Dear Parents & Student Athletes,
The excitement of the winter season is certainly here!  The swim and dive team saw 6 school records fall this season and Ben Gorski and Anna Shumate won state championships at the VISAA meet.  Trey Lovisone earned a well deserved 3rd at the state wrestling meet over the weekend and, with that, qualified to wrestle at the National Prep tourney at Lehigh this weekend.  

And, for the first time that I can find, the Cardinals have a first team, all WCAC women's basketball honoree in senior Alexandra Stipano.  Teammate Cece Leone earned second team honors as well, so it was a tremendous way to close out our regular season. The girls have one last home game, as the #4 seed in the VISAA playoffs, they will host the winner of #5 Liberty Christian vs #12 Cape Henry Collegiate game on Wednesday.  I hope you will join us; they play an exciting game!

Our spring season has been slowed by the weather, but don't lose heart, we will be out there soon!  We will do our best inside for track, baseball, softball, lacrosse, crew, tennis, and golf.
Sports News:

One more reminder, the NCSA recruiting presentation is Tuesday at 7 pm.  A 60-minute presentation will get you started, whether a 9th grader thinking of college athletics or a junior trying to sort out how to catch a coach or school's eye, this will present the information, field questions, and offer some software tools to manage the process. I hope you can join us - we still have room for a few more families!
In our own lives we strive to "control the controllable" so to speak.  As we begin another season the stress of tryouts; the subjective evaluations and uncertainties of coaches' decisions can be tough for our athletes. As parents, encourage your athlete to "control" those things that can be controlled, namely effort and attitude.  Your reassurance that you remain in "their corner" regardless of the outcome goes a long way with your child.
Sports Medicine
Healthy Skin in The Winter
The skin is the human body's largest organ and its first line of defense against infectious diseases so it is important to take care of it. The cold dry air of winter can be one of the skin's worst enemies. To maintain healthy skin stay hydrated; hydration in the cold months is just as important as hydration during the warm months. Using a skin moisturizer will also help to maintain strong healthy skin. While a healthcare provider's biggest concern with cuts and skin abrasions is the potential for infection, a competitive athlete's biggest concern can be having to leave a close game or match in the final minutes or seconds because a referee has sent them off the court or mat in order to cover a cut or scrape. Maintaining healthy skin can help this from happening and result in less playing time lost.
