers attend the NTATS Injury Symposium

On Saturday, April 16th, RHS Athletic Training Student Aides attended the North Texas Athletic Trainers’ Society’s (NTATS) Injury Symposium at UT Arlington. They began their day visiting with colleges and universities who have accredited (caATe) bachelors and masters programs in Athletic Training.

With over 400 students from schools all over the North Texas area, they participated in interactive labs about the vertebra, concussion assessment, C-Spine emergency injury techniques and listened to a keynote speaker talk about “Providing Optimal Care during the Assessment, Management, and Transport of the Suspected Spine Injured Athlete.”

This year’s participants were Cooper Stokes, Tresa Yancy, Amy Seelman, Ana Tores, Jessica Isidro, Gabbie Argueta, Allison Mills, Breana Grodin and Mallory Matusiak. Cooper Stokes participated in the ankle taping contest, Breana and Allison submitted posters for Banned UIL Drugs, which took 3rd place, and the Concussion Return to Play contest. RHS Aides got 3rd place in the Olympics, a relay style contest that included one student fitting and lacing up a McDavid Ankle Brace, an athletic training supply grab, splinting a leg with a vacuum splint and a cooler carry across the finish line. The students even participated in a bonus scavenger hunt (created by Maria Rosanelli and 2 fellow AT’s) and came home with the inaugural win which will be incorporated into future student programing.

The RHS Athletic Training Student Aides all had a great time and learned a lot. We look forward to having more participate in the years to come, as well as winning the Ultimate Student Aide Championship!!

Richardson High School’s Brandon Averette commits to OSU

Brad Underwood, newly minted head coach for the Oklahoma State men’s basketball team, nabbed the first commitment of his tenure at OSU on Tuesday night, earning a verbal pledge from RHS point guard Brandon Averette. Averette, a former Stephen F. Austin signee, opened up his recruitment and was released from his letter of intent just this past week. So when did Oklahoma State establish contact with him? “As soon as I decommitted,” Averette said. “They were all over me. They have always believed I was a Big 12 point guard.” Averette averaged 22.6 points, six assists, 4.6 rebounds and was named the 10-6A Most Valuable Player as a senior.

Please Attend the 2016 Bond Planning Meeting Tomorrow Night

Tuesday night, the Bond Planning Community will hold a forum to discuss the upcoming bond proposals with our community. This is on December 8th at 6:30 PM in the RHS Black Box Theater.

The RHS ABC Board, members, coaches and parents have been discussing the upcoming bond election regarding our proposed multi-purpose facility. There has been some misunderstanding regarding this building, especially since early on it was referred to as an “indoor practice facility”, which is an extremely limited view of what it could mean to our kids and to all of you.

In case you have not heard all of the features that might be realized in such a facility, here are a few:

80-yard practice field for:

  • Athletics (football, baseball, soccer)
  • Band (much safer than the parking lot! Especially with students driving through, or trying to march in 100°+ heat)
  • Eaglettes
  • Cheer
  • Desperados (softer surface & saves small gym floor)
  • Weight & fitness room– RHS’s is severely overcrowded
  • The old weight room would become a bigger wrestling room and the wrestling room another weight room
  • Baseball-softball cages
  • Storage for band
  • 3-4 track lanes wide enough for hurdles
  • Golf hitting and putting areas
  • Coaches’/directors’ offices

As you can see, there are numerous possibilities. We are sure all of you remember the severe weather we had last year from cold to torrential rain in the spring. RISD Athletes missed 150 games & practices due to the rain. Many of our competitors have such facilities, and when our kids were going home early due to inclement weather, THEY were practicing or rehearsing. It makes a difference. RISD Athletic Director Bob Dubey has said that the purpose of these proposed multi-use facilities is to impact the largest number of kids and groups as possible.

On December 8, at 6:30 PM in the RHS Black Box Theater, the Bond Planning Community will hold a forum to discuss the upcoming bond proposals with our community. WE NEED A LARGE CONTINGENT OF RHS PARENTS AND STUDENTS to be present at this meeting because the attendance at this meeting will be very instrumental in how the RISD structures the bond.

Information regarding the upcoming Bond planning meetings

RISD is continuing to evaluate potential items to include in the 2016 bond and public input is a critical part of the bond planning process. Public meetings will be held in each of RISD’s four feeder patterns to present information about possible items for inclusion, solicit feedback, hear ideas and answer questions. Parents, residents and employees who are interested in the bond planning process are encouraged to attend.

November 30 – Pearce HS Corral – 6:30 p.m.
December 1 – Lake Highlands HS Auditorium – 6:30 p.m.
December 2 – Berkner HS Lecture Hall – 6:30 p.m.
December 8 – Richardson HS Black Box Theater – 6:30 p.m.

GO EAGLES!!
