Congratulations to the wrestlers on a great beginning of the season!

From Coach Andy Bricker
The Tampa Prep wrestling team traveled to Kissimmee-Osceola High School this past Saturday for the Marvin Haven Duals and came back with a 2nd-place trophy. This six-team dual meet tournament was a good starter for the Terrapins, as they won four straight duals before losing the last dual to the host school.

The Terrapins lacked the full 14 weight classes, so they had to give 30 points to each team because of the five missing roster spots. This is always a hard thing to deal with, but the Terrapins always find a way to make up the point spread by moving wrestlers up weights and looking for extra points in the matchups. With the mission in hand, the wrestlers started pinning their competition and showed the other teams that the Terrapins don’t need a full team to win duals.

The wrestlers’ individual records were: Jacob Conrad 4-1, Ashton Habeil 5-0, Aaron Mills 5-0, Donoven Hough 5-0, Anthony Artalona 4-1, Landon Carter 4-1,  Leo Tarantino 5-0, Michael McCloskey 3-2 and Michael deQuesada 0-5. These young men wrestled extremely well, especially for the ones that had to wrestle weight classes above their own to help the team. All in all this was a great start to a hopefully championship season.

Savannah S. after being awarded
the bronze medal for 100 BR.
Congratulations to all the swimmers and
the diver
who competed at the
State Championships meet!

From Coach Jason Bowes
This Saturday was an amazing ending to a fantastic season for Tampa Prep’s Swim and Dive Team at arguably one of the fastest State meets in years. The team broke two school records, posted several personal best times and had a fantastic performance on the boards!
 
For the Terrapin girls, Savannah Savitt had a breakout meet with a personal best by over 2 seconds in the 200 FR (1:51.33, 12th Place), along with another personal best and breaking her School Record for the 2nd time that day in the 100 BR (1:04.14)! Savannah’s performance earned her a Bronze Medal and All American Consideration. Despite a few set-backs earlier in the season, Hannah Fredlake finished off her season well with a 13th-place finish in the 500 FR (5:06.32).
 
On the men’s side, Fernando Sedano-Roman turned in two 12th-place finishes in a tight field of the 200 FR (1:42.29) and 100 FR (47.82). Van Cates also had a great meet, placing 9th in the 200 IM (1:55.64) and 6th in the 100 BK (51.25). Tampa Prep’s lone diver, Ian Peaslee, placed 11th in his first ever State Championship meet and only second year diving.
 
The meet concluded with some exciting relays for both the boys and girls teams. The 200 FR on the girls side (Ava Carter, Hannah Fredlake, Laura Smith and Caroline Brown) finished strong with an 8th-place finish and the season's best time of 1:41.14. The boys team followed that swim with a 7th-place finish and a new school record in the 200 FR Relay (Fernando Sedano-Roman, Van Cates, Jay Hutchinson and Tyler Duic) and a final time of 1:29.35. The 400 FR relays were equally exciting with the girls coming in 7th and a time of 3:37.13 (Savannah Savitt, Ava Carter, Caroline Brown and Hannah Fredlake) and the boys coming in 11th with a time of 3:18.07 (Van Cates, Fernando Sedano-Roman, Jay Hutchinson and Tyler Duic).
 
Overall the girls team came in 9th and the boys team came in 14th. Even though the season is over, this young team is hungry for more and looks forward to having an even better showing in 2015! We want to thank all the volunteers, officials, Tampa Prep faculty and staff, fans and families that supported TPSD this year. A big shout out to our amazing coaching staff that put in hours of time and preparation to make this season a success. We could not have done it with out all of you! Congratulations, TPSD, on a fantastic season! Go Prep!

PCA Founder Jim Thompson speaks to
parents about how to transform the culture
of youth and high school sports.

Last week, the Peifer Library was the scene of a fabulous presentation for parents. The Athletic Department and the Parent Education Committee of the TPPA sponsored an evening with the Positive Coaching Alliance featuring Mr. Jim Thompson, PCA's founder, and Eric Eisendrath. PCA's mission is to transform the culture of youth and high school sports so every athlete can have a positive, character-building experience. Mr. Thompson began by speaking about "relentless positivity" and how through personal experience he has seen the power of positivity and what it can do. Attendees received a copy of the book The High School Sports Parent and learned solutions to some of youth sports' most perplexing problems. To watch the entire presentation, visit www.tampaprep.org/tptvlive.

Congratulations to all the Terrapin Swimming and Diving State qualifiers!

