Hartwick Eliminating Water Polo???


I have no specifics, only what was posted on the Hartwick Water Polo Facebook Page....


The Water Polo Team has been notified of their unjust removal from athletics at Hartwick College. Unfortunately, we won't be heard by the president or board of trustees unless we have an overwhelming amount of support from alumni and students. We will keep everyone updated as we begin this fight! #gohawks

Fort Lauderdale Masters Challenge continues rich swimming tradition

For the ultra-competitive swimmer who misses the challenge and thrill of getting on the starting blocks, to the novice swimmer looking to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle in a friendly environment, the Swim Fort Lauderdale Masters program may just be the ticket.
Swimmers ranging in age from 22 to 82 recently had an opportunity to put their talents on display and compete in the 25th Annual Fort Lauderdale Masters Challenge over the Presidents Day weekend at the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Center. Over 200 participants from 15 different Masters swim programs enjoyed team relays and individual races in the short-course format.
The meet was open to swimmers age 18 and over, with the stipulation that the athletes be registered with the United States Masters (USMS) or International Swimming Federation Masters (FINA) swimming organizations.
Fort Lauderdale residents Peggy Costantini and Jennifer Wilder are relative newcomers to the Masters swim program and this was their first swim meet under that classification. There was some normal trepidation just before the meet, and the nervous butterflies were present.
"I've always wanted to do this and I wanted to push myself a little," said Costantini, who swam in five events. "I do some running, biking and yoga, and also synchronized swimming, but I wanted to try this and I just love the Masters program. I come here three to four times a week at 5:30 a.m. before work."
A little friendly coercion convinced Wilder to join her friend.
"Peggy wanted me to suffer with her," Wilder said with a smile. "I was (at one time) afraid of the water, but the coaches are awesome and I'm enjoying this. Peggy talked me into competing and I'll be swimming in three events."
On the other end of the experience spectrum is 74-year-old Doug Buchan, of Fort Lauderdale. The former Adelphi University swimmer joined the USMS at age 25 and is a five-time National Masters Champion.
"This is my heaven; this is truly the fountain of youth," Buchan said. "This is so much fun to get up on the blocks and still do it. I'm here every day in the morning for my workout. I have shoulder issues, but I'm still able to swim and compete. The competition is always great no matter the age. We have so much fun here and we're all buddies."
Leading the way through training and motivation is Marty Hendrick, the head coach of the Swim Fort Lauderdale Masters program. A member of the Broward County Sports Hall of Fame, Hendrick is joined by fellow Masters coaches Megan Lassen and Michael Averett.
"We have a group from Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and Canada who are here for this event, and they are participating along with the 90 swimmers from our Masters club," Hendrick said. "Every year we cross our fingers and hope we have a beautiful weekend like we have right now. We've increased our numbers over the years ... We have a lot of fitness swimmers who are here to have fun."
