ATHLETIC NEWS

Providence Wrestling did well last night getting a lot of wins at the New Albany Scrimmage.  Wrestler results:

  • Chase Aldridge, 3-0
  • Caleb Barber, 2-1
  • Noah Liter, 2-1
  • Nathan Grantz, 3-0
  • Wilson Stemm, 2-1

Next up is the Michael Herschenrader Memorial Tournament at Male High School Saturday at 9:30.

Thank you very much to the students who came out and cheered your Pioneer Swim and Dive team on last night. You have a lot to be proud about.
Our guys were leading all the way until we got barely, barely nipped in the 200 free relay. A ton of personal bests were set last night, but before announcing those, we have one Grand Larceny Award, which goes to Alex Rousselle. Though it wasn’t for first for the 50 free (Sam LaMaster won confidently) Alex stole third by a mere tenth of a second.  He was clearly in 4th but with a great lean into the wall off of great stroke timing he stole a spot, which gave us two extra points. Nicely done, Alex! Liberty Russell preserved our position in the 200 free relay by leaning in and stabbing the wall as the New Albany  swimmer was right there!  Nicely done, Liberty.
On to the records:

  • The guys 200 Medley team of Zach Applewhite, Keiran Kelly, Bryce Drury and Harry Green crushed 6 seconds off the season’s best.
  • The ladies 200 Medley team of Abby Glotzbach, Meg LaMaster, Lauren Stapp and Daryl Hunton smashed more than 3 seconds off the season’s best.
  • In the 200 free, Trey Miller blasted 8 seconds off his season’s best time, and Aiden Jewell coming off the injured list somehow took a second off his 200 free time.
  • Zach Applewhite lowered his 200 Individual Medley by 3 seconds.
  • In the 50 free, Lauren Stapp is now in the “28 and under club” Whew! 
  • In the same race, Daryl Hunton blitzed 2 seconds off her 50 free and is now very close to joining the “Under 30 club”.
  • Paris O’Steen in the 50 free hacked a full 2 seconds off her time.
  • Peyton Richey didn’t want to stay in the water as long as she had in the past by destroying a second and a half off her 50.
  • But the big drop in time comes from Hannah Bissig with a 3 second drop. Awesome job, ladies, in the 50 free!
  • Sam LaMaster is now part of the “25 and under club” in the 50 free.
  • Alex Rousselle’s steal of the day put him in the “Under 30 Club”
  • In Dive, Claire Culwell bounced, twirled, twisted, and flipped her way into a season best 159.90 points accumulation.
  • Bryce Drury slammed an amazing 4 seconds off his 100 fly.
  • Not to be outdone, Marcus Fuson decided he would rather be done much earlier than in the past by sandblasting 6 seconds off his time.
  • The true blowtorch of the day goes to Liberty Russell in her 100 free. How one knocks 6 seconds off that time….crazy.
  • Daryl Hunton in the 100 free plowed down her time by 1.5 seconds.
  • Sam LaMaster and Harry Green dueled it out in the 100 free, both knocking about a second off their time. Of note: Every time Harry swims the 100, he drops time.
  • The guys 200 Free team of Kieran Kelly, Harry Green, Sam LaMaster and Bryce Drury flexed and squeezed 4 seconds off their relay.
  • The ladies 200 Free team of Meg LaMaster, Lauren Stapp, Daryl Hunton ripped another second off their season’s time.
  • Alex Rousselle (Do I need to keep mentioning him? I guess so) chopped 6 seconds off his 100 Back. Wow!
  • Kieran Kelly, scissored off another second on his 100 Breaststroke.

Again, it was great to see all the students, faculty and staff at this year’s meet!  GREAT JOB TEAM!

Track conditioning meeting in the cafeteria for those not currently participating in a winter sport, on Monday. Anyone interested in Track is welcome!

Your Super Sonic Swimmers were at it big time last night at Corydon, where we competed against Corydon Central, Scottsburg, and Lanesville. Lots of shout outs from the meet so let’s start with “The Art of the Steal.” 

  • Harry Green effectively “Stole Candy from a Baby” by winning the 50 free in dramatic fashion. Think of a baby with bright eyes, just given a lollypop. Eyes bright, smile brimming. Then comes along Harry, steals the lollypop, takes a lick or two and exclaims “Not in my house!” The 50 was a duel from the start with Lanesville getting to the turn first, but Harry totally nailed his flip turn and breakout to punch back out to the lead. As the Lanesville swimmer took one extra stroke, Harry leaned in and sliced right by the Lanesville swimmer and smashed the touch pad a mere 17 hundredths of a second faster. It was indeed a cruel hoax that Harry pulled off.
  • Kieran Kelly now holds the modern-day Providence record for cutting it close by winning the 100 breaststroke by 3 hundredths of a second. It was so close no one could tell. But Kieran has a knack for pulling out the closest of close and he did it again. I firmly believe a third of his team-contributed points this year have come from a combined 2 seconds worth of close wall touches. So cruel how Kieran just steals, steals finishes from other swimmers.
  • Zach Applewhite obliterated the field in the 500 free by finishing his 500 before a Corydon swimmer finished a 400 of the 500. Yep, two lapped him! Zach sprinted that last 25 to make sure that he lapped the Corydon swimmer twice. Nicely done!!!
  • Meg LaMaster cruised into the wall with grace and style to the disappointment of the Corydon and Scottsburg competitors who were just behind her in the breaststroke. Great job, Meg.
  • A massive shout out to our only available ladies last night: Meg, Lauren Stapp, Liberty Russell and Daryl Hunton. Never have I ever seen a team of 4 swimmers going against teams that were twice, three times and four times larger rack up 120 points. You came in third overall out of four which is simply mind-blowing.

