The PHS Blue Crew is winding down a spectacular year! Over the weekend, the team performed at a couple of the Deanery Championship basketball games held here at Providence. It was fun to bring some entertainment to our future Pioneer crowd! Our last two performances will be this Friday, Feb. 14, and next Friday, Feb. 21. Come see the awesome routine the girls have worked on to end our season!
Thinking you may like to be a part of next year’s team? Tonight, come visit us at our Meet and Greet, and see what we’re all about! Observe our practice, ask questions, meet the team, and see if it’s something for you! Drop in anytime between 6:30-8 p.m. in the Koetter Gym. Hope to see you there!

Congratulations to Chase Aldridge for winning Wrestling regional and advancing to the Evansville Semi-State. Chase pinned his first two opponents and won 2-1 in the finals, defeating both sectional champions while avenging two season losses en route to the tournament championship.

Congratulations to Bowling Team members Elle O’Bannon, Maria Popson, and Andrew Henderson, who were named to the IHSB Academic All-State team. They are invited to take part in the IHSB All-State Scholarship Tournament at Thunder Bowl I, 6700 South Lafayette, Fort Wayne, Ind., on Saturday, Feb. 29.

Shout out to the following Swimmers, who scored points for us at the Floyd Central Sectionals:

  • In relays:  Audrey Howell, Beth Wimsatt, Sarah Boehm, Sydney LaMaster and Lauren Stapp.  Julia Thomas swam relays in the prelims on Thursday, but I wanted to rest her for the breaststroke. And that worked.
  • Julia swam the fastest breast stroke in the past 5 years and perhaps longer with a sizzling time of 1:23.66. That time was good for 11th overall in a very, very fast breaststroke competition. Great job, Julia!
  • Lauren Stapp also swam the fastest 50 free in the past 5 years and perhaps longer with a water-churning 28.65. That was good for 13th overall in yet another extremely competitive 50 free.
  • Both Lauren and Julia finished and pointed higher than both their seed and qualifying positions. Nicely done, ladies!
  • The 200 free relay team of Sydney, Audrey, Sarah and Beth placed 10th overall and the 400 free relay team of Lauren, Sydney, Sarah and Audrey came in 11th overall.

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

National School Counseling Week: Today, let’s talk about how resilience can contribute to healing and well-being. Christopher Reeve played one of the greatest heroes of all-time – Superman – in four movies. But a horse-riding accident left him paralyzed from the neck down, proving that humans are more vulnerable than the characters they play on stage and screen. Reeve devoted the last decade of his life to finding a cure for paralysis, raising millions of dollars through his foundation. He once said, “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” His resilience and strength in the face of tragedy, not his costume or his on-screen superpower, are what made him a true hero. What can you do to help others who are struggling or in need? What can others do to help you become more resilient in your life? Give this some thought and come see us if you’d like to talk. Be someone’s hero today.

Or ungrateful. They find it easier to complain about their obstacles than to work through them. But as Michael Jordan once said, “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” Babe Ruth, one of the greatest baseball players ever, had a similar attitude. “Every strike,” he said, “brings me closer to the next home run.” And he hit 714 home runs, a record that stood for almost 40 years. Take a moment to think about your attitude. Do you approach things positively or negatively? Do you reach out to others for support? Reach out to us. Feel free to stop by our office anytime.

ATHLETIC NEWS

The Cheer Team traveled to Dallas, Texas, for NCA High School Nationals on Feb. 1-2. The team preformed six times with different routines consisting of gameday cheer, band chant, school song, and the performance division. They finished 5th overall, improving their score each day. The team will finish out its season by cheering on the Boys Basketball team and supporting the winter and spring sports. Tryouts for the 2020-2021 cheer team will be held April 20-22.

The Girls Basketball team lost 43-29 to No. 11 Crawford County last night in the opening round of sectionals. The team ended its season 12-12 and graduates four seniors: Kaylee Kaiser, Natalie Boesing, Maggie Purichia, and Brigid Welch.

The Boys Basketball program would like to congratulate the Girls Basketball program on a great season with several memorable wins over rival opponents and good teams.

