WOW! I had the pleasure of watching our swim team go up against MCC yesterday. If you want a BIG LIFT watching GREAT SPORTSMANSHIP and GREAT SPIRIT, go to one of our FREE swim meets! If you have any swimmers in your class, please tell them that you are proud of them --- they encouraged and helped numerous MCC swimmers get through their races with the same support they gave their same swimming bears. Our bear swimmers are fantastic athletes. Thanks to Coach Gailey and Coach Lane for "setting the example" and to Mr. Steger, Ms. Martin, and Mr. Kaminski for showing up to support the team. There is a nice write up in the paper
today. To quote Coach Gailey (and I WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree!): We have the most ethnical diverse swim team there has ever been. If the world could get along with each other like the members of our team we would not need to worry about terrorist. The Today News reporter was there last night and said in her 30 years covering sports she has never seen a eam with more sportsmanship or team spirit than ours..... Win or lose Bayside swimmers always leave as our meets as winners...