The guys obliterated the competition with the following scores: Providence 332, Corydon 188, Lanesville 155, Scottsburg 72. Now for great individual performances. 

  • Bryce Drury: New PR in the 100 Fly. Over a second and a half drop
  • Daryl Hunton: Crossed out her old 100 free time with the galling drop of over 3 seconds. Wow!
  • Harry Green: A PR in the 50 free. 
  • Max Holman: 100 free.  What the heck, from 2:05 to 1:22. That’s rock star movement
  • Logan Applewhite: Runner up to the carnage of brother Zach in the 500 with a PR and second place finish! 
  • Sam LaMaster: Season best 1:01.48 in the 100 free!  Very nice!!!
  • Ethan Kerr: 100 free Dropped an absolutely amazing 6 seconds. Insane!!

Everyone contributed across the board in points!  Nicely done!  I absolutely love the attitude and how hard they will swim. Dive is heading tomorrow to the University of Kentucky for the Kentucky Invitational.  This is a big-time dive meet!

Congrats to the Girls Basketball team, which with only 6 players, beat a very good New Washington team 51-41 last night. Brigid Welch had a MONSTER game with 19 points and 19 rebounds. Natalie Boesing continued her string of 20+ point performances with 21 pts and 10 rebs. Amanda Upton added 5 pts, Kaylee Kaiser added 3, Maggie Purichia 2 and Lauren Castleberry 1.
Thanks to the students who came to the game last night. We only 2 home games left, this Friday vs Charlestown for Deanery Night and Jan. 22 vs Crawford for Joe Gryboski’s senior night! This team has now won 3 in a row and 4 out of the last five. Come get on board to support this great group of young ladies!

Last evening your Swim and Dive team headed up to Jennings County to swim and dive against Jennings and Greensburg.  Several personal bests for the season were set:

  • Daryl Hunton in the 100 free at 1:19.00
  • Peyton Richey in the 100 free at 1:51.89
  • Harry Green in the 100 free at 1:01.58
  • Zach Applewhite in the 500 free at 5:36.59
  • Lauren Stapp in the 50 free at 29.52
  • Sydney LaMaster in the 50 free at 35.20
  • Marcus Fuson in the 200 free at 3:29.76
  • Ethan Kerr in the 50 free at 34.87

Awesome job, ladies and gentlemen.  Your hard work is paying off!

Going into the unknown awards!

  • Last week, Both Bryce Drury and Marcus Fuson attempted, finished and scored in the 100 fly. This event is considered one of the hardest events and neither guy had ever attempted it before. So to complete it for the first time without ever swimming that distance and not DQ’ing is something to be super proud about. It’s really cool as both guys came up to me to offer to try this event. Just super proud.
  • However, last night we may have witnessed the ultimate in courage and sheer guts in Kadie O’Bannon and Catherine Pfeiffer, two students new to dive. Dive is a very complicated sport.  Unless you have a gymnastics background, this is a very difficult sport. There are 5 main dives, forward, back, front, reverse and I throw in there twist. Each dive takes a long time to master, and all take quite awhile just to get down. These two young ladies had never, ever, NEVER, completed a reverse dive. They have been trying and trying it, but splat they would go at practice. SO GOING INTO LAST NIGHT’S MEET, THE REVERSE IS A REQUIRED DIVE, THEY HAD NEVER COMPLETED ONE IN PRACTICE! And it’s their first dive. And the official has told me and told them that if they cannot complete it, they will be disqualified. And, unlike swim, ALL EYES IN THE STANDS ARE ON YOU. AND UNLIKE SWIM, THE PLACE IS SILENT AS ALL EYES ARE ON YOU. And there was stadium seating, with lots of people in the stands. AND THREE TEAMS LOOKING AT YOU. Sorry to the Chicago Bears kicker who missed the playoff field goal. There was tons more pressure on Kadie and Catherine. First dive, never completed it, tried in practice, tried that night in warm ups. Oh and speaking of icing the kicker, they had senior night before AND they moved up dive to the first event. NO PRESSURE THERE.  Guess what?  Kadie and Catherine nailed it! 
    Think of it. You are on stage with all eyes on you. You have to perform something you have never completed correctly. Never. Reverse is the hardest dive.
    How many times have you personally said, “No, that’s too hard?” I know she’s my daughter. I get it. You may think I’m just a proud dad. But think about it. Could you do what these two young ladies did? Failed, failed, failed. Then did it on stage.
    Thomas Edison was once asked, “You have failed a thousand times now to make this light bulb thing. Aren’t you discouraged? Are you going to give up?” He answered back with disgust at the question. “Are you kidding, I have learned a thousand ways NOT to do it. I am that much closer.”
    If you want courage, conviction, desire, drive, determination and just flat guts, look what these two young ladies just did. Look at what Bryce and Marcus did.
    It’s in you. ALL OF YOU. Every…single…one…of…you. Don’t let the naysayers tell you ever you cannot accomplish something. Don’t let self doubt be part of your mantra. Get up, try again, and perhaps when the spotlight is on you, it’s all those attempts, all those supposedly failed attempts that taught you how not to do something shines through and teaches you, heck yeah, I can do this! This is how.
    As I tell our team my life motto, I give it to you. Use this. It works!! Success = Opportunity + Expectation + Preparation + Others + Humility + Prayer. Great job everyone!

