ATHLETIC NEWS

The varsity Boys Basketball team improved to 8-12 Tuesday night by beating Rock Creek 54-45.  Come out support the team and salute your seniors tonight vs. North Harrison. Senior Night starts immediately after the JV game. Hope to see you there.

Hi Providence Students,
Your Supersonic Swim Team and your High Flying Dive Team were “all over it” last night.  The divers’ big meet is Saturday. More on that later. But back to your supersonic swim team.
All three relays qualified to swim on Saturday. Your medley relay team last night consisting of Nick Katchur, Kieran Kelly, Sam Caylor, and Logan Applewhite swam a near record time, and this is the first time this group has swam this relay. Great job, guys. I was like, “These dudes flew!”
However, the first individual event, the 200 free, saw a combined drop of time of 48 seconds. That’s crazy!!! Insane! Aiden Jewell went from a personal best of 3:33.93 to 3:09.56. Dang!!!!  Alex Rouselle? How about from a 3:03.30 to 2:44.38–and he did it with a goggle full of water.  Whew!!! And Trey Miller took his 3:14.07 and sliced it down to 3:09.33.  Congrats, guys! Super job!!!
In the 200 IM, Logan Applewhite and Kieran Kelly both set personal bests, and Nick Katchur rocketed through to qualify as an individual to swim on Saturday’s championship day. Awesome job, guys
In the 50 free, Zach De Los Santos and Bryce Drury set their personal marks in a very, very fast event with Harry Green barely, barely missing a personal best mark. Great time, guys.
In the 100 fly, possibly the hardest event, Sam Caylor also lowered his best time ever!  Great, great swim, Sam!!
In the 100 free, Zach Kaiser took a hacksaw to his old time of 1:20.13 and sawed it down to 1:11.28. Great way to end your high school swimming career — going out on top!
Zack De Los Santos also PR’d in the 100 free (awesome job) and for a really huge congrats, Sam LaMaster, who has been flirting with going under a minute for most of the season, finally busted that barrier with a very nice :59.64 time. Whoop it up!! Great job all three of you!!!
In the 500 free, Nick Katchur qualified to swim on Saturday with a personal best showing. Considering how fast the competition was, he needed to haul out his best time. Great job, Nick!
Our 200 free relay team of Sam LamMaster, Harry Green, Zach De Los Santos and Bryce Drury knocked 3 seconds off our team’s best time this year with Bryce turning in the best time in years for us in a 50 split, 24.81. Another awesome job, guys!
In the 100 back, Alex Perkinson won his heat and dropped 5 seconds off his best time, and Zach Aurillio swam very well too!  Great job!!
In the 100 breaststroke, Alex Rousselle set his PR by a second. Way to go! But Kieran Kelly’s best ever effort, a 1:15.46 put him in the individual race on Saturday. Great job, Kieran! Logan Applewhite also turned in a very good time too! Great job, guys!!
And lastly, your 400 free relay team of Sam LaMaster, Nick Katchur, Harry Green and Bryce Drury qualified for Saturday.
Finally, the ladies nearly doubled their score from last year to this year and set a bar high. Can the guys replicate the ladies showing? Come on out to Highland Hills on Saturday to find out. Dive Sectionals begin at 9:00 a.m., and swim begins at 1:00 p.m. Should be a great day.
Rarely do we see so many personal bests in one meet. This was crazy good! Awesome job, guys!  Really good job.
Many thanks, Coaches Jim Pfeiffer, Kitty Cline, and Philip Middleton

Remember to support the Football team in tomorrow’s Polar Plunge to benefit the Special Olympics of Southern Indiana. https://www.firstgiving.com/team/366242

Did you buy a ticket to tonight’s basketball game? If not, you can still catch the action via live video feed at https://www.glicod.com/basketball-programming.
If yes, REMEMBER your ticket. The game is SOLD OUT. If you don’t have a ticket, you won’t get in.

Theme for tonight’s game: It’s “Blue Fever,” as if Blue Pride is a sickness (in a good way). That means wear hospital scrubs, hospital masks, lab coats, stethoscopes, etc. Mr. Schaab has surgical masks in Rm. 312 to give away for the game tonight to interested students.
As many of you know, Jacob Trulock was a senior at New Albany last year who unexpectedly passed away. He went to St. Paul, which is a Deanery school, and was very close with one of our seniors last year. His favorite color was orange, so for the game please wear something small that’s orange to honor him. It could be a bracelet, bandana, etc.
Make sure to still do the “Blue Fever” theme!!
Reminder: You MUST have a ticket to get into tonight’s game. No exceptions.

Drawing Club February coffee shop outing will be Tuesday, Feb. 13, at Kolkins. Please stop by Studio A and pick up a permission slip. Hope to see you there!