  • The Boys JV Basketball team had two nice wins last week over Silver Creek and Christian Academy to improve to 13-3 on the year. The team defeated the Dragons 34-22 and were led in scoring by Grant Williams with 11 points. It then defeated the Warriors 62-14 and were led by Grant Williams with 15 points and Grant Borden and Brennan Finnegan with 12 points apiece.  The JV team is 14-3.
  • The Boys varsity team lost in OT to a solid CAI team. Of note, Sterling Silver Huber got to sign the Rhino ball for taking four charges, a feat that had never been accomplished even by 4 year pure bred Rhinos over the span of a decade. They are currently checking the record books – but it appears this is a new Pioneer boys’ program record.
  • Earlier in the week, the varsity team lost to No. 1 Silver Creek 61-44. The Pioneers were led by Zach Johnson with 12 points and 8 rebounds and Sterling Huber with 10 points and 2 charges drawn.
  • The Freshman Boys team has two huge home games this week, tonight at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m. vs. rival schools – Jeffersonville and Floyd Central.

The varsity and JV teams will play a big game at South Central where they need to get a road win on Thursday. The Pioneer Boys Basketball team looks to get back to its WINNING ways…

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

This week we are celebrating National School Counseling Week. As counselors, one of our goals is to help you learn new skills to help you succeed. Facing your fears is one of those skills, and it’s one we have to practice, too. Determination, self-confidence, and bravery – all of which are characteristics of resilience – can be hard. But being brave, determined and self-confident starts with standing up to fear. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “We gain strength and courage by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face.” Or, as comedian Tina Fey put it, “You can’t be that kid standing at the top of the waterslide over-thinking it. You have to go down the chute.” If you ever want to chat about your fears and ways to overcome them, feel free to stop by and talk with us. We are here to help!

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

Today is the first day of National School Counseling Week. Our focus for the week is “Resilience,” the inner strength that helps you overcome the challenges and obstacles you have in life to help you become a better human. Maya Angelou, the great writer and poet, faced a lot of struggles and traumas during her childhood. She moved from one family to another, where she witnessed and was a victim of violence. But she never gave up pursuing her dreams. She once said, “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” As your school counselor, we are here to help you work on the skills that will help you become resilient so you can pursue all of your dreams. Come by and talk with us soon, and let’s make today great!

Good luck to the Wrestling team at Sectional tomorrow! Competition starts at 10 a.m.

 New School Record?? Your Swimmers (just a swim meet, no dive) were amazing last night. We are getting ready for sectionals, so we’ve been spiking the workouts this week, so I was not expecting record times. Lots of swimmers trying new events. Combined, girls and guys, we won 135 to 102!
New events included Logan Applewhite in the 50 free, and he beat his benchmark time! Kieran Kelly swam the 100 free, Jake Miller the 100 breaststroke, Alex Rousselle the 500 free, Lauren Stapp the 200 free, and Ben Tackett in the 50 free.
Setting personal bests were Logan Applewhite in the 100 back, Ben Tackett in the 200 Individual Medley, Julia Thomas in the 100 free, and Ethan Kerr in the 100 free. These three should not have been able to do that as our workouts have been geared to not do that this week!!!
Lots of overall winners too! Lauren started it off with her 200 free, Zach Applewhite in the 100 butterfly, Julia in the 100 free, Sarah Boehm in the 500 free, Zach Applewhite in the “500 free,” Logan in the 100 back, and Kieran in the 100 breaststroke.
Great job to Audrey Howell, Beth Wimsatt, and Marcus Fuson, Your awesome swimming helped add to the point’s haul and overall victory! Sydney LaMaster and Zach Aurilio were sick, and since there was no dive, no shout outs to Cassandra Fetz, Catherine Pfeiffer and Kadie O’Bannon.
As a coach, you have to weigh everything when you are presented with an idea from a swimmer. In the 500 free, they opted not to swim it, so only Providence swimmers entered the water. That had a lot to do with this request. I would not have allowed it otherwise. Zach did something that caused the entire pool deck to gasp! Southwestern’s team was absolutely stunned. Their top swimmer came over to cheer Zach on. The parents and fans sat there, frozen in disbelief. Could this be possible? This can’t be. No one can do this. The pros don’t touch this either! So what was it.
Butterfly is the hardest stroke of all. Freestyle is exactly that. You can swim it freestyle or any stroke. You just have to maintain whatever stroke you start with in free. Zach swam an entire 500 in butterfly! In 7:18 at that! 
Fly is the fastest stroke, but it absolutely drains you. There are no distance fly events, no matter the level. But he did it!!!
Now, why wouldn’t I allow it if a swimmer from Southwestern was in the 500? Simple. Go to the Beatitudes for your answer. 
So the new school “swim record” is this: 500 Butterfly, Zach Applewhite, 2020 time of 7:18
Certainly, no one has attempted this before, and quite frankly, who is going to attempt it again? 
So congratulate your awesome Swim and Dive team today!!!

The Boys Basketball game vs. Christian Academy tonight will be livestreamed on www.ihsaatv.org and glicod.com.
