Saint of the Day: If it hadn’t been for an elder brother taking him under his wing, Saint Peter Damian may have taken a very different path in life. But with his brother’s guidance, he matured into a holy man, monk, and bishop. A man of prayer and devotion, Saint Peter Damian was also a spiritual writer. https://www.franciscanmedia.org/source/saint-of-the-day/

The Boys Swim and Dive Sectionals concluded on Saturday with some incredible performances. Where to start?
First, as a team, we cracked the triple digits in scoring for the first time in seemingly forever with 118 points. Last year, we scored 78. This year, we finished 7th of 16 teams, last year, 11th. The only schools ahead of us are schools with year around swim programs, the big schools, such as Floyd Central, Jeff, Seymour, Jennings County, Madison and New Albany. Then us. Behind us were all the Mid South Conference teams such as North Harrison, Corydon, Scottburg, etc. And like basketball, we were an inch away from knocking down New Albany. One more race! That’s all we needed.
Stealing Candy from a Baby Award: Who else? Kieran Kelly! He needs to at least serve some time in detention for that very nasty steal from a New Albany swimmer in the 100 breaststroke. It was brutal. The New Albany swimmer had it, had it. His body was ahead of Kieran’s. But he made a fatal flaw in his finish. He took another stroke. As he did so, Kieran leaned in, finger tips out and slid right by the New Albany swimmer. One word: Priceless!
Personal Record Awards: Kieran Kelly in the 100 breast. Bryce Drury in the 100 free, Thomas Gaines in the 1 meter 11 dive, and Zach Applewhite in the 200 IM and the 500 free.
Should have personal records but were in relays: Sam LaMaster in the 50 free, Harry Green the 50 free, Kieran Kelly in the 50 free and Bryce Drury in the 50 free. Also, Harry Green in the 100 free and Sam LaMaster in the 100 free.
Awesome job by our divers, Tanner Carver and Thomas Gaines for finishing 5th and 6th and hauling in a ton of points.

All three relays bettered our times from last year:

  • Medley Relay (Zach Applewhite, Kieran Kelly, Bryce Drury, Harry Green): 1:56.18. Last year 2:07.24
  • 200 Free Relay (Kieran Kelly, Harry Green, Sam LaMaster, Bryce Drury): 1:43.02. Last year 1:46.63
  • 400 Free Relay (Zach Applewhite, Harry Green, Sam LaMaster, Bryce Drury): 3:59.49. Last year 4:05.1

These guys did absolutely awesome. Each has a great positive attitude. Each showed up at practice, and didn’t take days off. They put in the time and effort at practice too. And when you do that, great things happen. So congratulations Tanner, Thomas, Harry, Sam, Bryce, Kieran and Zach! You made it out of the elimination round on Thursday and soared and scored on Saturday!
Cheers, Head Coach Jim Pfeiffer

ATHLETIC NEWS

The Boys Swim team is set to make a little history for Providence. I’ll have to dig into the archives to see if when was the last time they did so well at Sectional Prelims, but we are ready to score a lot of points and take down a lot of teams on Saturday. The prelims are an elimination meet, which sets the meet for Saturday.
All three relay teams set team records, and all three are set to swim in the championship heat with the winners going to state!   This has not happened for a very, very long time.

  • Your Medley team: Zach Applewhite, Kieran Kelly, Bryce Drury, and Harry Green
  • 200 Free Relay: Kieran Kelly, Harry Green, Sam LaMaster, Bryce Drury
  • 400 Free Relay: Zach Applewhite, Harry Green, Sam LaMaster, Bryce Drury

Your dive team of Thomas Gaines and Tanner Carver are also diving in the championship round with State Regionals on the line.
Swimming in consolation events (which means they beat a lot of swimmers) but can gain a lot of points for us are:

  • Zach Applewhite in the 200 Individual Medley and the 500 freestyle.
  • Bryce Drury in the 100 free
  • Kieran Kelly in the 100 breast

Setting personal records to get there were Zach Applewhite in the 200 IM, Bryce Drury in the 100 free and Kieran Kelly in the 100 breast. Keiran had to swim his personal best in order to qualify, and he did. He also “stole candy” from a New Albany swimmer by out-touching him at the finish. 
Also gaining their personal bests for the season were the following swimmers:

  • All three of our 200 free swimmers:  Trey Miller, Ethan Kerr and Tyler Upton
  • Two of our three 50 free swimmers:  Harry Green (who is an alternate) and Kieran Kelly
  • All three of our 100 free swimmers:  Bryce Drury, Alex Rousselle and Max Holman
  • 100 Backstroke: Alex Rousselle

Please congratulate these guys in the classrooms, lunchroom, and the hallways today.  Everyone just flat out rocked it last night, so we are set to have a Sensational Sectionals Saturday!

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. https://www.franciscanmedia.org/source/saint-of-the-day/

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

National School Counseling Week: The school counseling staff, like everyone in our school, is here to make a difference in your life.

And remember that life’s a great balancing act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed!” Our door is always open, and we are ready to help you. Nothing is too big or small for us. Thank you for celebrating National School Counseling Week with us. Have a terrific and safe weekend! 

What Isn’t a Healthy Relationship? Relationships that are not healthy are based on power and control, not equality and respect. In the early stages of an abusive relationship, you may not think the unhealthy behaviors are a big deal. However, possessiveness, insults, jealous accusations, yelling, humiliation, pulling hair, pushing or other abusive behaviors, are — at their root — exertions of power and control. Remember that abuse is always a choice, and you deserve to be respected. There is no excuse for abuse of any kind. If you think your relationship is unhealthy, it’s important to think about your safety now. Consider these points as you move forward:

  • Understand that a person can only change if they want to. You can’t force your partner to alter their behavior if they don’t believe they’re wrong.
  • Focus on your own needs. Are you taking care of yourself? Your wellness is always important. Watch your stress levels, take time to be with friends, get enough sleep. If you find that your relationship is draining you, consider ending it.
  • Connect with your support systems. Often, abusers try to isolate their partners. Talk to your friends, family members, teachers and others to make sure you’re getting the emotional support you need. Remember, our advocates are always ready to talk if you need a listening ear.
  • Think about breaking up. Remember that you deserve to feel safe and accepted in your relationship.

Seniors: Please check the scholarship spreadsheet for upcoming due dates. This will help with managing timelines. If you have any questions, please see your counselor. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EheJwh_F1woFQ_–Ei5rI7ju7rHm0BZsGhemrrUgXBs/edit?usp=sharing
