Eldersburgh Elementary in Carrol County – List is growing!!

On October 4, USYCA President Jamie Harrison brought cricket to Eldersburg Elementary in Carroll County, Maryland. Due to inclement weather outside, the presentation was held inside the school’s gym, which was no problem for the easily adaptable Schools Program. Jamie was there at the invitation of Debbie C. Buenger, one of Eldersburg’s two PE instructors and the 2008 NASPE National Teacher of the Year.
As an additional bonus, the cricket presentation was observed by Linda Kephart, Supervisor of Health and Physical Education for Carroll County Public Schools. Ms. Kephart was so impressed with the USYCA Schools Program that she immediately invited Jamie to present it to all county physical education teachers on February 22 at an in-service event at Winters Mill HS.

In a follow-up email, Ms. Kephart said, “Cricket is a great striking and strategy sport that can be enjoyed by students of all ability levels…. what a great addition this will be to our physical education curriculum!”
