Sorry for the inconvenience to the 15U Girls team who had practice scheduled tonight at Seabury. Apparently, the MIL Boys Volleyball game originally scheduled for this Thursday got switched to tonight and we were not advised in time to cancel practice and inform the team. We apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused you parents.
