Elk Grove seeks help for trip to nationals

SHARE Elk Grove seeks help for trip to nationals

Elk Grove’s football program has a problem, but it’s not a bad problem to have.

The Grenadiers qualified for a national 7-on-7 tournament in Hoover, Ala., later this month by coming out on top against a loaded field at Wheaton Warrenville South’s Red Grange Classic last week.

Now Elk Grove is looking for some local businesses or corporations to step up and provide sponsorships to help defray the cost of the trip to the tourney, which is scheduled for July 25-28.

Anyone interested in helping out may contact Elk Grove principal Nancy Holman (847-718-4410), assistant principal Rick Mirro (rick.mirro@d214.org), athletic director Jon Rowley (jon.rowley@d214.org) or coach Larry Calhoun (calhoun.coach@gmail.com or 214-803-8660).