From Coach Jason Bowes
The Tampa Prep Swimming and Diving Teams look to the upcoming FHSAA 1A State Championship as the final chapter in an already stellar season. Coming off of a tough and fast FHSAA Region 3 Meet at North Shore Pool in St. Petersburg, the Terrapins continue to see their talented girls battling through challenges at every meet. While minimal depth on the men’s side was expected, several swimmers have risen to the occasion and helped Tampa Prep stay in the hunt at every level.

At the 2014 FHSAA 1A Region 3 Championships, the Tampa Prep girls were led by Savannah Savitt and Ava Carter. Savannah took a win in the 100 Breast, 3rd in the 200 Free, and led the girls by winning the 400 Free Relay (Savannah Savitt, Ava Carter, Caroline Brown and Hannah Fredlake). She also led off the 200 Free Relay, which took second (Savannah Savitt, Ava Carter, Caroline Brown and Hannah Fredlake). Ava Carter also had a fantastic meet, finishing 3rd in the 50 Free. The Terrapin girls took the overall Class 1A Region 3 Runner-Up Title with 293.5 Points.

Tampa Prep's boys were led by their outstanding sophomore class. Van Cates claimed 2nd place in the 200 IM and 3rd place in the 100 Back. Fernando Sedano-Roman also chipped in with a 4th in 100 Free and 7th in the 200 Free. The Terps also took a bronze in the 200 Free Relay (Van Cates, Fernando Sedano-Roman, Jay Hutchinson and Tyler Duic.) Ian Peaslee also had a great day on the boards, finishing 4th overall. The Tampa Prep boys finished in a strong 5th Place with 183 Points.  

Tampa Prep Swimming and Diving teams are looking forward to a great 1A State meet this upcoming Saturday in Stuart, Florida. If you are interested in attending the meet, please visit the FHSAA website for more details.

Congratulations to the Middle School Boys Red Soccer team!

Congratulations to our Middle School Boys Red Soccer team for making the Championship game of the FWCL Gold Division Tournament. The boys won a close 1-0 game over St Mary's to advance to the Championship game against St John's Episcopal. Despite falling behind 2-0, the boys never quit and scored near the end of the first half to cut the lead to 2-1. The rest of the game was played evenly, and the team had their chances to equalize. The best chance came on a shot that rattled off the crossbar. The final scored stayed at 2-1, but it was an exciting game down to the final whistle.

Boys bowling team headed
to Districts!

From Coach Barry Parks

The Tampa Prep Boy's Bowling Team ended this week with a disappointing 5th place finish at the District tournament. The top 4 teams make it to the second part of the tournament which includes a double elimination baker set. The boys were led by Ben Hardin who shot an impressive 247 in his 3rd game. His 3-game total of 618 was high enough to qualify him for the State Tournament that takes place next week. Wish Ben some luck as he competes with the best bowlers from around the state! Also, be sure to thank Trent Miller, Caleb Quezon, Nick Riddell, Alex Riddell and Zac Beach for a great effort for the season. The boys finished the season with an impressive 11-4 record on the season. They will look forward to next season as there were no seniors amongst the team this year - ensuring a strong roster for the next season. Great job, boys! Go Red! Go Gold!

Congratulations to the Middle School swimmers
on all their hard work this season!

From Coach Meredith Roberts
The Middle School swimmers got to see their hard work pay off at 14th Annual Bay Area Middle School Classic last Saturday. Teams from Tampa Prep, Berkeley, St. John's Episcopal and Shorecrest Prep showed up for a 7:30 a.m. warm-up and and 8:30 start. All TPSD varsity swimmers and divers were also there to volunteer to time, organize swimmers and help lead in cheers! Thank you! A big thank you to our athletic director, Coach Flynn, for handing out medals! The students loved it!

Tampa Prep kicked off the meet in exciting fashion with a win in the women's 200 medley relay. Emma Stephens, Siena Capitano, Annalise Jankel and Katerina Wood were able to work together to earn the first-place medal. The boys team of Jack Forsyth, Jeffrey Winters, John Fields and Preston Gerardi also earned hardware by finishing in second place in the 400 free relay. Other notable finishes were Annalise Jankel's first place in the 100 free, Jack Forsyth's win in the 50 fly and Emma Stephen's 200 free victory. Tampa Prep took home top spot on the Boys side of the meet as our Girls came in 2nd overall. The meet ended with varsity swimmers leading the middle school team in a fun cheer.

Every single swimmer made great improvements from August. We are very proud of their efforts this season.
