End of Year Cookout-August 5, 2017
CLCF Panthers held their end of year cookout at the CLCF building for the third straight year. The weather was a little cool and wet but the team and parents made the best of the day.
Parents caught up with one another and the kids played dodge ball inside and when it stopped raining long enough-basketball outside. Thank you to everyone who came.
Indoor is the next season which begins in December.
The annual Youth Classic meet was held on July 14-15 at DeFazio Park in Needham, MA.
The Panthers sent over 35 runners to compete over the two days.
The Panthers defended their title fiercely against the stiff competition. The athletes knew that it would not come easy. Through their hard work and dedication CLCF ended up with another Youth Classic title. Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches of this great group!
