High school athletics is a uniquely American phenomenon. Many of you reading this letter have fond memories of playing high school athletics. The experiences that students have while playing high school athletics provide lifelong memories and skills — teamwork and perseverance, for example — that will serve student-athletes well in the future.

However, high school athletics have been hit hard by the budget challenges facing the state, negatively impacting this uniquely American experience. That is why a coalition of like-minded community citizens and teachers is organizing a golf tournament to raise much-needed funds for high school athletics to sustain the ability of students to have a full, rich and complete high school athletics experience.

Therefore, the athletics boosters from Galt High School and Liberty Ranch High School are teaming up with the Galt Federation of Certificated and Classified Employees to organize a community golf tournament on April 20 to seek community participation to help out with high school athletics.

Please consider helping out in the following ways:

  • Sign-up a foursome for the tournament ($90 per golfer).
  • Donate "goodies" for the raffle prizes.
  • Sponsor a hole ($100 per hole).
  • Buy raffle tickets.

All proceeds from this event will be split 50-50 between each of the schools' athletic boosters clubs. We look forward to collaborating with the Galt community in this effort to improve the high school experience for the current and future students of this community. We know we can count on the spirit of participation and generosity that this community is known for.

Please contact either school's athletic boosters clubs for more information.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
