Shenendehowa Swimming and Diving: In The News: Newsletter

Monday, January 14
To all Shenendehowa Families,
Hard to believe but only 5 short weeks until Sectionals!! Thank you to everyone who worked/supported the team at our meet last Tuesday against Bethlehem.  It was a great meet both in and out of the pool as the boys pushed the Shen winning streak in Section 2 to 70 straight wins!    As always, truly appreciate the time and effort that you all give on helping out with everything.  We have a very bust week coming up so please check all of the information below very carefully.  Please see the below notes regarding the schedule and team activity coming up, please e-mail me with any and all questions.

Shaker is currently unbeaten and was the 2nd highest finishing Section II team at our invitational, it should be a great meet with excellent competition.  Please encourage as many Shen supporters as you can to attend the meet!!
Team Activity
Here is what the game plan is for Friday:
Practice 3:00-5:30
I will order pizza for the boys so that they have something to eat before the night starts
The following people have volunteered to drive:
Hooper, Lydon, Costello, Ostrander, Czajkowski
If I am missing someone, please let me know.  Thank you so much to those who have volunteered to take the boys to and from the game.
After the game, we will head directly to Clifton Park Bowl for midnight bowling from 11:00-1:30 AM. 
***The boys are responsible for finding their own ride home from Midnight Bowling*** 
Please remember that the tickets and bowling have already been pre-paid for by the coaches and that each swimmer/diver owes $30 before we leave on Friday to cover the cost of Hockey Ticket and Bowling.  Any additional money for food/drinks/etc. the boys should bring on their own.
Diving Meet
We are very fortunate that Niskayuna has thrown together an additional diving meet to host this Saturday January 19th.  This is a great opportunity for the boys to get another 11 dive meet in and also potentially qualify for the state meet.  Warm-ups will start at 12:00 Noon at Niskayuna.
There will NOT BE A BUS for this meet.   Divers will need to provide their own transportation to and from the meet.  If anyone is in need of a ride (To or From) please contact me and let me know.
MLK Day Practice
We will be practicing from 9-1 on MLK Day.  In addition, 1 or 2 local Section 2 teams will hopefully be attending to play water basketball with us for the last hour.
