Weekly news - 10/20/2008

Sun October 19 2008 @ 08:31 PM

To all:

Saturday, 10/18

That was quite a tournament! Somewhere in there, I saw the team that took two games from St. Joe's and almost won the match! I saw the team that took a game from St. Max before closing up shop for the day! But then I saw the team that dropped a game to ABVM, Pope John Paul, Our Lady of Victory and those 3 games to MDP at the Tournament of Champions.

I am confident that, if we stack the cards in our favor (good night's sleep, good breakfast, good food during the day coupled with focus and intensity when we play), that the right SSJ Varsity Maroon team will show up next Saturday & we can still make it to the Champsionship match. Do I have any other believers??? Yes, we can!

Sunday, 10/19

Although our opponent was not particularly challenging, I used Sunday's game to step back & just observe the girls to see if I am missing something... I will review my notes and pull out a few more tricks from my bag! thanks to Mrs. Amodei for running the bench.

Schedule for the week:

Tuesday, 10/21, 7 to 9pm, SSJ: scrimmage vs. St. Kevin's Wednesday, 10/22, 7 to 9pm, SSJ: practice Thursday, 10/23, 7 to 9pm, SSJ: practice Saturday, 10/25: Region 17 Varsity A Tournament Sunday, 10/26, 9am: Fall Sports Mass at SSJ. Wear your team shirt and long pants.

Region 17 tournament

Here's the info I have rec'd from Casey so far: _When the regular season games are finished, the standings will determine the seating for the tournament. I expect that we will be in 3rd place since the only teams we lost to were St. Max & St. Joe's. St. Max beat St. Joe's, so they are in 1st & St. Joe's are in 2nd.

The tournament will be held on Saturday Oct 25 at Shanahan. Pool play will start at 9 AM SHARP! Doors will open at 8:30; coaches will meet at 8:45. Pool A will have teams 1, 4, 5 and 8. Pool B will be everyone else (this should be us) Pool play will be two games to 25 starting at 4. The top two teams will come out of each pool with the top team in each pool playing the second place team in the other pool.

Both the semi finals and finals will be a best of 3 match.

Please tell your parents that there will be some bleacher seating but it may be limited due to having both courts in use so they may want to bring chairs (with rubber feet).

There will be a snack bar. _

Heads up for the following week:

We may have to move the end-of-season party to Wednesday, 10/29 (same night of the community service project) -or- make it later on 11/2 (3:30 - 5:30pm) because - there are club tryouts on 11/2 - Mrs. Russell will be returning from a duty weekend in Bethesda and she is not sure she can make it in time for the party.

Keep the change in mind & I will let you know if/when I am able to re-arrange the gym & Parish Center schedule...

Good luck and prayers to Allie G. as she works to strengthen that knee! Positive thoughts & prayers to everyone else!
