Tampa Prep Swim and Dive celebrate their success
at the St. Pete Relays!

Tampa Prep Swimmers and Divers have had a busy and successful last seven days on the boards and in the pool! Over the last week TPSD has competed in two dual meets, a relay meet and has shown a lot of promise for the 2014 campaign.

St. Pete Relays
Tampa Prep had its best finish yet at the 2014 Total Team Wares Relay Meet in St. Pete this past weekend. TPSD chooses every year to attend one of the top relay meets in the state and race most of the 3A and 4A schools. TPSD finished 2nd overall as a team, 2nd overall in women and 3rd overall in men. TPSD also brought home the 1st place trophy for top 1A school!  TPSD recognition did not stop there as our girls' team set two meet records in the 100 Freestyle Relay and 100 Medley Relay (Caroline Brown, Ava Carter, Hannah Fredlake and Savannah Savitt were on both relays). We had sixteen top five finishes, ten top three finishes and six 1st-place finishes at this Swimming and Diving relay meet! It was a total team effort from our swimmers and divers!!!  A big thank you to all our fans that sported red in the stands and cheered for us on a VERY hot day.

Tampa Prep Vs Newsome High
TPSD girls meet came down to the wire as they just edged out the 2012 Girls Team State Champions Newsome High School! It was a total team effort with so many of our young swimmers and divers stepping up. It was a great victory for this team so early in the season. Our boys team came away with a fantastic win as well last night bringing both teams to a 2-0 record. Thank you to all the volunteers and officials that made this meet happen.

From Coach Bruno Quattrone
The Varsity Boys Golf team is constantly evolving into a strong, improved team with every match. The team is focusing on their incredible improvement, rather than wins and losses. If they try hard to get better every day, then winning will come as the result of their hard work. This shift in attitude has been a success thus far in the season! During the team's first match, three golfers were able to post career low scores. Bo Blair bettered his previous season's nine-hole stroke average by 10 shots! Nick Stambo bettered his previous personal best by 12 strokes. Kyle Castro also posted a career best nine-hole score by 7 strokes during our first match. The team is focused and determined to make strides every match!

Student-athletes learn about PCA's concept
of the ELM Tree of Mastery.

For the second time in two weeks, Terrapin Athletics and the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) sat with coaches and student-athletes to talk about their shared vision for the upcoming school year. The goal of both organizations is to create an environment that supports the school's core values (Honesty, Kindness, Respect and Responsibility) through not just talk, but also outward demonstrations of support as well.

The main message of these seminars was based on PCA's concept of the ELM Tree of Mastery. E stands for Effort. L stands for Learning and improvement and M stands for bouncing back from Mistakes. Terrapin Athletics is looking forward to continuing this conversation with its student-athletes, coaches and parents throughout the school year with more seminars.

 The Women's Varsity 4 compete in their final race.

From Head Coach Steven Maher
The FSRA Scull and Sweep Championships concluded in April and Prep rowers represented their teammates and work ethic with great racing and close finishes. At the FSRA Sculling Championships, sophomore Madelynn Rey raced in the heats and semifinals to earn a spot in the second of three levels of finals where she finished 6th. She was able to beat several other singles and was on the heels of the pack in what was her first weekend of racing in a new event.  Sophomore Jeremy Leeds raced in heats earning a spot in the third level final, where he finished 6th. Jeremy also picked up sculling this year and placed well as a young member of a highly competitive varsity event. Senior Josh Kravitz made the A final and separated from the pack with three other singles, finishing 3rd to the fastest rower in Florida. Not only did Josh place in the Men’s Single, he finished 1st among scholastic programs and defended his championship from last year!

 The Men's Varsity 4 last race was one of the closest
and most
exciting race of the day!

At the FSRA Sweep Championships, Prep entered four crews, a Men’s and Women’s Junior 4 and a Men’s and Women’s Varsity 4; and all evaded elimination to make it to the Sunday finals. The Women’s Varsity 4 had a rough race and finished 6th in the third level final after racing extremely well in the heats, reps and semifinals. The Women’s Junior 4 also raced well in the heats and finals and earned a 5th place finish in the second level final of their event. Without a junior or senior in these two boats, these rowers represent some of the fastest sophomores and freshmen in Florida and gained valuable racing experience that they can use in next season’s championships. The Men’s Junior 4 utilized a couple different lineups throughout their heats and finals races, but every lineup raced well as the boat finished 5th in the second level final. The Junior 4 really came together in the last 4 weeks of the season and represented the depth of the men’s team. The Men’s Varsity 4 qualified for the A final and raced in perhaps the closest and most exciting race of the day. In the final, Tampa Prep and St. Edwards went stroke for stroke for the entire one-mile race with Saint Edwards beating Tampa Prep by inches to take the Scholastic State Championship. The Varsity 4’s third place finish is one of the fastest and best in school history.

Two highlights of the season were the District Championships, where Prep finished with 2 first place crews and 2 second place crews, and the team winning more points at FSRA (94) than local rivals Hillsborough (89), Berkeley Prep (62) and Tampa Catholic (17). As Josh Kravitz, the only senior, graduates this year, the youth of this team should prove tough to beat in coming seasons. Row Red, Row Gold!
