Dear all,

Save the date – the water polo banquet will be Thursday, November 19th at 7:00 pm in the MSJ cafeteria. We will again arrange catering with Italian cuisine from Mamma Lucia’s of Hanover. I will send out an email in early November with more details.

Regarding the remainder of the water polo season – the regular season ended today with the games at McDonogh. Varsity will play in the MIAA Championship playoffs beginning on Friday, October 23rd. Details about times will follow early next week, as they are dependent on the outcomes of games not yet played by other schools. The Eastern Prep tournament is Saturday/Sunday on November 7/8. As of now, the most likely location we will play is Lawrenceville, New Jersey, though pending the outcomes of tournaments next weekend among schools in Baltimore and in Philadelphia, it is possible we may play at the Episcopal Academy outside of Philadelphia. Stay tuned for details about times and locations for this tournament (please note also is coincides as it usually does with Mount Saint Joseph’s Open House weekend – players would be unable to work at Open House if in the tournament).

The JV season is technically over, and JV players are not required to come to practice (the coaches have already asked some JV players to continue to practice and join the Varsity bench for the post-season). However, all JV players are highly encouraged to continue to practice to help the team and continue to develop their individual skills in the pool over the next three weeks. If JV players elect to continue to practice, the coaches ask that they fully commit to the remainder of the season, and not just drop in on a part-time basis. Transportation to the pool will continue through November 6th.

Looking ahead – MSJ swim team practice will begin Thursday, November 12th.
