Welcome from Athletic Director Matt Lawless
August 8, 2013 WELCOME TO CambridgeBears.com Year 2!
Cambridge Bears Fans,
Welcome back to Bear Country and to CambridgeBears.com, “the best high school athletic website in the country” and your destination for all things Cambridge Bears Athletics! On behalf of the Cambridge High School Athletic Department, Cambridge Administration, Cambridge Athletic Association, student-athletes, coaches, and staff, I would like to personally thank each of you for your dedication and commitment to Cambridge High School Athletics throughout our past inaugural season. It was a year marked by hard fought competition, thrilling victories, and even state championships and state championship appearances. It is strikingly evident that the sky is the limit for our Bears in year two.
Our student-athletes will also have access to top-notch facilities that are growing after just one short year. These facilities can be viewed online under the “Facilities” tab of our website and include one artificial turf field lined for multi-sport use, two full size gyms, a natural-grass soccer pitch and practice field, an all-weather track, a brand new Cross Country trail which will open before the end of the year, five full tennis courts, a recently improved baseball and softball field, a state-of-the-art athletic and academic weight room, and a large sports training facility. We truly feel as though our athletic resources are second to none, and we aspire to grow these facilities year after year.
The future growth of our athletic programs truly rests upon the involvement of our coaches, staff, and--perhaps most importantly--our community. We encourage all Cambridge Bears fans to get involved in the development and success of all of our sports programs. For more information on the Cambridge Athletic Association and how you can help to share our unique vision for Cambridge Bears Athletics, please click on the “Support the Bears” tab on the main page, or visit “About the Cambridge Athletic Association” under the “Inside Athletics” tab.
As Athletic Director, I constantly reflect on my own experience as a former high school and college athlete and recall the impact that my athletic endeavors have had on me both personally and professionally. I truly believe that some of life’s greatest lessons are learned on the playing field. Accordingly, sportsmanship and integrity are virtues that will continue to define our athletic teams at Cambridge High School. Our coaches and players will practice these ideals on a daily basis. I would like to personally thank each of you in advance for also modeling these qualities for our student-athletes.
Once again, we thank you for your continued support and for your involvement in our student-athletes’ academic and athletic success. We look forward to establishing a winning tradition both on the field and in the classroom at Cambridge High School. Thank you again, and I hope to see you at our various athletic events this season!