Saint of the Day: Saint Josephine Bakhita. Kidnapped at the age of 9 and being too terrified to remember her name, Josephine acquired the name “Bakhit,” which means “fortunate one.” Her most “fortunate blessing” came when she was bought by an Italian consul, which led eventually to her conversion and freedom. She joined the Canossian Sisters and ministered in Italy. Read more

Theme for Friday’s game: It’s “Blue Fever,” as if Blue Pride is a sickness (in a good way). That means wear hospital scrubs, hospital masks, lab coats, stethoscopes, etc.
As many of you know, Jacob Trulock was a senior at New Albany last year who unexpectedly passed away. He went to St. Paul, which is a Deanery school, and was very close with one of our seniors last year. His favorite color was orange, so for the game please wear something small that’s orange to honor him. It could be a bracelet, bandana, etc.
Make sure to still do the “Blue Fever” theme!!
Reminder: You MUST have a ticket to get into Friday’s game. No exceptions.

Progress Reports: Progress grades are out. If you need a tutor, please contact your counselor, and we can match you with a NHS student for tutoring before classes in the mornings.

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

National School Counseling Week: Today’s message is about tapping into your network to reach your dreams. Music star Katy Perry once said, “It takes a village to make me who I am.” This simple quote has a lot of depth. Each one of us has a village. Your village consists of your classmates, friends, family, teachers, coaches, and others who surround you each day. Your village can help you become who you want to be. Your village is your network. Sometimes when we share our dreams and goals with our village, they can provide much needed support to help us achieve them. If you’ve set a goal to increase your grade in a class, maybe discuss your goal with your teacher. He/she could provide you with strategies to help you accomplish what you’ve set out to do. Who do you trust in your village to help you with your dreams? Who could be a resource and help you along your path to achieving your goals? Give this some thought and come see your counselors if you want to chat. Make today count!

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

As part of National School Counseling Week, we would like to begin today’s message with a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. She once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” What can you do to achieve your dreams? Work hard? Sure? Write down your dream on paper so you can see it every day? Of course. But there is one simple thing you must do in order to achieve your dreams – set goals. Goals, similar to dreams, are things that you aspire to do. You can have a goal to get a certain grade in your most challenging class. You can have a goal to create a time management plan for tackling your homework after school. You can even have a goal to wake up a bit earlier each day so you won’t rush in the mornings before school. Goals are things you want to set your mind to accomplish. Do you need help with setting your personal goals? Your counselors are here for you, so stop by and see us. Stay focused. Be kind. Be great!

Madison Roehrs advanced out of Diving Sectionals last weekend and headed to one of two regionals for state diving. At Bloomington North High School, our sectional qualifiers ran into some very stiff competition from 4 other sectionals with Madison finishing 14th. We can’t say for sure, but she probably finished the highest of first time divers at this regional, so congrats to Madison for giving great effort against some very fine competition.
I also want to thank Tanner Carver and Thomas Gaines for coming up last evening to support Madison. You two definitely provided some great support and once you arrived, her scores started to climb.
I also want to thank Coach Kitty Cline for all of her help with the divers this year. It’s been a long time since we had a diver qualify into Regionals, and the competition is very tough at that level.
Also, please congratulate Madison as she is the new school record holder in the ladies 6 and 11 dive competition!!!  To get those records having never dove before this year preaches to the dedication and time spent learning this sport.

Your supersonic Boys Swim & Dive team was at it again Monday night at Seymour High School. Did the Pioneers shoot the Owls out of the sky that night?  No, not quite, but we did receive some stellar performances with individual records.
Our 200 Medley “A” team of Harry Green, Kieran Kelly, Nick Katchur and Bryce Drury continued their assault on the relay time, lowering it by a couple more seconds.
But the big shout out goes to Brogan “Put Me in Coach I’m READY to SWIM” Welch, who, when finding out that Sam Caylor was sick and we needed someone to swim the butterfly in one of our other two relays as we’re driving up, he said, “I’ll do it!!!”  I thought he was downright crazy. “You sure about that?” “Heck yeah!!!” Okay…..surely he’s going to come up to me and ask me to pull him. Nope! Off he goes. And dang, he did it. Awesome job!!! Wow! That’s all I can say. Well no, I can say more. The fly is the hardest physically of the 4 strokes. It can drain you, especially if you are new at it. If you don’t get your elbows up, you DQ. Got through it. I am so impressed. Great job, Brogan. You rock!
Others who took an axe to their previous best times include Ethan Fulkerson in the 50 free, Thomas Gaines in the 6 dive competition, Nick Katchur in the IM, Alex Rousselle in the 100 breast, Alex Perkinson in the 100 back and Taylor Hensley in the 6 dive competition.
Speaking of Taylor and Thomas, the improvement we have seen in their diving is insane. These two guys had never dove before this year and with all the back crushing splats they’ve had in practice, I am sometimes amazed that they are in one piece. But they looked graceful, on point and tactically sound on their dives Monday night, and they scored the most amount of points ever.
So tell your swim team guys, “Great meet Monday night!” Next up:  Sectionals next Thursday at Highland Hills