There will be a short Track conditioning meeting in the cafeteria after school on Monday. Anyone interested in Track is welcome! Conditioning is for those not currently participating in a winter sport.

Hi Students, Your Swim and Dive team are in the midst of a very busy schedule.
Let’s start with Dive!

  • On Wednesday, Tanner Carver set the school record in a 6-dive meet at Jeff by winning the event, then went to University of Louisville Saturday and finished first, beating all the Jefferson County guys. Tremendous!! Art in the air! School Record, School Record, School Record!!!!!
  • Thomas Gaines had his best performance ever at Jeff on Wednesday, coming in second to Tanner.
  • Super proud of Claire Culwell and Catherine Pfeiffer for attempting dives at Jeff that they don’t have down and Claire did a very nice job at U of L Saturday too!

For Swim, lots of personal bests from Wednesday and Saturday.  There would be more if we weren’t so sick.

  • Logan Applewhite has dropped his backstroke from a consistent 1:28 to 1:21’s Both days!  Awesome!!!  Love it! what I loved was his turn after the 50. Perfect roll, perfect foot position on the wall, perfect kick off the wall, one in which he took a full body length away from the closest swimmer. I love stealing time on the walls and the finish. Love it. LOVE it. 
  • Zack Applewhite set his season best on Wednesday at Jeff in the 500 at 5:41 and 2:26 in the IM. Consistently good, and very reliable.  His backstroke finish is super clean. Great job!  Keep it up!
  • Sammy Caylor has dropped his 100 fly to 1:13.55 which is a 10 second drop since November. Whew! Okay, WHEW!!!
  • Bryce Drury’s 50 free is now at a scorching 25.40 after Saturday and is now pulling 1:11’s and change in the 100 fly. Very nice! 
  • Marcus Fuson. what can we say, he did the 100 fly on Wednesday and his 50 free is now down to 37.66. Great, great, GREAT!  Super proud of that fly
  • Harry Green has dropped his 50 free to 27.32 and is rolling along with a consistent 1:02 in the 100. Super nice!
  • Max Holman has dropped his 50 free time every time he has raced this year and is now down to 33.22. Loving it!
  • Kieran Kelly is down to a 26.35 in the 50 free and set his season best in the breaststroke at 1:16.61 on Saturday. On Saturday he stole a place from a Jeff swimmer in the free and again from a Corydon swimming in the breast.  He points his fingers perfectly, perfectly at that touch pad. 
  • Ethan Kerr knocked down his 100 free to 1:27.42 on Saturday. Very, very nice!  Keep it up!
  • Sam LaMaster has knocked the top off his 200 free going from a 2:41 in November to two 2:31’s at Jeff this past week. Great job, Sam.  Keep that great effort going!!!
  • Sydney LaMaster drops like Max and her 50 free is now down to a 36.11. Keep it up!!  Very proud of your efforts!
  • Trey Miller has dropped his 500 free the last three times he has attempted it, going from 8:32 to 8:15 to now 7:58. The 500 is an awesome event.  It challenges the mind on pace control and is one of my favorite events.  I am glad to see the success that Trey is having.
  • Liberty Russell: Her 50 free has now dropped to a 32.81 and her backstroke from an earlier season 1:46 to now 1:31.32. She also does a tremendous job finishing and stealing places by jabbing the heck out of the touch pad.
  • Tyler Upton: Seeing Tyler drop his 100 from 1:37.7 to 1:30.60 is awesome to witness! 

We are seeing a lot of successes in swim and dive, lots of time drops, great team finishes in meets.  This is a fun group to coach and watch succeed.

Again, GREAT JOB TANNER CARVER YOUR NEW SCHOOL RECORD HOLDER IN THE 6 DIVE COMPETITION!!
