Schedule for this week

Tue February 17 2009 @ 03:51 PM

Parents and Players,

I think that most of us have gotten over Sunday's championship game (with the possible exception of Meghan!). It's never fun to lose a championship game, but in going over the game (many times!), our girls played very well. There wasn't much more we could have done. Sometimes you just have to give the other team credit! I'm proud of them for playing hard through the final buzzer, regardless of the score.

I am trying to arrange gym time for this week. I haven't heard anything yet, but I'm pretty sure we'll be practicing on Thursday night at 8:00 PM. If I can't get a gym time for tomorrow, we'll probably practice Friday night. I'll try for the early (5:00 PM) slot. I'll send another e-mail out when everything is confirmed.

Tonight is the draw for the Archdiocesan playoffs. I'll get you the time, location, and opponent later tonight or tomorrow morning. We will definitely be playing on Saturday. If we win, we will not play again until next Saturday.

Thanks, Coach Roynan

Practice Tomorrow Night (2/13)

Thu February 12 2009 @ 04:09 PM

Parents and Players,

Just wanted to give you a heads up that we'll also be practicing tomorrow at 5:00 PM at St. Robert's. We'll be off Saturday. We'll go until Mr. Greenfield's team kicks us off the court, but probably no later than 6:15 PM. I understand the girls have a dance tomorrow night.

Please let me know if there are any conflicts for tomorrow's practice.

Thanks, Coach Roynan

No Practice Tonight (2/11)

Wed February 11 2009 @ 11:31 AM

Parents and Players,

First, congratulations on the win last night and for reaching the Region 11 Championship game and the Archdiocesan Tournament. Many people especially commented on how well we defended last night. If we defend and rebound like that for one more game, we have a great chance to repeat as Region 11 Champions!

We will not practice tonight. First, I have a business dinner that I forgot about (that's one of the reasons we played last night instead of tonight!), so I cannot make it. Second, in checking the practice schedule, it appears that I misread the practice times. We are not scheduled for Jamison tonight. Third, the girls deserve a night off. So go watch the Boys team play their semi-final game tonight at 7:45 PM at St. Robert's and root for them to join us in the Championship Doubleheader on Sunday.

We will be practicing tomorrow at 8:00 PM at St. Robert's. I'm also trying to get a practice time for Saturday, probably the 2:50 PM slot. I'll move that up to 1:40 if there is not going to be a game in front of us. If I can't get a Saturday slot, I'll look for a late afternoon (4:30 or 5:00 PM) time on Friday.

Thanks, Coach Roynan

Practice Tomorrow

Sun February 08 2009 @ 12:44 PM

Parents and Players,

We will practice tomorrow at 8:15 PM until about 9:30 PM at St. Robert's, right after Mr. Greenfield's team plays St. David's at 7:00 PM. The St. Albert/OLHC game is being played tomorrow night at 7:30 at St. ALbert's, and Mr. Marron is going to go watch the game and take notes. He'll call us after the game and let us know who won.

Please let me know if you cannot make the practice.

Thanks, Coach Roynan

Semifinal Game Tuesday Night

Sat February 07 2009 @ 04:44 PM

Parent and Players,

St. Alphonsus defeated Ambler Catholic today, resulting in a 3-way tie for 1st place in the Region. That necessitated using the 3-way tiebreaker process that was recently voted in by the Region's Athletic Directors. There is no regular season champion declared (the regular season champion gets an automatic berth in the Archdiocesan playoffs). In this process, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd seeds are drawn to determine playoff seeding, and then the two Region 11 finalists will be the two Archdiocesan representatives from Region 11.

The draw was held right after the Ambler/Alphonsus game. Meghan McCabe was our representative, and after the other two teams drew their numbers, Meghan selected ours. Meghan came through for us again, and we are seeded #1. We will play the winner of the St. Albert/OLHC game on Tuesday night at Archbishop Wood at either 6:15 or 7:30 PM. St. Alphonsus is the #2 seed and will play the winner of the Ambler Catholic(#3 seed)/St. Catherine game.

I'm trying to get a practice time set up for Monday, and will let you know when I do. I'm going to try to find a team to practice/scrimmage against so we can work on a few things against a full team. Please let me know right away if there are any issues with either the practice or the game.

Thanks, Coach Roynan

No Practice Tonight

Thu February 05 2009 @ 03:05 PM

Parents and Players,

Because of all the juggling to fit in last night's game, we gave up our practice time tonight. I'll see you tomorrow at 6:45 for the 7:15 PM game vs OLHC.

I told the girls last night that I'm disappointed in the outcome of the game, but not in their effort. They played hard, they played well, and they played as a team. I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to coach such a talented, hard-working, and enjoyable group of girls.

Tomorrow's Game Postponed

Mon January 26 2009 @ 12:29 PM

Parents and Players,

Tomorrow's game against Ambler Catholic has been postponed until next week. We will practice at 6:00 PM tomorrow as originally scheduled.

Please let me know ASAP of any conflicts next week that would prohibit you/your daughter from attending the rescheduled game. I'm looking at Tuesday (2/3) or Wednesday (2/4) of next week.

We play OLGC on Sunday at OLGC, then next Friday, 2/6 at home at 7:15 PM vs OLHC. The Friday game is the middle game of a triplheader that night, and if it's anything like this past Friday's doubleheader, it will be loud and exciting.

I'm sure you already know that I'm very proud of how hard the girls have worked this year, but especially so for this past weekend. Whether or not we won the game (and don't get me wrong, that's a great win!), they showed a lot of character in fighting to stay in it. Before the game I told them that all I wanted them to do was play hard, have fun, and give themselves a chance to win - and they did.

Thanks, Coach Roynan

Remaining Games Posted

Tue January 20 2009 @ 12:08 PM

Parents and Players,

The remaining games that were tentatively scheduled have been confirmed. They are as follows. All games are at St. Robert:

Sunday, 1/25, 7:30 PM vs St. Hilary

Tuesday, 1/27, 6:00 PM vs. Ambler Catholic

Friday, 2/6, 7:15 PM vs. Our Lady Help of Christians

We have games this week tomorrow night at St. Catherine, and Saturday at home vs. St. Alphonsus-McCloskey. I have been very understanding in accommodating the various conflicts that have arisen, so I am asking that whatever conflicts exist for the remaining games, but especially for St. Alphonsus and Ambler Catholic, be resolved in favor of attending the CYO games. I know there is at least one conflict for tomorrow night's game.

Tonight's practice will go until about 7:30 PM, since the time slot behind ours is open. Please let me know if you will not be there.

Thanks, Coach Roynan
