Water Polo Tournament At IUP

My water polo team recently had a tournament at IUP against the Lawrenceville Prep school from New Jersey. It was a lot of fun and went really well. We had three games. The first, a boys varsity game (I played in that one.), a girls game (Some boys played in that one because we needed subs so the girls could rest, so I played a little in that one.), and a novice game (In which I played a little, and then was retired in the second half.). It was my team's overall first game, and we were happy with our results.

We had practiced for three weeks with pool time at Citiparks pools: Highland and Ammon.

I scored once in the second game, and my brother scored an amazing half court shot to cap the four goals he made. I had a good amount of assists and I played pretty well in all three games, playing the best in the varsity mens' game when I was more fresh. The only set back was that I am an eleven year old and the opposing team was made up of high school kids. I think that I can honestly say that I definitely kept with them and held my own.

I was reasonably nervous, but I guess that is understandable considering the circumstances in which I was playing, the circumstances including age and experience. It was a bit intimidating in the beginning. But when you start to really play, there are some set backs, but the rules are the over all equalizers.

Some of our 'go-to-guys' included my brother in the hole, and Tate Williams playing strong as well in different positions. We had a pretty well rounded team, and did rather well.

Cancer Patient Meets Olympic Gold Medalist | Firstcoastnews.com | Sports

Cancer Patient Meets Olympic Gold Medalist | Firstcoastnews.com | Sports: "She says swimming helps keep her spirits high and her energy up.

Coutant also finds inspiration in Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps. She says they have something in common.

'He had something to overcome and he did,' says Coutant, referring to Phelps' ADHD. 'It was hard but he kept going with it and that inspired me.'

Coutant's dream has been to meet Phelps. This weekend, the local non-profit organization, Dreams Come True, made her wish come true.

Coutant and her family were flown to Phelps' hometown of Baltimore. They spent the day with him, eating lunch and watching him swim. Phelps also autographed her swim cap.

'It has definitely inspired me to try even harder and go even farther,' says Coutant.

Guys with Ties of Jacksonville is Coutant's sponsor for Dreams Come True. Dreams is the only locally based non-proft organization dedicated to fulfilling dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses.

Idita Splash

The Nome Northstar Swim Team, a USA Swimming affiliated team in Nome, Alaska, is asking for some help. They are trying to spread the word about their "Idita-Splash" fitness event. Visit their web site at www.idita-splash.com. The Idita-Splash fitness event was created at the request of Iditarod and water fans, as an event to promote physical fitness (through aquatics) in the spirit of the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod Sled Dog Race begins in Anchorage, Alaska and ends 1049 dog miles away under the finish arches in Nome, Alaska. Anyone, anywhere, can complete the Idita-Splash (while keeping themselves fit) by totaling all of their water activity minutes (lap swims, water aerobics and classes, etc.) from January 2nd to March 31st, 2009, with a goal of logging 1049 minutes. You can log your minutes anywhere you swim! They hope that we will join them for this year's event and get in the best shape of your life! Registration is $25.00 for the event, which includes an event T-shirt. For a $45.00 registration fee, you can get an event "hoody" sweatshirt. All proceeds go to the Nome Northstar Swim Team, a team of 39 swimmers aged 7-16 years old. Funds are used to pay for team costs, which includes airfare to meets, as their team has to fly at least 500 air miles to compete against their nearest USA Swim team!
