ATHLETIC NEWS

Hello Students of Providence,
Our doors are still wide open if you are interested in joining the Swim and Dive Team. Practice starts for the ladies next Monday evening at 7:15 at New Albany High School. Dry land this Tuesday and Thursday after school.
We recognize all swimmers and divers are at different levels, and we work hard to build you up throughout the season. This is a very positive team that values the uniqueness of each individual to our team.
If you are thinking, “Wow, I can’t swim or dive like this particular classmate, so it’s probably not for me, or I doubt I’ll ever be able to master all 4 strokes or 11 dives,” that’s fine. We have all been there.
You will receive excellent coaching and strategic tips on how to excel at all aspects of this sport.
Think about it, and if you are interested, let me know, or let one of your fellow swimmers and divers know. Talk to them, and maybe give it a try for a few weeks and see how it goes.
Ladies, on day 1 we are going to work on free technique, balance tricks in the water to make free more effortless and fast, and the art of fast flip and open turning and starts. I’ll be demonstrating soft free, undulating free, lo-go free and loping free techniques.  Perhaps one of these styles of free will work well for you. Dive, you’ll be learning the basics off dive including the hurdle and approach.
When the season ends in February, you’ll be in great shape and feeling really good about yourself with the accomplishments you have made and the contributions you provided to the team.

Hello Students of Providence,
Our doors are still wide open if you are interested in joining the Swim and Dive Team. Practice starts for the ladies next Monday evening at 7:15 at New Albany High School. Dry land this Tuesday and Thursday after school.
We recognize all swimmers and divers are at different levels, and we work hard to build you up throughout the season. This is a very positive team that values the uniqueness of each individual to our team.
If you are thinking, “Wow, I can’t swim or dive like this particular classmate, so it’s probably not for me, or I doubt I’ll ever be able to master all 4 strokes or 11 dives,” that’s fine. We have all been there.
You will receive excellent coaching and strategic tips on how to excel at all aspects of this sport.
Think about it, and if you are interested, let me know, or let one of your fellow swimmers and divers know. Talk to them, and maybe give it a try for a few weeks and see how it goes.
Ladies, on day 1 we are going to work on free technique, balance tricks in the water to make free more effortless and fast, and the art of fast flip and open turning and starts. I’ll be demonstrating soft free, undulating free, lo-go free and loping free techniques.  Perhaps one of these styles of free will work well for you. Dive, you’ll be learning the basics off dive including the hurdle and approach.
When the season ends in February, you’ll be in great shape and feeling really good about yourself with the accomplishments you have made and the contributions you provided to the team.

ATHLETIC NEWS

Good luck to Boys Tennis as the team starts sectional play vs. Jeff tonight at 5:00 at Jeff.

Girls Soccer capped its senior night in epic fashion, overcoming a 1-0 deficit in the final minute to pull out the 2-1 victory over New Albany. Jacqueline Scott manufactured the tying goal with 51 seconds remaining. On the ensuing possession, Stephanie Koopman sent a wicked through ball which ended up at the feet of Carlie Miiler. “Carlos” eluded two Bulldog defenders and dished a perfect square pass to Avery Stumler in the box. Stumler calmly settled the ball before burying it in the back of the net with less than 8 seconds on the clock.

Monster Thank Yous to the Big Blue Bartle-Skeet Brotherhood (a.k.a. the Boys Soccer team) and everyone else who came out to cheer. Also special thanks to Mr. Hutchins and Mr. Makowsky for their support.

Your 4th-ranked Lady Pioneers concluded the regular season at 9-5-1 and look forward to hosting sectionals next week. First game for your home team is 5:00 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, vs Southwestern Hanover. The finals are set for 1:00 p.m. on Sat., Oct. 6.

Star Wars Club meeting, 3:15 p.m., Room 204
Last weekend for the Fall Show! Double House Points!

Saint of the Day: Saint Matthew was a Jew who worked for the Romans as a tax collector. His fellow Jews considered him a traitor and resented him. The Pharisees viewed him, and all tax collectors, as a sinner. So it was a real shock to hear that Jesus called such a man to be one of his followers. But that’s the kind of thing that Jesus did.
