Sports News

This past weekend your Swim & Dive Rocks competed in the KHSAA state championship meet at the University of Louisville. The team was seeded eighth heading into preliminaries on Friday, but by the time the water settled on Saturday afternoon the squad had climbed to an impressive fourth-place team finish, up from eleventh in 2016. Sophomore Hunter Tapp led the way winning the 50 free in a school record time of 20.6 seconds, and the 100 free in a state record time of 44.65 (forty-four-point-six-five) seconds. Both swims earned automatic All-American honors and secured Tapp’s place as a first-team All-State selection. Equally impressive were the relays for the Rocks – senior Cameron Gantt, and sophomores Luke Bunnell, Jacob Bellucci, Jacob Dray and Jacob Bibeau joined Tapp in balancing out three relays that scored 88 of the team’s 136 points. Special recognition goes to Bibeau and Dray who each also scored valuable points in individual events. With several returning team members, the team will look to rise even more at the state meet in 2018.Thanks for a great season, and go SwimRocks!

March is around the corner, and you know what that means. The most exciting tournament is about to begin, the Intramural Ultimate Frisbee tournament. There will be a freshmen division, sophomore division and a combined junior/senior division. Students participating in a spring sport are unable to participate. Team captains need to pick up a team roster and get the tournament rules during lunch or stop by Mr. Bryant or Mr. Carroll’s classroom throughout the day. Completed rosters are due to Mr. Carroll by the end of the school day this Friday.

Attention all students – intramural basketball is drawing to a close, and that means it is almost time for intramural volleyball! There will be a freshman-sophomore division and a junior-senior division. Any student not playing a spring sport, sanctioned or club, is eligible to play. Intramural volleyball is not run through the house system and there is no charge to play – that’s right – no money! So get all your friends together, choose a captain and fill out a roster. Rosters are available at the front table in the cafeteria or see Mrs. Mason in the Trinity Hall computer lab anytime. Games will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays between 3:15 and 5:00. So if you can play after school on Mondays and Wednesdays, starting on March 20, get your team together, pick up a roster, fill it out and turn it into Mrs. Mason in the Trinity Hall Computer Lab. Rosters are due by Friday. A mandatory captain’s meeting will be held on Monday, March 13, after school in the computer lab to discuss rules and schedules. Play will start March 20 and run through the end of April. If you want to play, but don’t know anyone else who is playing, or you can’t get a full team together, see Mrs. Mason, she’ll match you up with others like you or a team that could use another player.