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

Today is the second day of National School Counseling Week. The message today is about your aspirations. Aspirations are defined as a hope or ambition of achieving something. We sometimes call them stars – things you are reaching for. Sometimes aspirations, like stars, can seem so far away that they can’t be touched. But that doesn’t have to be your reality. Aspirations can be anything you want them to be. A career choice, a personal wellness goal, an academic goal, anything. If you could list one or two things you would like to achieve, what would they be? A wise man once said, “Your aspirations are your possibilities.” If you ever want to chat about your “stars” or aspirations, feel free to stop by and talk with your counselors. Live with purpose today!

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. For information and resources, please visit this website and read more below.  https://www.teendvmonth.org/
Dating is an inevitable part of life that many experience for the first time as a teenager. Healthy relationships, however, require hard work, communication, and a level of maturity that may not be present in teens. As a result, many teen relationships – nearly one third – are characterized as either unhealthy or violent. Understanding what teen dating violence is, why it happens, and what it means for those involved is an important first step in prevention. Teen dating violence “includes physical, psychological or sexual abuse; harassment; or stalking of any person ages 12 to 18 in the context of a past or present romantic or consensual relationship.” Some examples:

  • Physical Abuse: hitting, biting, shoving, hair pulling, pinching, scratching;
  • Emotional or Psychological Abuse: name calling, bullying, shaming, intentionally embarrassing, constant monitoring, limiting another’s activities/friends;
  • Sexual Abuse: forcing a teen partner to engage in a sexual act against or without their consent;
  • Stalking: Repeatedly following or harassing a partner in a way that causes them reasonable fear for their safety or well-being.
  • Teen dating violence can be done in person or, with the social media and electronically. Social media can be a great communication tool but it can also be used in an abusive manner, especially for those who are new to relationships and unsure of how to handle their feelings most appropriately. If you have concerns about a relationship or about a friend, please see your counselor or another trusted adult.

Providence Students,
Your supersonic and twisting and rotating Swim and Dive team wrapped up sectionals on Saturday with probably a 10-year high in points with 66 (34 last year) and with Madison Roehrs advancing to Regionals on Tuesday. Two of our three relay teams dropped significant time from last year, and the other one was really close to beating last year’s times. Madison continued her school record-breaking performances with her 11 dive result.  Great, great job, Madison.

  • Abby Glotzbach is now in striking distance of the school record in backstroke, so let’s get it next year. Meg LaMaster also dropped time in the 100 breast and swam very nicely for us in the 200 IM. A big shoutout to these two girls who earned individual spots. Their hard work, extra laps and focus paid off!
  • The relay team of Meg, Lauren Stapp, Abby and Anna Thomas crushed last year’s time in the Medley Relay and scored a lot of points.
  • The 200 free relay team of Faith Middleton, Daryl Hunton, Anna and Lauren Tomlin sped through the water gracefully with nice point haul.
  • But the big one was the 400 free relay of Abby, Lauren, Lauren and Anna, winning the consolation round with a time 13 ridiculous seconds faster than last year’s time.

Congratulate your swim and divers today!! They did an awesome job!!!  And you’ll know who they are as the ladies will be wearing spirit wear!
I want to thank coaches Kitty Cline and Philip Middleton for their wonderful support for these great young ladies.
And lastly, come out next year and be part of one of the fastest improving and growing teams at Providence!
Time to get the guys peaked and primed for their sectionals next week!!!

Wrestling Regional results: Sam Hudlin pinned opponents from Jennings County and Seymour to make it the championship match at the wrestling regionals before falling to Columbus East in a very exciting match. Sam advances to the Evansville Semi-State on Saturday along with Chase Aldridge, who is an alternate.

Congrats to the Girls Basketball team on an amazing season. The girls finished up the year 13-12, making 5 winning seasons in a row. They advanced to the sectional finals for the fourth year in a row.
Friday night, the Lady Pioneers took down the defending state champs with a 48-30 beat down of Eastern Pekin. On Saturday night they faced another top 10 team in Paoli and came up just a little short 47-44.
The girls and coaches would like to thank all the fans who came out and supported us all year, especially at sectionals. These girls battled all year long despite lots of adversity and personified BLUE PRIDE in every way.
Let them know just how proud you are of them when you see them!
Hannah Wolford completes her amazing career with many records. Hannah now has school records in points in a game, free throws and 2pt FGs’ in season and career. She also is 2nd in school history in points, rebounds, assist and steals in a career. Hannah finishes her career with the most postseason victories of any Pioneer basketball player ever, boy or girl. Congrats to Hannah on all of her accomplishments on the basketball floor.
