Swimmer sets new team records!
Erin Daley broke two longstanding Dryden High School Girls' Swimming records on Saturday, Nov. 8 at the Section IV Class C Meet. A 25-year old record in the100 Free set by Jennifer Larkin (56.11) fell as Erin swam 55.90. In the 50 Free, Erin swam 25.50 in which the former record was 25.60 by Sheila Rhoades in 2006. Congratulations Erin and the entire girls swim team on your fifth place finish at Sections.
Important Cheerleading Information
11/10: After an exhaustive compliance review, Superintendent Sherwood has verified that we are in compliance with the new cheerleading regulations and therefore can declare our teams competitive for this season, and seasons moving forward (both Fall and Winter seasons are covered by these regulations from now on). Both the Varsity and JV teams will be competitive, so Middle School girls will still have to pass selective classification to participate. Those girls wishing to do so must wait for further direction from the Athletic Department.
Clarification on the 11/5 letter: The Athletics office mistakenly stated in an 11/5 letter that the school’s insurance provider would not provide coverage for our team. The decision to not allow competitive cheer was not made by the insurance company, rather was made by the school, based on discussions with the insurance provider about the issue of risk management. Both sides shared concerns about being in compliance with new regulations.
