South Florida Division ll Championships

I am hoping you all had a great meet and many of you made your JO cuts. I know how hard Coach Tomas and Coach Raphael have worked to prepare you for this meet…Now it is on to the Junior Olympics this week end….For the past seven years while I was coaching Team Weston I have endured the marathon like Division ll Meet. It is without a doubt one of the longest hardest meets for any coach to work….So while you guys were sweating it out on the deck, here is where I was ……


I was fly fishing with my son at Maroon Bells Lake just outside of Aspen. We were camping here for the week end. The scenery was just incredible and the fishing was fun!

I just thought I would like to have a laugh with you guys…………

Adios…Coach Pete
