This past weekend four Greeley swimmers headed to
Rochester to participate in what became the fastest boys' state swim
meet in NYS history. Out of 12 swimming and diving events, 10 records
were broken and in some cases shattered. Swimming on Friday in prelims,
Greeley's Aaron Saccurato (Sr.), Alex Smith (Sr.), River Elms (So.) and
Tyler Hill (Fr.) secured spots in finals on Saturday. The highlight on
Saturday for the Greeley boys was the 400 Free Relay. Swimming their
best time of the season landed them on the podium in 7th place. The
Section 1 team (of which Greeley is a part) placed 2nd out of the 11
sections in NYS. Individual Event Results: River Elms - 13th in 500
Free; Aaron Saccurato - 13th in 200 Free; Alex Smith - 14th in 100 Fly.
Congratulations to the boys for a great meet!

Preventing ACL Injury in Our Female Athletes
Tuesday, March 18,
7pm in the Greeley Gym
A leading orthopedic surgeon and a physical therapist
will share information and answer questions on how we can protect our female
athletes from injury. Get the
FROM THE ATHLETICS DIRECTOR:
Social Media Rules to Consider
1) After composing a Social Media message or video, but before you hit send, ask
yourself: "Would I be comfortable saying/showing this in front of my parents or
my grandparents?" If the answer is no, discard it.
2) Take pride in who/what you represent. In addition to representing your family
and hometown, you also represent Chappaqua School District/Horace Greeley High
School and your team.
3) Don't allow the impersonal nature of Social Media lull you into a false sense
of security. It's easy for a thought that materializes in your head while you're
lying in bed or sitting on the couch to suddenly find its way into Social Media.
But once you hit send, it's there for the world to see.
4) Don't use Social Media as an outlet to complain about how rough your life is.
You are working on an education, traveling to interesting places and competing
at a high level of interscholastic athletics. Thousands of people would like to
be in your shoes for the chance to enjoy the opportunities you have.
5) Chances are there are some young kids who may view you as a role model and
follow you on Social Media. Do their parents a favor and keep your Social Media
"family friendly." Don't type LMAO or LMFAO when LOL works just as well.
6) Don't use Social Media as an outlet to talk about how much you hate school.
You chose to become a student-athlete. If you hate school so much why are you
working so hard as an athlete in the first place?
7) Using the “Reply Button” to respond a Social Media communication when
profanity is used is no different than using it in your own original Social
Media communication. Don't do it.
8) Avoid replying to Social Media users with vulgar names. Do you really want to
be associated with @BigPhatBooty or @herpesboy?
9) Don't use Social Media daily telling people about how hard you're working on
the field/court/pool/weight room/etc. If you were really working that hard, you
wouldn't be on Social Media to tell us all about it.
10) Don’t allow yourself to be photographed while holding a drink. If you're
posing for a photo, put your drink behind your back or on a counter out of the
frame - even if you're only drinking water. If you are an athlete it should only
be soda or water.
11) Don't use Social Media after a tough loss. You pour your heart and soul into
training to become a champion, and losses are emotionally draining. Sleep on it.
Your followers will still be there tomorrow.
12) Enjoying a big win? Take 30 seconds to use Social Media as a "Thank You" to
the fans who were there to cheer you to victory.
13) Consider polarizing topics off limits on Social Media. Avoid commenting on
sexual orientation, race and religions you don't understand.
14) There are many other teams and student-athletes at your school. Take the
time to give them a shout-out on Social Media when they do big things.
Ultimately, you're all on the same team.
15) People want their experience on Social Media to be fun. Make a real effort
to use Social Media for far more positive content than negative.
16) What happens in the locker room stays there. Things that are said in private
team settings should never find their way onto Social Media. This includes video
of any sort.
17) Don't use Social Media during class. That's like disrespecting someone (in
this case, your teacher) behind their back. And always be mindful that your
teachers may be monitoring your Social Media account.
18) One of your Social Media followers may be in a position to hire you someday.
Evaluate your Social Media from time to time and ask yourself, "Would I want to
hire this person?" The future is yours. Films and print don’t lie.
19) If you feel that the Social Media guidelines, provided by your coaching
staff and/or athletic administrator, expect you to comply which prevents you
from "keeping it real,” then that should be your cue to re-evaluate your
definition of "keeping it real." Your team, coaches and school administrators
have your long-term best interest in mind.
20) Don't be fooled into believing nobody is paying attention.
