SALAMANCA WARRIORS!FOOTBALL:Tyler Hedlund - Character Athlete of the Game (Ellicottville)Jeremiah Shoup - Character Athlete of the Game (Catt/LV October 26, 2017)Salamanca Warriors - Class "D" ChampionsIra John - Big 30 Impact Yardage - Player of the WeekTyler Hedlund - BIG 30 - SafetyGirls Swim:
The Original record was by Kelly Andrews in 1989 at 212.00, Lindsey Forthman broke it in 2012 with a score of 220.12, and Mushirah broke it with a 227. This is not a specific dive, however, you get your total from the combination of 6 dives. It was also the first time Mushirah threw a back double, and a reverse double. She had only learned those dives a few days before, and fearlessly competed with them. Mushirah has the drive and determination to complete anything she wants. Mushirah has worked very hard with finesse and increasing her degree of difficulty in her dive selection and it has paid off. She is throwing reverse 2 somersaults. Back 2 somersaults, Inwards 1 ½ and front doubles. Each with degree of difficulty of a 2.2 or higher. She is an easy athlete to coach, as she has great kinesthetic sense of where her body is in the air. She also has the desire to challenge herself and be a risk taker by learning these very difficult dives. She is competing at the CCAA championships on Thursday beginning at 3:30 in Olean along with teammate Kam Cook for an 11 dive competition. She is also qualified for the Section 6 Championships as well next Thursday.
Mushirah was also selected as the Athlete of the Week by the Olean Times Herald.
Our Swimmin Women will compete at Sectionals on Wednesday at Erie Community College. We'd like to wish them Best of Luck. Athletes competing are:
