With Appreciation – A letter from Athletic Director Chuck Karter:

 
Thank you all for a fantastic Fall sports season! Without assistance from some very important people, the conducting of our sporting events would have been impossible. I also want to thank, and congratulate, all of the teams for an outstanding season on and off the field. We began most of our sports programs on August 3rd, with the conditioning phase of our return, and the number of team participants didn’t drop off a bit through the last contests of the season. A significant anecdote if you think about it. Actually, our Cross Country teams are still participating in events. On Saturday, October 31st, they will participate in the KVAC/Regional competition at Quarry Road where they will compete for the KVAC title and a berth in the State Cross Country Championships on November 11th and 14th. I wish them good luck and GO EAGLES!
The people that really made this Fall season possible are truly invested in the opportunity for our student-athletes to have the best experience possible here at Erskine Academy. I want to give a special thank you to my partner in every aspect of game preparation and management, Mr. Lars Jonassen. Coach J is a huge Erskine fan, a true advocate for kids, and values the important lessons that athletics can provide as part of a student’s overall development. I would also like to thank Chris Sementelli for looking after and taking care of our athletes as they journey through a long and physically challenging process of any season. Holly Tripp was also a big part of the game management team but this season, she was managing the Live Stream and production of all of our home athletic contests. Not an easy feat with the technological challenges of our outdoor facilities, and the battles with Mother Nature…good job!
This season, we created the opportunity to allow 2 guests for each player at home games. I want to thank Jenny Sutter for managing and coordinating all aspects of attendance and identification of those visitors. Jacob Sutter assisted on several games and my appreciation goes out to him as well. The “badge system” for our guests was created by Amy Rau, along with the development of the Live Stream platform for Erskine Academy Athletics to be viewed by the public…Thanks for your support! Jon Jorgensen can now add Field Hockey Timekeeper to his extensive resume. Thank you, Jon, for helping out at our multiple event afternoons. Of course, I have to acknowledge the gentlemen that prepare and maintain our facilities on a daily basis, Randy Pottle and Colt Pierce. They are always dependable and efficient in support of our programs and the students that benefit from them. Thanks guys!
There are also many people behind the scenes that make our season possible and I want to thank them as their roles are also very important to our success. Headmaster Mike McQuarrie, Associate Headmaster Jamie Soule, and Assistant Headmaster John Clark are the Administrative support needed to pull these programs altogether. Thank you for your guidance and counsel on a daily basis! The Erskine Academy Bus Coordinator, Wayne Lacey, and all of our fantastic bus drivers who ensured dependable transportation for every trip that was scheduled. Great job to you all! The Athletic Department’s financial support system in the Business Office, Eileen McNeff and Johanna Studholme, were always prepared and helpful in their processing of the needs for the programs. Thank you! I’m grateful for Heidi Hotham’s contribution to the management of our eligibility program. And, I also want to thank the parents and the public for their support and well wishes throughout the season. Your assistance and respect to all of the requirements of our mandatory protocols made this a wonderful experience for everyone involved. Thank you!
And finally, I want to thank our Coaches for their endless work and expertise in developing each of their programs. I value that you sacrifice your personal time for the planning, preparation, and execution, of your individual program. I also appreciate and admire what you add to the mission of Erskine Academy! Special recognition to: Mark Bailey, David Currier, Roxanne Malley, Mike Falla, Abby Glidden, Shara MacDonald, Gail Bucklin, Carrie Larrabee, and Colby Foster. You all made this season a resounding success by all standards. The best Coaching staff I could ever hope for…thank you!
