Dear Parents & Student Athletes,
Fairfax County Public Schools have called for all schools to close at 6:15 pm. The basketball games scheduled for tonight are rescheduled to tomorrow night. The Crew pot luck dinner is next Tuesday.
We enjoyed a number of successes this past weekend with all of our winter teams, save hockey, in action. Cheer claimed the midsize varsity championship and overall grand champions at the Blue Ridge Classics in Lynchburg. Anna Shumate finished second in the 100 meter breaststroke in the huge Metro swim & dive meet at Georgetown Prep, in a SCHOOL record time of 1:02.62. Boys' basketball won both games at home and hosted a spirited alumni game. Trey Lovisone's second place paced our wrestlers at the WCAC championships Saturday.

When our ice hockey team entered the fray Monday night to kick off senior week for winter sports, they were dominating in a 6-2 win over Briar Woods. Boys' Basketball will hold their senior night Wednesday, as will the cheerleaders, while swim & dive hosts JPG Thursday at Marymount to say farewell to their departing swimmers and divers. The week will end with girls' basketball sending their graduating seniors off on Friday before the Holy Cross game and our wrestlers will send off their seniors at halftime of the girls' hoops. 
Want to take this time to again invite you to join us at 6 pm on Tuesday, Feb. 16th for a presentation from a PCA representative on Second Goal Parenting, a one-hour seminar on how to work with your coaches to ensure your athlete's team experience includes a healthy dose of life lessons to take with them when their high school sports career is over. Please join us; the Booster Club is providing food and drinks to make sure you evening is a pleasant one. Join us and our coaches for those refreshments and conversation.
What do coaches look for when you make your visit to their campus? Everything! Coaches say they watch how athletes treat their parents and siblings as clues to the type of teammate they will be, they watch how players warm up, and their preparation. They watch parents; do they encourage and support or do they "coach" from the sidelines, get "too involved" in the game; all things the coach sees as a window to what can be ahead for them when the potential recruit becomes their "player".
